CINCINNATI, June 14, 2014— Cincinnati Shakespeare has just announced added performances of their critically acclaimed hit production of Noel Coward’s’ “Private Lives”. After several sold out performances, Cincinnati Shakespeare decided to add matinee performances on Saturdays June 21 and 28 at 2pm to meet the increasing demand. Audiences are encouraged to secure their tickets now for this sparkling comedy before it’s too late!

The Cincinnati Enquirer called this production of Private Lives “…smart, literate, funny…” and a “…powerful combination of acting, directing and script.” CityBeat also said Private Lives is a “witty bon mot of a comedy” and is “…fun from start to finish.” The League of Cincinnati Theatres also honored the production with a 4-star rating calling it “a fun romantic farce… laugh-out-loud production.” Audiences have also been raving this production, taking to social media with comments such as @BenDougherty: “…this is a must see performance!!” and @Kiernan_Fire: “…go see Private Lives…I embarrassed myself laughing.”

Private Lives is directed by D. Lynn Meyers and features four longtime Cincinnati Shakespeare audience favorites Kelly Mengelkoch, Jeremy Dubin, Sara Clark and Brent Vimtrup.
