Playhouse is the Park will soon open the world premiere of a provocative new drama, Abigail/1702, which speculates on the life of Abigail Williams (from The Crucible) if she escaped Salem through the forest and started a new life elsewhere. The play is set 10 years after the infamous witch trials, while Abigail still tries to atone for the sins we know of, and others we don’t. Rick Pender is joined in studio by Stephanie Fieger, the actor who is portraying Abigail, who talks about the play and her debut at the Playhouse.
Director Michael Haney and actor Bruce Cromer join Rick Pender to discuss the Playhouse in the Park’s annual holiday production of A Christmas Carol. They talk about how they keep the show fresh now that it’s in its 22nd year, with Cromer portraying Scrooge for the 8th year.
The Blake Robison era at Playhouse in the Park begins this week with the opening production of The Three Musketeers. Rick Pender welcomes the new artistic director to discuss his transition to Cincinnati and why he chose this classic as his opening production.
