First, don’t forget that at 9am today tickets for Disney’s THE LION KING went on sale at the Aronoff Center. Also, I ran into Stephanie Park last night at CCM’s CAROLS FOR A CAUSE. Her last city on the CINDERELLA tour (before she heads off to THE KING AND I on Broadway!) is Cincinnati, which I was thrilled to hear.
Tonight, Falcon Theatre opens THE EIGHT: REINDEER MONOLOGUES featuring this all-star cast:
Dasher – Eric Day
Cupid – Mike Fielder
Hollywood – AJ Ford
Blitzen – Linnea Bond
Comet – Terry Gosdin
Dancer – Lisa Dirkes
Donner – David Levy
Vixen – Leah Strasser
“Tired of the standard family-friendly Christmas fare? Want a little less jingle and a little more coal in your stocking? Have we got the show for you: eight reindeer dishing about the real Santa. You’ve heard about the rumors about him and what he does in the toy shop. You’ve seen Vixen on late night talk shows, and heard about Rudolph’s big secret. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and believe us: they do not hold back! Eight: The Reindeer Monologues is an adult romp up to the North Pole (and down Santa’s… well, you get the idea).”
I’ll be there . . . ready or not! Tickets and more info can be found here.
Also tonight, THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING opens in College Hill. It features Cate White and is directed by Lyle Benjamin.This one-woman show opens on Friday and runs through December 28th at the College Hill Town Hall. Tickets are $20 and are available here. They are offering a Two for One special on opening weekend using the code “Magical Weekend” at CincyTicket.com.
Also don’t forget about SLEEPING BEAUTY, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, FOREVER PLAID: PLAID TIDINGS, BLACK FLY SPRING, ELF THE MUSICAL, TENDERLY: THE ROSEMARY CLOONEY STORY, BUREAU OF MISSING PERSONS, and all the other great shows that are playing. For a complete list go to Rob Bucher’s BEHIND THE CURTAIN CINCINNATI and make your weekend plans now!
I’ll see you at the theatre.
