After a big burst of theater in February, this weekend is kind of a pause before another surge. Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is concluding its sold-out run of Pride and Prejudice Sunday and Covedale Center for the Performing Arts wraps up Shout! The Mod Musical the same day.
The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park's production of Julia Cho's The Piano Teacher, starring local professional Dale Hodges, concludes its run this weekend, too. It's an interesting memory play (maybe I should call it a "faulty memory" play, since Hodges' character learns that what she recalls might not be exactly what happened) that CityBeat's Harper Lee calls a "stark, engrossing and painful thriller" (read her full review here). The final week of Playhouse shows sometimes have decent ticket availability, so this mind-bending drama might be your best bet. For tickets, call 513-421-3888 or visit the Playhouse's site here.
