REVIEW: Beware Of Missing Out on 'Julius Caesar' at Cincy Shakes - League of Cincinnati Theatres (

"From the moment Barry Mulholland enters, there is an obvious shift. In addition to being a force of nature all on his own, Mr. Mulholland displays palpable chemistry with each person who shares a scene with him. He embodies all that is Caesar and the audience is just lucky to be along for the ride."

Let the Right One In

By Jack Thorne

Based on the novel and film by John Ajvide Lindqvist

October 19 - 28, 2023

Performances take place at Patricia Corbett Theater, CCM Village
University of Cincinnati


An enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story adapted from the bestselling novel and award-winning film. Oskar is a bullied, lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town when a series of sinister killings rock the neighborhood. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time.

The 2023/2024 season may still be months away, but theatres are starting to announce their seasons, and things are beginning to come together. What's lined up so far:  two shows at Cincinnati Shakespeare (winter/spring): Julius Caesar and Much Ado About Nothing, A third show in the works for the fall if things fall into place. Stay tuned!

A little bit of "Clue," a little bit of "Knives Out," and a lot of fun.

Come check us out at The Human Race Theatre.

JUNE 2020


Well, the theatres are still closed and the world is on hold, so I'm shootin' some hoops, and doing a LOT of reading (and a lot of pushups).

Mask up everyone, so we can get back to work -- and stay safe!

MARCH 2020

Just underway with rehearsals for Hamlet at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, to be followed by back-to-back-to-back productions of Lauren Gunderson's gorgeous piece The Book Of Will, then Born Yesterday, and the stage adaptation of the classic Paddy Chayevsky film Network. The cherry on top of this magnificent season comes next spring, with the title role in Mike Bartlett's Charles III.


It promises to be a year to remember.
