Cincinnati Shakespeare Companyâ€™s â€œTwo Noble Kinsmenâ€ Earns 4 Star LCT Rating
Posted On May 5, 2014
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Cincinnati Shakespeare Companyâ€™s production of the Two Noble Kinsmen with a 4 Star Rating.
With Two Noble Kinsmen, a tale of two cousins imprisoned during war who both fall for the same woman, CSC â€œcompletes the canonâ€ and becomes one of only five Shakespeare companies in the country to produce all 38 of Shakespeareâ€™s plays. Panelists praised the play as â€œexciting and refreshingâ€; a â€œboldâ€ production that â€œany Shakespeare aficionado would not want to miss.â€ Andrew Hungerfordâ€™s lighting design was commended â€œas very effective in creating mood with the use of multiple colors to backlight the action.â€ Singled out among the actors was Miranda McGee, as â€œthe gaolerâ€™s daughterâ€; she was â€œradiantâ€ in her performance and â€œowned the text with mastery and created a memorable character.â€
Two Noble Kinsmen continues through May 25th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincyshakes.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.
