Showboat’s “Arsenic and Old Lace“ Earns LCT Nomination

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Showboat Majestic’s “Arsenic and Old Lace” with a nomination for scenic design.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” is an American comedy classic, in which we meet the charming and innocent old ladies, the Brewster sisters, who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the murderous activities of another brother while the younger brother Mortimer is trying to get married to a regular girl.

Matt Lape was nominated for scenic design. Panelists thought it was an “impressive” and “ingenious” use of space, which made “every inch of it workable for the actors”.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” continues through July 1st. Tickets can be purchased at

Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
