NKUâ€™s You Canâ€™t Take It With You Earns LCT Nomination
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Northern Kentucky Universityâ€™s production of You Canâ€™t Take It With You with an LCT nomination for featured actress (Abby Wagner) as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.
You Canâ€™t Take It With You is one of the most popular and successful plays of modern times, delighting audiences since 1936. Â This Pulitzer Prize winning comedy celebrates non-conformity as a man from a family of rich snobs becomes engaged to a woman from a good-natured but decidedly eccentric family.Â One dinner party and their familiesâ€™ differences ignite!
Panelists commended Abby Wagner, who played the balletically-challenged daughter Essie, for her â€œdazzling, loony choreographyâ€ who had â€œthe audience in stitchesâ€ with her contortions. Many thought she was the best Essie they have seen performed. Panelists recommended the production as a whole, saying the show â€œrendered the benign anarchy that reigns in the Sycamore household with a terrific ensemble castâ€ who had â€œspot-on comic timingâ€.
You Canâ€™t Take It With You continues through October 7th. Tickets can be purchased at http://artscience.nku.edu/departments/theatre/boxoffice.html.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
