Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Cincinnati Playhouse in the Parkâ€™s Complete History of Comedy (Abridged) with a 4 Star Rating, the Abridged Shakespeare Companyâ€™s latest world premiere that skewers comedy in all its forms.
Panelists called The Complete History of Comedy â€œhilariousâ€: â€œI had fun! And laughed! I’ve already recommended this production to a number of people and will keep recommending it.â€ The entire ensemble was commended (Reed Martin, Austin Tichenor and Dominic Conti): â€œThey did an outstanding job with this material and it was a delight to watchâ€¦The energy from these three was contagious, and the audience enjoyed being a part of the show.â€ Martin and Tichenor were also applauded for their efforts scripting this world premiere. One panelist commented: â€œIt is hard to condense so much comedic history into two hours and they did an admirable job with the play.â€
The Complete History of Comedy, Abridged continues through October 29th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincyplay.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.
