by BWW News Desk - Jul 25, 2016

 Kitchen Theatre Company's 2016-17 season marks the start of the theater's second quarter century. From the world premiere of Wendy Dann's Birds of East Africa to the hilarious encore production of Precious Nonsense, it promises to be one to remember. Darian Dauchan's Death Boogie showcases his mastery of multi-character solo work, accompanied by live musicians on bass and violin. It is a hip hop musical that is part performance, part concert and all Darian. Clean Alternatives by Brian Dykstra was ahead of the curve when first produced, with its focus on the environment and our shared responsibility to ensure a sustainable planet. Alexander Thomas' Throw Pitchfork is a brilliantly performed solo performance by one of KTC's favorite actors.Sex With Strangers by Laura Eason explores the high-powered, cutthroat world of publishing and two passionate writers' relationship to fame and to each other. Opening the season is the irreverent, buckle-your-seat-belts, Tony-nominated Hand To God by Robert Askins. (more...)

Lewis Black's ONE SLIGHT HITCH Coming to The Human Race Theatre, TodayLewis Black's ONE SLIGHT HITCH Coming to The Human Race Theatre, Today
by BWW News Desk - Apr 7, 2016

Spring has sprung and while love is in the air at The Human Race, April showers loom for the characters of the theatre company's latest production, One Slight Hitch. Life in suburban Cincinnati is good for Doc and Delia Coleman on the morning they're about to throw their eldest daughter the perfect wedding they never had, that is until her vagabond exboyfriend arrives on their doorstep and turns their best laid plans into total chaos.

Will their daughter make it down the aisle or will the day end up a perfect disaster? The production at The Human Race's downtown Dayton home at The Loft Theatre is directed by Margarett Perry and features actors Brian Dykstra and Rita Rehn, with Dana Berger, Alex Curtis, Cecily Dowd, Kyle Nunn and Alex Sunderhaus. The preview performance of One Slight Hitch is Thursday, April 7. Opening night is Today, April 8. The production runs through April 24. (more...)
