0 Comments · Wednesday, July 7, 2010
For the 14th consecutive year, the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards are waiting in the wings to remind you of the best in local theater. The nominations are out, with public voting open now. Check out all the nominees and theater companies, plus the eight new categories.  

How Much Recognition Is Enough?

3 Comments · Wednesday, May 12, 2010
The Cincinnati Entertainment Awards (CEAs) were established by CityBeat in 1996, using theater critics from all the local media to determine nominees. The Acclaim Awards were created in 2006 and are largely supported by The Cincinnati Enquirer. Our theater scene is excellent for a city this size, but it’s worth asking if competing awards enhance what we have or duplicate recognition.  

Heartless Bastards and J. Dorsey Blues Band

Dec. 26 • Southgate House

0 Comments · Tuesday, December 22, 2009
The Heartless Bastards had fans stacked on top of each other last Christmastime at Northside Tavern (or so legend has it, since I couldn't get in) when they played a free two-night stand. You'll have to pony up some dough this year, but the Bastards will again be home for the holidays (from their current headquarters in Austin) on Saturday.

Herzog Historical Marker a Go

0 Comments · Thursday, November 5, 2009
The historical marker proposed for the former site of Herzog Studios downtown has been approved. Thanks to the hard work of the Cincinnati USA Music Heritage Foundation, the marker will be installed at the site (where Hank Williams recorded trademark tunes like "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry") on Sunday, Nov. 22, the day of the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards.  

Joe McDonough (2005)

Playwright played big played a role in the improvement of local theater scene

0 Comments · Monday, November 2, 2009
You could stand in a check-out line at a grocery story in northwestern Cincinnati behind Joe McDonough and never detect that the guy unloading his cart before you is a playwright whose scripts have been enjoyed by audiences at theaters all over town and beyond. In fact, the self-effacing man who is disinclined to talk about himself at length has been writing plays since 1988. This season he's accomplished something no other local writer has ever managed to do: Two of his scripts will be given their world premieres almost simultaneously by the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati.  

Ed Stern and Buzz Ward (2004)

Playhouse's leadership duo has fostered great theater in Eden Park ... and all over town

0 Comments · Monday, November 2, 2009
A dozen years after Ed Stern's arrival in Cincinnati to take over the creative reins at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, the theater company finally was recognized by the Tony Awards for fostering new plays, building a subscriber base envied by theaters in larger cities and reaching out to several hundred thousand young people annually, the audiences of the future. Stern is quick to deflect praise from himself to those he works with and to the community the Playhouse serves. But he's played a leading role in tandem with Playhouse Executive Director Buzz Ward.   

Big Joe Duskin (2004)

Piano legend proves good things come to those who wait

"Ain't nothing goin' on but the weather, time and old age," Big Joe Duskin is known to say. With all due respect, he's wrong. There's plenty going on for Big Joe these days. One might be tempted to call it a comeback, but in order to "come back" you have to go away, and that certainly doesn't apply to the King of Cincinnati Blues. Besides, he knew about coming back years ago.   

King Records Celebration (2008)

Cincinnati label/studio gets overdue acknowledgement from the music world

0 Comments · Monday, November 2, 2009
It isn't exactly be the sort of historical marker you'd stumble upon while taking a stroll. It's found at the end of a dreary industrial street in Evanston, fixed to a pole in front of a poop-brown abandoned warehouse overlooking cars whizzing by on I-71. But someone who comes upon it next week (or in years to come) will likely do a double-take reading what happened in that crumbling building where King Records became The King of Them All.
