If we can shovel the snow away from the stage door, there should be several shows to check out this weekend.—-
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company's staging of the rarely produced King John continues and word has it that it's selling well, with lots of combat and period costumes. Here's a little video teaser from Cincy Shakes promoting the production:
I saw the touring production of Burn the Floor on Tuesday evening at the Aronoff Center and there's enough heat from those dancers to melt a lot of the snow that came down on Thursday.
And two openings delayed from Thursday are now set to happen tonight — Neil Simon's nostalgic Brighton Beach Memoirs at Covedale Center for the Performing Arts and Noel Coward's ghostly comedy Blithe Spirit by Footlighters Inc., the community theater company that performs in the Stained Glass Theater in Newport.
After a day of being snowbound, wouldn't a night in the theater be a relief?
