Cincinnati Landmark Productions’ I Left My Heart, A Salute to the Music of Tony Bennett
at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts presents a musical
tribute to Bennett, with more than 30 songs made famous by or famously
sung by the legendary crooner.
Falcon Theater’s production of Theresa Rebeck’s 2011
play Seminar opened strong in the
small, charming Monmouth Theatre in Newport, Ky. Rebeck, a Cincinnati native

a novelist, playwright and TV writer.

Theatre Cincinnati opened a revamped version of the delightfully spirited Around The World in 80 Days on Dec. 4 to
a full house. The production is exactly what you would hope for from a
family-friendly holiday show.
