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.
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company continues the rarely done eight play History Cycle (Shakespeare plays about kings in chronological order, done only one other time in the US) with the classic Henry V. Justin McCombs, who takes on this iconic role, joins Jim Stump to talk about the cycle and his interpretation of this larger-than-life character.
