The past year has been incredibly challenging for arts organizations and especially theaters. But as has always been the case, the arts endure, adapt and thrive. We’re continually monitoring the changing landscape of public safety and mandates so that we can not only welcome you back to our space soon, but safely.
Falcon Theatre is proud to bring Cincinnati Black Theatre Artist Collective to their space to produce this virtual theatrical event. Cincy BlackTAC is excited to expand their work to focus on new voices. In their successful 2020 summer weekly series, Monologues For Us By Us, they featured the work of August Wilson and his contemporaries. In this new collaboration, they will continue to showcase the stories of Black life in the most varied and multi-faceted way; promoting the awareness that the Black experience is not monolithic. Under the direction of Piper N. Davis and Candice Handy, local playwrights have their work brought to life by some of Cincinnati’s favorite faces, including Burgess Byrd, Geoffrey Barnes and Ernaisja Curry. Featured playwrights include Derek J. Snow, Cris Eli Blak, A.J. Baldwin, Arethia Hornsby Rinfrow, and Curtis Shepard.
We’re excited to announce the latest adaptation to our 2020-2021 season schedule.
Tickets are now on sale for the streaming presentation of The Agitators! Falcon was only a few days away from opening this powerful show when Covid closed our doors. We’re excited to finally give life to this amazing script and tell the story of Frederick and Susan.

Based on true events, Daisy explores the moment in television history that launched the age of negative advertising, and forever changed how we elect our leaders. War was the objective. Peace was the bait. Everyone got duped.
Our doors may be closed, but we at Falcon Theatre have been hard at work, planning for a day in the not-too-distant future when we welcome back our friends and family to the theater. In the interim period, we have produced some online content (with more to follow) for the public’s enjoyment.
As you know, social distancing requirements and other restrictions have been detrimental to the livelihood of many businesses; this is especially true for arts organizations like Falcon that typically rely on audience gatherings for survival.
Many of our patrons have asked how they can help Falcon weather this unanticipated storm. A great way to do just that is to purchase a Falcon Theatre Flex Pass. You’ll provide Falcon with some much-needed income, and you’ll also have your tickets ready for next season when our doors open. Flex Passes purchased now will remain valid for the entire 2020-2021 season.
Flex passes are on sale now and can be purchased online
Auditions will be starting for our upcoming season soon. Stay tuned for details!

Huge thank you to Pretty Lights and Odesza for letting us use their awesome music to underscore this video and to Jordan Schoster for his mad video and creative skills to come up with this piece.
