Local Blogger News: Cincy Women Blogger “Breaks a Leg”

Last night I had the opportunity to check out the Falcon Theatre’s production of Hamlet at the Monmouth Street Theater in Newport, KY.  Now you may be asking yourself, Shannan, this is Cincy Women Bloggers, what’s the connection between Hamlet and social media?  Well I’ll tell you… in this case, it’s Julie from WineMeDineMe, who takes on three rolls (that’s right, three rolls!) in the production.

Hamlet has forever been one of my favorite works from Shakespeare so when Julie offered me the opportunity to check out the Falcon Theater’s production, I jumped at the chance.  I first remember reading Hamlet it in college and finding myself fascinated with the love story portion of the play.  I even wrote a paper for a writing class about the relationship between Hamlet and Ophelia.  NOTE:  Ophelia was the name of my very first laptop – a PowerBook 190cs, by Apple (That’s how dorky I am!)

Prior to seeing Hamlet, I’d not seen a production by Falcon Theater. My husband and I have only recently gotten into local theater, and just attended our local theater production few months ago.

Now I am not a theater critic, but as a person who enjoys theater, I would give Falcon Theater’s production of Hamlet two thumbs up and would recommend you check it out. It’s not only a great way to show your support local theater, but it’s a great night out that won’t break your wallet.
