Several years in the making, Playhouse in the Park is ready for the stage debut of their original musical production based on Cincinnati's iconic record label, King Records

In honor of the 75th anniversary of King Records this month, the last special I'm producing has a potpourri of topics from a look at the Tokyo Happy Coats and Playhouse in the Park's production of "Cincinnati King" to Darren Blase's efforts to showcase his King Records collection at Shake It Records, plus the preservation work being done to save the King Records studio on Brewster Avenue.  

This King Records Potpourri special will air on Saturday night, September 22nd, at 11pm and again Sunday evening, September 23rd, at 7pm.

The 2018-19 season at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park features a new, locally-produced King Records production, plus shows from or inspired by Stephen King and Lin-Manuel Miranda will take the stage in Mt. Adams. 

The different sides of marriage, romance, and parenting are explored in Sooner/Later, now open at Cincinnati's Playhouse in the Park

Actor Frank Ferrante has created an indelible, and career-defining, performance as the comedy icon Groucho Marx. 

Michael Doucett

For me, it was watching the Marx Brothers' crazy football game in "Horsefeathers" as a young teenager that made me a fan of Groucho for life.

For "An Evening with Groucho" star Frank Ferrante, their anarchist irreverent humor in "A Day At The Races" inspired his career choice.

The late, great Groucho Marx comes to life in the Playhouse in the Park Shelterhouse Theatre as if he was at the height of his movie career in the 1930s, between roles in "Animal Crackers," "Duck Soup," "A Night At The Opera" or "A Day At The Races."

Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park is preparing for the 2017-18 season, which will kick-off with a stage adaptation of the award-winning film, Shakespeare in Love, starting September 2.

Lights! Cameras! Auction! Yes, I've used that line before, but not for 50 straight years…. which is what WCET-TV is celebrating with its 50th annual "Action Auction" Tuesday April 25 through Saturday April 29.

Yes, it's old school fund-raising. It's also fun to watch because you can get some great deals on wine, art, pottery, hotels, restaurants, Reds tickets and all kinds of stuff while supporting public television.

All the Roads Home is the latest production in the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park Thompson Shelterhouse Theatre. 

Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park will be getting a new home. Artistic Director Blake Robison says it will still be in Eden Park though. The existing theater will be torn down and replaced.
