CEA Tip: See ’Em Before You Vote

1 Comment · Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Voting for (and the traditional griping over) this year’s Cincinnati Entertainment Awards is off to a fast and furious start in just the first week since the ballot was opened online at www.citybeat.com. If you haven’t voted yet, you have a few weeks to go — the voting will be closed at noon on Nov. 11. Since you have a little time, why not make your vote really count and hit the local club scene over the next couple of weeks to watch and listen to the nominees, several of whom have local performances scheduled?  

And the Award Goes to …

In my Sept. 1, 2010, column I recalled a plea I had made earlier in the year to create “a stronger, singular program,” and I described how this combined effort would lead to “a program with a promising future while combining the best features of each program under the Acclaim banner.” Well, as they say, not so fast.

The Best of Cincinnati's 2010-2011 Theater Season

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 13, 2011
What follows is my own personal “Best of Cincinnati Theater” for the 2010-2011 season. In roughly chronological order, I’ve ranged across nine producing organizations and identified a dozen or so outstanding shows. Along the way I touch on several others worth seeing. My purpose is to offer a reminder that excellent theater can happen on every stage in town.

The Acclaim Awards merged both the Cincinnati Enquirer's program of the same name and CityBeat's Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. The merger has had a rough life and after some turmoil changes are in the works.

John Von Ohlen (2005)

'The Baron' gets his due

2 Comments · Monday, November 2, 2009
At the age of 14, three years before he ever sat behind a kit or held a drumstick in his hand, John Von Ohlen became a drummer. He'd already been playing classical piano for a decade and trombone for half that long when he attended a Stan Kenton concert at some forgotten ballroom in his Indianapolis hometown in 1955 and witnessed the fluid brilliance of Kenton's gifted skinsman Mel Lewis. The event transformed him.  

Thanks for the Giving

During a week when we count our blessings, I want to mention several things I'm grateful for, starting with Mrs. Mary Price, a high school English teacher who pulled me out of a study hall in 1963 and urged me to audition for a play she was directing. I've been in love with theater ever since. I'm grateful to CityBeat for supporting my support for local theater, and I'm grateful to all the fine theaters in Greater Cincinnati that provide a remarkable variety of choice.  

And the Winners Are …

On Nov. 21 at Covington's Madison Theater, Cincinnati Entertainment Awards were presented in 19 categories. An even mix of previous CEA victors (Freekbass, Dallas Moore Band, Ricky Nye) and first-time nominees (I Am the Messenger, Mad Anthony, Pop Empire), winners received the trademark CEA "trophy," a groovy hand-painted faux-"Gold Record" plaque.
