Located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati’s “Backstage” district, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company presents classics as well as rarities. The company is unique to the city’s performing arts community in employing a resident ensemble, whose members work with artistic director Brian Isaac Phillips to “crack the nut” of each play and reveal its human elements. Recent productions have included Shakespeare’s Othello, The Taming of the Shrewand All’s Well That Ends Well, Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband, Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit, James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter, and the U.S. premiere of David French’s new adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie.
