Cincinnati Shakespeare Company: Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night
Nov. 16 – Dec. 8
What do you get when you combine a shipwreck, a cross-dressed Lady, a lovelorn Lord, a fickle Countess, a drunken uncle, a flamboyant fop, an uptight servant, a mischievous clown, a protective pirate and an identical twin? You get the kind of delightfully and deliciously twisted knot that only Shakespeare can untie. CSC invites you to celebrate the holiday season with one of the Bard’s most lively, lovely and lyrical comedies Twelfth Night

98 Degrees At Christmas

Last year, the quartet -- Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons -- released their first full-length Christmas album in 18 years, Let It Snow, via UMe to glowing reviews from both fans and critics alike. The album featured the group’s signature R& B-tinged, four-part harmonies and was a natural follow up to their 1999 multi-platinum selling This Christmas. Along with beloved standards like ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’, ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!’, and ‘Please Come Home For Christmas’, the 12-song collection includes their take on ‘What Christmas Means To Me’.
