On Stage

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.

Encore Presentation!

We’re so excited to announce that To Be Black, our collaborative production with Cincinnati Black Theatre Artist Collective, is getting an encore presentation! If you missed it the first time or even if you want to see it again, this is your chance! The encore streaming dates are June 11-27 and tickets are available now through the ticket link below.

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.

Falcon’s 2021-2022 Season Announced!

After one pandemic-shortened season and another of successful theater-for-film projects, Falcon Theatre Artistic Director Ted Weil has announced the slate of plays for the theater’s return to the live stage for its 2021-2022 season. The lineup offers a range of dramatic genres and styles. The order and time slots for the season, along with one additional title, will be determined in the upcoming weeks. 

Spunk
By Zora Neale Hurston
Adapted for stage by George C. Wolfe
Hurston’s evocative prose and Wolfe’s unique theatrical style blend to create an evening of theater that celebrates the human spirit’s ability to overcome and endure. The story glows with wit, humor, and energy and resonates with soulful music. These three tales of survival are told in the key of the blues. 

Red Speedo
By Lucas Hnath
Ray has swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll land a marketing deal with Speedo…a deal that means he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to quash a maelstrom of rumors…or risk losing everything. Red Speedo is a sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.

Well
By Lisa Kron
“This play is not about my mother and me,” begins the character of Lisa. But, of course, it is about her mother, and her mother’s extraordinary ability to heal a changing neighborhood, despite her inability to heal herself. In this “solo show with people in it,” the playwright asks the provocative question: “Do we create our own illness?” The answers become highly complicated as the play spins dangerously out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory.

Silent Sky
By Lauren Gunderson
This true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, a time when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

TBA
One more show to be announced.

2020-2021 Season:


Daisy
by Sean Devine

October 30 – November 7, 2020
(Online Video Streaming Production)
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.

The Agitators
by Mat Smart

March 12-20, 2021

A riveting story about the friendship that persisted through the years between Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass as both fought tirelessly for the rights of others.  The play struggles with the question “Do you believe there can be a country for all?”

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!

Check out our One Word Project video!  We asked our fans to describe Falcon Theater in one word…here’s what we were able to build from the responses: 


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.
