Know Theatre of Cincinnati
Cincy Fringe Announcement Party!
Wednesday, April 18th at 6:30 pm 
 
Maybe it's just us, but the recent weather has really got us anxious for May 29th to roll around and for the 2012 Cincinnati Fringe Festival to officially kick off. Shorts and Fringe t-shirts, sweat and theatre. Doesn't that sound wonderful? Well, fear not, because you won't have to wait the full two months to get a delicious dose of Fringe-tastic entertainment!

 

On Wednesday, April 18th, Know Theatre will host the 2012 Cincy Fringe Announcement Party! You'll not only have an opportunity to eat, drink, be merry, and peruse this year's amazing line-up, but will also have a chance to catch a performance of 2008 Fringe Veteran Torie Wiggin's Your Negro Tour Guide

 

While the announcement portion of the evening is free and open to the public, you'll need a ticket for entry into the special performance- so grab them soon!   

Based on the writings of award-winning columnist and commentator Kathy Y. Wilson, Your Negro Tour Guide is a provocative, solo performance piece on identity in modern America. Through scathing and thoughtful rants, letters, music and nightmares, actress Torie Wiggins steers us through the modern American landscape of race, gender, and class. 

 

 

 


Happy Fringing and see you all at the announcement party! 
 
You'll have until April 18th to purchase the Full Frontal pass at the early bird price of $175!

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson


Tickets are going quickly foour production of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson had several sellout performances last weekend. We strongly recommend making your reservation in advance! 

 

"The show has a rabid, tongue-in-cheek tone from its opening moment (the rabble-rousing "Populism Yea Yea") to the concluding number (a bouncy, raucous "Hunters of Kentucky")... The show is a youthful mix of political commentary, driving Rock performances, history, humor and sober observations on the will of the people - just what we expect from Know Theatre. This is the show's first professional regional production, and it will surely be the big hit of Know's season." Cincinnati CityBeat Critic's Pick

"Know Theatre supplies an excellent staging of the show. Director Eric Vosmeier provides a consistent tone, effective blocking and transitions, and enhances the humor of the piece. The scenic and lighting design by Andrew Hungerford is likewise strong... Know Theatre of Cincinnati provides a praiseworthy production in part due to its extremely talented cast and solid creative staff." Talkin' Broadway review
