New Edgecliffâ€™s â€œBus Stopâ€ Earns 4 Star LCT Rating
Posted On October 1, 2013
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati New Edgecliffâ€™s Bus Stop with a 4 Star Rating.
In Bus Stop, five weary travelers are stranded at a roadside diner when a winter snowstorm halts their bus. Friendships and romances ensue.
Panelists praised Bus Stop as â€œa solid opening production by New Edgecliff of a wonderful Inge classic. Nicely directed and designed with a talented cast of local actorsâ€; â€œa really good show with relatable characters, a strong cast that made me laugh out loud, and think.â€ Christine Dyeâ€™s portrayal of Grace was singled out; she was â€œa hoot! Her timing and delivery was on point and she was so natural and at ease with her character.â€ Robert Allen was also applauded for his role as Dr. Lyman: â€œAs a basically unlikeable character, he could have been almost a caricature, but in Bob Allen’s capable hands, he showed remorse and a self-awareness that made him almost sympathetic.â€
League of Cincinnati Theatre panelists evaluate productions on a 5 star scale and recommend shows at either a 4 star or 5 star level. Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT gala in the spring.
