Just like the economy, Cincinnati's theater scene runs in cycles. Ten years ago, summer was full of theater choices: UC's College-Conservatory of Music entertained us with new or seldom-seen shows at Hot Summer Nights and the Cincinnati Playhouse offered interesting fare. Those series dried up for budgetary reasons about five years ago, but suddenly summer theater has burst forth again. Last weekend, we had four new productions to choose from in addition to New Stage Collective's "Jerry Springer: The Opera," which opened in late June, and Commonwealth Theatre Company at NKU, where a dinner-theater production of "Forever Plaid" wraps up on Sunday.
