Showboatâ€™s â€œDonâ€™t Drink the Waterâ€ 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 Showboatâ€™s Donâ€™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 ambassadorâ€™s bumbling son who is running the embassy.
Panelists praised the performances of Christine Dye and Mike Dennis, as the tourists, Â Marion and Walter Hollander: they â€œcarried the play into its best momentsâ€¦Both showed great comic timing in the machine-gun fire dialogue of Woody Allenâ€¦Their on-stage chemistry was great and made me feel like I was back home in Jersey.â€
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.
