Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have awarded Falcon Theatre’s production of The Woman in Black a 4.5 (out of 5) star recommendation, calling it “master storytelling.”
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. “This is a spooky, layered, labyrinthine story,” one panelist said. “Benson and Dentino do a good job of telling the story while portraying multiple characters with different dialects.”
The LCT Panel also awarded nominations for lighting, sound, and for the direction by Ted Weil and Tracy M. Schoster.
“Technically, the show is spectacular,” a panelist said. “The direction, lights and sound are what bring this show to life.”
According to a panelist, “This show is perfectly timed for the season and one of the most entertaining productions this region has seen in some time.”
Falcon Theatre’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.
