Playhouseâ€™s Serves Up Delectable â€œSpaghettiâ€ for LCT Recommendation
Posted On October 3, 2014
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have awarded Playhouse in the Parkâ€™s production of I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti a 4 star recommendation.
I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti is based on Giulia Melucciâ€™s popular memoir of food and dating. For Giulia, a new date is the perfect opportunity to show off her Italian home cooking. While preparing a three-course dinner from scratch, she recounts stories of good food and bad boyfriends. Her superior tasting cuisine far surpasses her inferior taste in men in this mouth-watering new comedy.
Panelists enjoyed the show immensely: â€œThis delectably hilarious one-woman show is as delicious as the traditional Italian meal being prepared on stage…. a great way to kick off the Shelterhouse Season.â€ They praised actress Antoinette LaVecchiaâ€™s fun and animated portrayal: â€œHer seamless performance appeared effortless as she wove together fast-paced dialogue, food preparation, and an engaging rapport with each of us in the audience for two hours. Once in her kitchen, none of us wanted to leave!â€ Director Rob Ruggiero was also singled out for his work, as well as set designer John Coyne for his creation of â€œa gourmet chef’s kitchen, complete with every tool and ingredient a cook needs. No detail was left unattendedâ€.
Playhouseâ€™s I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti runs through November 2nd. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.cincyplay.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.
