Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati: Review

The girlfriend and I took in a show at the Ensemble Theatre on Friday. Now I've been to a couple of theatres in NYC (both Broadway and off-Broadway)...I've also been to multiple shows at the Aronoff and other various venues (ie CCM). With that said I must say that this was one of my favorite venues.

The ETC offers a fantastic view from every seat (about 200 or so by my guestimations), and also has surprisingly good acoustics for that space. What makes the venue even better is the building is a gem and has all sorts of architectural details for you to enjoy (if you're in to that sort of thing).

As for the show we saw 'Rabbit Hole' which is the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Best New Play and a Tony Award-winning drama. The show was great and the seats were the end the audience gave a standing ovation for the great performance. The ETC is a great theatre that has a strong history and is nationally known.

I highly recommend a visit to the ETC. It is a good alternative to the movies and the show lets out with plenty of time to go out drinking afterwards. The ETC offers student discounts, as well as, senior discounts. You can now also buy tickets online...and if you want to see 'Rabbit Hole' then you better hurry because its time runs up this Sunday.

In Rabbit Hole: Do you think the wife erased the tape on purpose? After all, she knew he was watching it.

I didn't think so...I just thought it was another instance where the unfortunate situation (death of their son) was testing their relationship and marriage.

We went there a while back to see Moonlight and Magnolias. It was really good and we'd definitely be back except we were out of the country for a year and came back with a kid. It's kind of hard to go out to a play on a whim now.
