Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized New Edgecliff Theatreâ€™s Santaland Diaries/12 Dates of Christmas with an LCT nomination for lead actress (Annie Kalahurka).
In Santaland Diaries, Everyoneâ€™s favorite elf, Crumpet, the elf fixated on spastic children, obnoxious parents, nutty co-workers and, oh yeah, One Life to Live, is back in an alternative holiday favorite. Then, in The 12 Dates of Christmas: what happens when Mary sees her fiancÃ© making out with his co-worker on national TV at the Macyâ€™s Thanksgiving Day Parade? She dumps him and then spends the next year being set up, hooked up, strung up, and fed up as she navigates her life â€œaloneâ€ as a New York actor in her thirties.
Annie Kalahurkaâ€™s performance as Annie was praised by panellists, noting that â€œher command of the hour-long one-woman show showcased a mastery of comedy, drama, and multiple characters and voices.â€
Santaland Diaries/12 Dates of Christmas continues through December 8th. Tickets can be purchased at http://newedgecliff.com.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
