Showboat’s “Don’t Drink the Water” Recognized by LCT
Posted On September 10, 2013
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized lead actors Christine Dye and Mike Dennis from Showboat’s Don’t Drink the Water for their excellent performances.-
In this cold-war comedy by Woody Allen, an American tourist and his family are taken for spies in a county behind the Iron Curtain and must be protected by the US ambassador’s bumbling son who is running the embassy.
Panelists praised the performances of Christine Dye and Mike Dennis, as the tourists, Marion and Walter Hollander: they “carried the play into its best moments…Both showed great comic timing in the machine-gun fire dialogue of Woody Allen…Their on-stage chemistry was great and made me feel like I was back home in Jersey.”
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.
