The Formula at Covington's Carnegie Is Working

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 16, 2014
You won’t find cutting-edge material onstage at the Carnegie. The theater’s managing director Joshua Steele has mastered two elements: He collaborates with a wide array of local theater artists and companies, and he produces works that are, by and large, familiar fare.

Under the direction of Brant Russell, the newest member of the drama faculty at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music, Boeing Boeing is fresh and hilarious, a sheer delight.  

More Than the Sum of the Parts

Collaboration is the byword for many arts organizations today, especially theaters where financial support is tough to obtain and ticket revenues are seldom enough to support the cost of productions. By working together, economies can be achieved and, in some cases, multiple constituencies can be activated.

Joshua Steele is the right elf for the job

I discovered David Sedaris via a wickedly funny monologue on NPR about working as an elf at Macy's in New York City. When 'The Santaland Diaries' became a theater piece a decade ago, I was entertained, especially if a good actor took it on.

Cotton Patch Gospel (Review)

Showboat's 'cornpone congregation' blooms with fine voices

0 Comments · Thursday, July 15, 2010
'Cotton Patch Gospel' is based on a 1971 retelling of the Gospel of Matthew by Clarence Jordan, with music by singer-songwriter Harry Chapin written just before his death in a car accident in 1981. Excellent singing by the 10 cast members sustains the two-act revival meeting from start to finish with updated versions of familiar Bible parables. Joshua Steele shows off his fine voice and acting talents as Jesus, and Max Chernin is Matthew, the show's affable narrator.

2 Comments · Wednesday, June 3, 2009
At The Carnegie, director Greg Procaccino, producer Joshua Steele and music director Alan Patrick Kenny have devised a 'Secret Garden' that's good looking and difficult listening. Leading performances are fetching, especially Ty Yadzinski as a dour, bedeviled widower and Charity Farrell as the cheeky then cheerful orphan who discovers the locked garden and transforms it into a colorful, healing retreat.
