The Ensemble Theatre believes that the arts are an essential and meaningful part of life; therefore, the theatre offers an important forum for stimulating and provoking thought about the issues of contemporary life, and is a place for communal experience. In 2009-2010, the Ensemble presented its 30th anniversary season, which consisted of The Man Who Came to Dinner, The Great White Hope, Jerry’s Girls, and OH Beautiful Ohio. The season was dedicated to the theater’s founder, Lucia Colombi, who died in January 2009; and to Licia Colombi, her twin sister. Beginning in her youth, Lucia Colombi worked for 21 years at Karamu, Cleveland’s oldest racially integrated theater. She also taught and directed at the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland, and was a member of the theater faculty at University School. In 1979, she founded Ensemble Theatre, dedicated to American classics and contemporary, socially relevant plays.
