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.

Mockingbird Opens December 11

Falcon is pleased to announce an exciting addition to our series of Fourth Wall productions!  Mockingbird, by  Julie Jensen, will make its area premier in December and it’s a show you won’t want to miss.

Life has always been a puzzle that Caitlin just can’t seem to put together. No matter how hard she tries to make sense of it, everyone in her life just doesn’t seem to “get it”. As an 11-year-old girl on the autism spectrum, she used to rely on her older brother to help make sense of the world around her, but now that he’s gone, she’s all on her own. Hailed as “extraordinary… [a] moving and insightful masterpiece” by Publishers Weekly, Kathryn Erskine’s 2010 National Book Award–Winning young adult novel has been adapted for the stage by Julie Jensen, a recipient of the Kennedy Center Award for New American Plays. This moving, vibrant, and surprisingly humorous play makes its Greater Cincinnati debut at Falcon Theatre this holiday season!

The Mystery Plays opens Friday, November 6th

The Mystery Plays
by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

The Mystery Plays is two interrelated one acts. In the first play, The Filmmaker’s Mystery, Joe Manning, a director of horror films, survives a terrible train wreck—only to be haunted by the ghost of Nathan West, one of the passengers who didn’t survive. As the police investigate Joe, he investigates Nathan, desperate to understand why he survived and what Nathan’s specter could possible want. In the second play, Ghost Children, Abby Gilly travels to a small town in rural Oregon to make peace with the man who brutally murdered her parents and younger sister sixteen years earlier. The man—the murderer—is her older brother. Like the original medieval mystery plays, The Mystery Plays wrestles with the most profound of human ideas: the mysteries of death, the afterlife, religion, faith, and forgiveness—in a uniquely American way.

SILENCE! The Musical – Opens September 25!

Silence the Musical5_FINALSILENCE! The Musical
Music and Lyrics by Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan
Book by Hunter Bell

This musical parody of The Silence Of The Lambs was a huge hit when it debuted at the New York Fringe Festival and it went on to several successful New York runs.  Now Falcon Theatre brings this outrageous spoof to our area in its regional premiere.  SILENCE! The Musical is hysterical in it’s quest to be completely politically incorrect as it parodies all the characters you loved in the original movie.

NOTE:  This play contains extremely mature language and subject matter and is not appropriate for audience members under the age of 18.

Performance Dates: September 25, 26, October 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 & 10, 2015

Renee Alper

reneeRenee Alper, long time patron of Falcon Theatre, passed away on July 27, 2015.  Renee was one of the most ardent supporters of theater in the Greater Cincinnati area, literally seeing hundreds of productions over the last several years.  Although her health made it a challenge for her to travel, she still visited practically every theater in the area and was unwavering in her support of this art she loved so much.  She was a playwright and actress herself and was a stalwart patron of the arts.  She loved nothing more than seeing shows and discussing predictions with actors and artists…offering insights into everything she saw.  Renee will be greatly missed for her unparalleled support and passion.
