Showboat’s “George M!” Earns LCT Nomination
Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized the Showboat Majestic’s “George M!” with a nomination for Matt Dentino as lead actor in a musical.
GEORGE M! tells the life story of George M. Cohan, a giant of the American musical theater who gave us such songs as â€œYankee Doodle Dandyâ€, â€œOver Thereâ€, â€œYou’re A Grand Old Flagâ€, and â€œGive My Regards to Broadwayâ€, and who transformed the Broadway variety show into a book-driven musical where song and dance advance plot.
Matt Dentino, who played George M. Cohan, was nominated for lead actor in a musical. Panelists thought that he was â€œpolished, confident and utterly in command of the roleâ€ and that he showed â€œgreat enthusiasm and showmanshipâ€.
“George M!” continues through July 29th. Tickets can be purchased at www.cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com/sbm.
Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
