Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have awarded Falcon Theatreâ€™s production of The Woman in Black a 4.5 (out of 5) star recommendation, calling it â€œmaster storytelling.â€
One of the longest-running plays in London, this classic Victorian ghost story is set in a theater. The two actors, Matt Dentino and Jay Dallas Benson, both nominated by the LCT Panel, play multiple roles. â€œThis is a spooky, layered, labyrinthine story,â€ one panelist said. â€œBenson and Dentino do a good job of telling the story while portraying multiple characters with different dialects.â€
The LCT Panel also awarded nominations for lighting, sound, and for the direction by Ted Weil and Tracy M. Schoster.
â€œTechnically, the show is spectacular,â€ a panelist said. â€œThe direction, lights and sound are what bring this show to life.â€
According to a panelist, â€œThis show is perfectly timed for the season and one of the most entertaining productions this region has seen in some time.â€
Falcon Theatreâ€™s The Woman in Black runs Oct. 24-25 and Oct. 31-Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.falcontheatre.net or 513-481-9042.
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.
