Diogenes Theatreâ€™s â€œBIBIâ€ Recognized by LCT
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Diogenes Theatreâ€™s premier production of BIBI for its excellence in sound and set design. BIBI, a new play by local playwright Kalman Kivkovich, is a one man play loosely based on the life of Israelâ€™s charismatic prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Panelists praised scenic designer Mark Halpin for designing â€œa functional set with elegantly simple solutions for multiple locations and a nice surprise with a shift to the UN.â€Â They were also impressed by David Levyâ€™s sound design, â€œ taking us to the courtyard, the auditoriums, the phones, and the wonderful harp.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.
