Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized lead actor Matt Dentino, choreographer Kate Glasheen, and costume designer Caren Young for their contributions to Covedale Theatre’s Will Rogers Follies.
The Will Rogers Follies is the Tony award winning musical that chronicles the life of Will Rogers, one of America’s most beloved humorists, entertainers, and pundits, who captivated the country with his common sense wisdom.
Panelists were enamored of Matt Dentino’s performance as Will Rogers: “Matt Dentino delivers as the homespun, nonchalant and witty title character…full of charm and talent…He made me believe he WAS Rogers.” Of Caren Young’s costume design, panelists wrote: “Lavish designs with thoughtful color coordination…This was supposed to be a Ziegfeld Follies, and the costumes for the 13-member chorus measured up. The variety was impressive.” Finally, Kate Glasheen’s choreography was highly praised: “fast-paced, complicated, and perfectly executed.”
Covedale’s Will Rogers Follies runs through August 31st. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com
Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT party in the summer.
