Black Pearl Sings at ETC March 13 – 31

An unlikely and controversial pair unites over their passion for music as Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati continues its 2012-2013 season with the regional premiere of Black Pearl Sings!. Written by Frank Higgins, the play tells the soulful story of a musicologist’s endeavor to preserve traditional spiritual songs and the cultural experiences of an African-American inmate seeking freedom. Inspired by the real-life story of folklorist John Lomax and musician Huddie “Leadbelly” Ledbetter, Black Pearl Sings! plays March 13-31, 2013 and is directed by D. Lynn Meyers. LPK is Premiere Sponsor.

Set during the Great Depression, Susannah, an academic and song collector for the Library of Congress, travels the country, recording lost traditional songs. Hoping to find the one song that will bring her long-awaited recognition, she discovers Pearl Johnson in a Texas prison. With a silky, soulful voice and a wealth of African-American spiritual songs, Pearl seeks information along with a chance at freedom and at finding her lost daughter. The two women soon find themselves walking a delicate line between exposure and exploitation. Featuring beautiful a cappella renditions of African-American folk songs, this moving drama chronicles a powerful story about being a woman in a man’s world, being black in a white world, and fighting for one’s soul in a world where anyone can be a commodity.

“The most important thing to be about Black Pearl Sings! is how friendship can be based on mutual need,” says ETC Producing Artistic Director D. Lynn Meyers. “The show is captured during the Great Depression, a time of great need and great change. Two women from very different backgrounds have to find their paths, not only in how to survive, but also how to succeed and thrive in that time,” she continues. “I love that the script incorporates music into its core and that the music is a cappella. It makes for a really interesting situation.”

Local poets Nick Barrows and Mark Flanigan debut Versus from Aurore Press in OTR

New from Cincinnati's Aurore Press

Aurore Press, the Cincinnati-based publisher best known for the nostalgic book Stories for Shorty: A Collection of Recollections about The Jockey Club 1982-1988 are releasing two independent works of poems entitled Versus featuring Nick Barrows with The Rabbit Punch Defense and Mark Flanigan with Journeyman’s Lament.

Nick Barrows delighted audiences as the bombastic concertina-playing portion of the band Eagle to Squirrel. His words and lyrics, both sensitively self-reflective and raging can only be described as big, booming, and unforgettable. His other works have appeared in Forklift, Ohio: A Journal of Poetry, Cooking, & Light Industrial Safety, Trained Monkey Press, and Semantikon.  He was also the music editor for The Citizen. His musical endeavors include The 4 Track All-Stars and Jack Burton Overdrive. In 2007 he released his first chapbook, Rockets on Bibles.

Mark Flanigan is the introspective writer with the matter-of-fact cadence whose written works have been appreciated locally for years. His words express his battered but not beaten presence. His poetry reflects self-deprecation, and sometimes despair, but never without the light of hope. Mark’s churned out his works for over two decades and his “Exiled” column for 11 years—first in X-Ray Cincinnati, then online at Semantikon, and finally at CityBeat.  A noted performer, critic Mark Sterner once said of Flanigan, “He is a born story teller, and his readings come off with the sheer delight in words and in the quirky sort of life they are capable of expressing… Flanigan’s exultant poetry, heard aloud in the theatre, reminds us of what it is to be alive.” Mark’s free e-book, Minute Poems, is currently available online from Three Fools Press.

Book Release and Reception at MiCA v/12 on November 30, 2012
Versus debuts on November 30 on Final Friday at 7:30 p.m. at MiCA v/12, 1201 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202. A reception to be followed by readings by Nick Barrows and Mark Flanigan. MiCA is a Cincinnati-based, independent business located in historic Over-the-Rhine.

Book Release Party at The Comet December 28, 2012
Versus will make a second debut on December 15 at 9:30 p.m. at The Comet, 4579 Hamilton Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45223. Nick Barrows and Mark Flanigan will again be performing and reading from their book followed by the music of Seven Speed Vortex and Pillowbiter.

Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC), in collaboration with Clifton Performance Theatre, with license from the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) and Broadway Impact, is proud to announce a one-night-only staged reading of 8, a play chronicling the historic trial in the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8. Written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter and AFER Founding Board Member Dustin Lance Black, 8 will be presented at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, , on Monday, December 3 at 8:00 p.m. Directed by Kevin Crowley.

“Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati has a long history of presenting readings that add to and complement our season offerings,” says ETC Producing Artistic Director D. Lynn Meyers. “8 is an excellent script about an important issue, penned by a gifted playwright. As our country moves forward, this is the right time to bring the play to our stage and the most effective way to make that happen now is through this reading,” she concludes.

“Equality Cincinnati welcomes the opportunity provided by Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati and Clifton Performance Theatre to see this play about the Perry v. Schwarzenegger gay marriage case. We look forward to the day that gay marriage is legal in the United States, and this play will be an interesting historical piece,” says local attorney and Equality Cincinnati board member Scott Knox.

8 is an unprecedented account of the Federal District Court trial in Perry v. Schwarzenegger (now Perry v. Brown), the case filed by AFER to overturn Proposition 8, which stripped gay and lesbian Californians of the fundamental freedom to marry. Black, who penned the Academy Award-winning feature film Milk and the film J. Edgar, based 8 on the actual words of the trial transcripts, first-hand observations of the courtroom drama and interviews with the plaintiffs and their families.

