Carnegie's "Sound of Music" Earns 4-Star Rating from League of Cincinnati Theaters

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized The Carnegie Theatre’s production of Rogers and Hammerstein’s classic musical, The Sound of Music, with a 4 Star Rating.

The Carnegie is producing the lightly staged show in conjunction with the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra.

Panelists praised The Sound of Music as “a nostalgic production that was well-executed and beautiful…a fantastic, heart-warming production, with a seriously talented cast.” Jared Joplin, as Captain Von Trapp, was particularly singled out for his outstanding performance — “his journey in the midst of an attack on his culture was marked by careful line delivery and a bold, romantic transformation…he was charming, moving, and brought a lot of sensitivity to the character.”

The Sound of Music continues through January 26th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.thecarnegie.com.

League of Cincinnati Theatre panelists evaluate productions on a 5 star scale and recommend shows at either a 4 star or 5 star level. Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT gala in the spring.

The League of Cincinnati Theatres was founded in 1999 to strengthen, nurture and promote Cincinnati’s theatre community. LCT provides its member companies and individual members with education, resources and services to enhance the quality and exposure of the theatre community in Cincinnati and increase community awareness, attendance and involvement.
