Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Parkâ€™s Cabaret with a 4 Star rating.
Cabaret, the renowned Kander and Ebb musical set in the Kit Kat Klub, a seedy pre-war nightclub in Berlin, chronicles the growing prejudice in Germany through the eyes of a visiting American writer.
Panelists said of Cabaret: â€œAn excellently produced and performed productionâ€¦Fantastic.â€ Panelists were particularly impressed with featured actress Mary Gordon Murray as Fraulein Schneider, â€œa standout, who was powerful and believableâ€ and gave â€œa moving performanceâ€. The chorus members were also praised for their outstanding dance and movement, aided by Marcia Milgram Dodgeâ€™s often â€œinspiredâ€ and â€œamazingâ€ choreography. Finally, Angela Wendtâ€™s was commended for her â€œstrikingâ€ costumes: â€œPearls, fringe, sequins and endless details made the costumes in this production simply stunning.â€
Cabaret continues through November 16th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincyplay.com.
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.
