REVEL, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s annual Spring soirée, supports CSC and the programming we carry out all year long. This year, REVEL celebrates the strength and determination throughout the Company’s Grand Re-Opening Season. Despite the challenges of the past two years, and those certainly still ahead of us, we remain hopeful for a brighter future for Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.

Though we don’t yet know what the future holds, we do know that we will continue to bring Shakespeare and the Classics to life for all. Thank you for supporting our mission through our period of closure. Your philanthropic made (and continues to make) our Grand Re-Opening Season possible – and safe for everyone.

Tonight we celebrate all we have accomplished!

One of the single most cherished stories of all time returns to the CSC stage in a fresh and funky new adaptation which critics are calling “delightfully different,” “fizzy and festive,” and “unlike any adaptation of Jane Austen one has seen before.” Sweepingly romantic, with a good dose of the tongue-in-cheek, Pride and Prejudice follows the love stories of the Bennet sisters, as they find that the path to true love can lead to the most unexpected of places.
