Welcome!

Since 1989, Falcon has been an integral part of Greater Cincinnati's thriving theater community. We welcome you to that long and exciting tradition.

Falcon has always been dedicated to both our artists and our audience as the relationship between the two is what makes live theater such an exceptional art. The creation of a play takes collaboration between actors, directors, designers, and a host of talented people. But it is the union of our finished piece with the emotional and intellectual response of you, our audience, that creates a performance.

Welcome to Falcon! Thank you for visiting our website and for participating in this unique experience.

In the Heat of the Night is On Sale Now

HeatThumbnailIt’s 1962. A hot August night lies heavy over the small town of Argo, Alabama. A dead white man is discovered and the local police arrest a black stranger named Virgil Tibbs. The police discover that their prime suspect is in fact a homicide detective from California. As it happens, Tibbs becomes the racially-tense community’s single hope in solving a brutal murder that is turning up no witnesses, no motives, and no clues.

We’re excited that Derek Snow, who was last seen in 2013’s Duck Hunter Shoots Angel, returns to Falcon to portray Tibbs and Mike Hall, last seen in The 39 Steps, will portray Gillespie.  Rounding out the cast is a group of Falcon veterans and talented new faces to the Falcon stage.  We can’t wait for you to see this important show that is far more relevant today than we even imagined when we picked the show a year ago.

“The play is taut and startlingly resonant, even as it deals with events taking place nearly 50 years ago. Pelfrey’s work is economical and uncompromising…suspenseful, thrilling, and stunningly theatrical.” – Nytheatre.com

Directed by Ed Cohen

Cast:

Tibbs – Derek Snow
Gillespie – Michael Hall
Sam – Simon Powell
Pete – Dan Maloney
Melanie – Dee Anne Bryll
Noreen – Allison Evans

Twain By The Tale – A Huge Success

On January 16th, Falcon Take Flight again had the opportunity to perform at the Campbell County Public Library as part of their Signature Series.  Twain By The Tale is a collection of letters, writings and stories by Mark Twain and they were met with incredible enthusiasm.  We played to a sold out crowd of around 300 people one night at the Newport Branch of the library.

Falcon Takes Flight has performed each of the last 3 years as part of the library’s Signature Series and we’re so grateful to the staff and patrons of the library to continue to be invited back.  We’re already looking forward to 2016!

The Woman in Black is a huge hit!

IMG_0111-X2The reviews are in…Don’t miss The Woman In Black!

“This is a spooky, layered, labyrinthine story…Benson and Dentino do a good job of telling the story while portraying multiple characters with different dialects.” — League of Cincinnati Theaters

“[The Woman in Black is.. all wonderfully restrained. Nothing is overstated. Nothing is exaggerated simply to elicit a response.” — David Lyman, Cincinnati Enquirer

“Devilish Fun” — Kirk Sheppard, The Sappy Critic.
The Woman in Black is a classic ghost story with modern roots.  Currently the longest-running show in the West End, it’s a little bit noir, a little bit ghost story, and we are proud to bring it to the Falcon Theater stage.

Set in a theater, a stranger enters and employes the theater owner to help him tell his story. As he relates the tale, we are drawn into a world of mystery and haunting that has held thousands of audiences on the edge of their seats.
