Since 1997, CityBeat has sponsored local theater recognition through the annual Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. The 14th annual event is Sunday evening at Know Theatre (1120 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine); doors open at 6 p.m., program is at 7 p.m. It also happens to be the last CEAs for theater.—-
With the advent of the 2010-2011 season, we are combining forces with the Acclaim Awards for a stronger and more cohesive program of recognition that will preserve elements of the CEAs (such as public voting for favorite performers) as well as supporting the Acclaims' efforts at outreach and providing Equity performers for various theater companies.
So Sunday evening will be a final chance to celebrate a long-running collection of awards that have helped spread the word about our great local theater community. Find out who Cincinnati theater fans voted as their favorite performers and which productions were picked by the critics as the year's best.
The evening is free (cash bar) and folks from many theater companies will be there to mix, mingle and congratulate one another. I hope you'll be among them.
