Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will present its Season of the Woman in 2019-20, featuring women in traditional male roles (such as Hamlet and Sherlock Holmes) and productions of "August: Osage County" and "The Merry Wives of Windsor." To provide a full rundown of the upcoming season, Artistic Director Brian Isaac Phillips is with Jim Stump in the studio.
To commemorate the opening of the new Cincinnati Shakespeare Company theatre, they are teaming with the Cincinnati Museum Center to present a temporary exhibit featuring a First Folio, one of 234 original published copies of Shakespeare's works.
From new amenities to improved access, many arts venues around town are getting major makeovers. Starting in June, Music Hallwill be closed for the most detailed renovation in its nearly 140-year history. Memorial Hall closed last May and is currently under renovation. Over-the-Rhine is also getting a new theater on the corner of 12th and Elm streets.
Sara Clark, the artistic associate director at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, joins our Jim Stump with a preview of the theater’s Shakespeare in the Park productions starting in August and the 2015-16 mainstage season.
