You still have time to see THE DROWNING GIRLS,a remount of a production done last year by Clifton Players at Liberty Exhibition Hall between now and Monday. This three-woman show features the stories of three dead women, killed by their husband, told in an inventive, creative way.
Director Bridget Leak stages the show with panache, allowing her cast to fully embody multiple characters throughout the 75 minute run. Mindy Heithaus, who brings gravitas to every role she plays, acts alongside Eileen Earnest, who is underutilized on Cincinnati stages, as her dramatic chops match her comic wit. Finally, Carol Brammer anchors the show with strong presence and maturity.
The production takes place in the basement of the Hall, which is an old Vaudeville theater. In fact, the run of the show is a fundraiser for said theatre, which also features a more traditional stage upstairs. I’m looking forward to seeing more plays produced in the space.