“In light of the federal court’s refusal to allow the release of video recordings of the Proposition 8 trial, which sought to deny basic rights for lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans, it is incredibly important that as many people as possible see 8. This show helps uncover the truth about marriage equality and expose the appalling arguments used against it,” explains Council Member Chris Seelbach, who will lead a post-show discussion following the staged reading.

Tickets for the reading are $20 and all proceeds benefit Equality Cincinnati and Human Rights Campaign. For tickets, please contact the Clifton Performance Theatre at or online at www.brownpapertickets.com.


8 had its much-heralded Broadway world premiere on September 19, 2011, at the sold-out Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York City. The production brought in over $1 million to support AFER’s efforts to achieve full federal marriage equality.

8 had its West Coast premiere reading at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre on Saturday, March 3, 2012, in Los Angeles. The West Coast premiere reading of 8 featured an all-star cast led by Golden Globe Award-winner and Academy and Emmy Award-nominee Brad Pitt as United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker; and Academy and Golden Globe Award-winner and Emmy Award-nominee George Clooney and Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner Martin Sheen as Plaintiffs’ lead co-counsel David Boies and Theodore B. Olson. The benefit reading was directed by AFER Founding Board Member Rob Reiner, and raised more than $2 million for the fight to secure full federal marriage equality.

“People need to witness what happened in the Proposition 8 trial, if for no other reason than to see inequality and discrimination unequivocally rejected in a court of law where truth and facts matter,” said AFER Founding Board Member Dustin Lance Black. “The goal of 8 is to show the world that marriage equality is a basic constitutional right. The facts are on our side and truth always finds the light. AFER and Broadway Impact are doing all we can to help speed that process along.”

Throughout 2012, AFER and Broadway Impact are licensing 8 for free to colleges and community theatres nationwide in order to spur action, dialogue and understanding. Most productions will be followed by a talkback where cast and audience members can discuss the issues presented in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial.

The story for 8 is framed by the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, and features the best arguments and testimony from both sides. Scenes include flashbacks to some of the more jaw-dropping moments of trial, such as the admission by the Proposition 8 supporters’ star witness, David Blankenhorn, that “we would be more American on the day we permitted same-sex marriage than we were on the day before.”

On February 7, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a landmark decision upholding the historic August 2010 ruling of the Federal District Court that found Proposition 8 unconstitutional. The Ninth Circuit concluded:

“Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples. The Constitution simply does not allow for laws of this sort.”


The American Foundation for Equal Rights is the sole sponsor of Perry v. Brown, the federal constitutional challenge to California’s Proposition 8. After bringing together Theodore B. Olson and David Boies to lead its legal team, AFER successfully advanced the Perry case through Federal District Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Foundation is committed to achieving full federal marriage equality for all Americans. www.AFER.org


Broadway Impact is the only grassroots organization of the theatre community and its fans mobilized in support of marriage equality. Tony Award-nominees Rory O’Malley (The Book of Mormon) and Gavin Creel (HAIR) and Production Coordinator Jenny Kanelos founded the organization in direct response to the passage of California’s Proposition 8 in November 2008. Currently, Broadway Impact, in partnership with AFER, licenses and coordinates readings of Dustin Lance Black’s 8 at regional, community and university theaters around the world. Broadway Impact was the recipient of the 2009 Human Rights Campaign Community Award and proudly operates under the fiscal sponsorship of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. www.broadwayimpact.com

Alice In Wonderland opens at Ensemble Nov 28th

November 28th - Dec 30th 2012 at Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati

Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati (ETC) presents the return of one of its most cherished holiday musicals Alice in Wonderland, by local playwright Joseph McDonough with music and lyrics by David Kisor, playing November 28 through December 30, 2012. In the tradition of ETC’s “fractured fairytale” holiday productions, Alice in Wonderland is a modern spin on the classic fairytale by Lewis Carroll and features exuberant colorful costumes, and an updated fantastical set design that will delight audiences of all ages. ETC’s sassy version is the toe-tapping tale of a lost girl, a cool cat, a wild hare, and the original “dancing queen.” Moreover, this year’s version features several new songs along with the return of several Cincinnati’s favorite actors reprising their roles for returning and new audiences alike. Directed by D. Lynn Meyers. Premiere Sponsor is Macy’s.

Each season, ETC produces a magical fairy tale musical written with families in mind. As a theatre that also seeks to nurture new audiences, ETC has specifically commissioned these shows that take classic fairy tales and give them a fresh, modern spin with contemporary cultural references to make the shows’ message accessible for the next generation of arts patrons.

Following the success of recent holiday musicals, ETC has expanded its performance schedule to include over 30 chances for audiences to see this popular production. ETC will also offer a convenient show calendar for families with many weekend matinees, early 6:00 pm Sunday evening shows, and 7:00 pm evening shows throughout the holiday season. ETC’s Producing Artistic Director D. Lynn Meyers says, “What’s so great about David and Joe’s fairytale creations is that the lessons are timeless and will always appeal to and engage new audiences, especially all the children who get to explore this revamped Alice in Wonderland for the first time. Alice needs to learn a lesson and each of the show’s characters, as well as the audience, become part of her learning this lesson.”
