Seeing Through Spirit Photography

Playhouse Perspectives | Monday, Feb. 13, at 7:00 p.m.

Explore the mysterious and deceitful world of spirit photography with guest lecturer Dr. Theresa Leininger-Miller. The University of Cincinnati art history professor appears as part of our Playhouse Perspectives series to help audiences delve into the world of William H. Mumler and his contemporaries, who manipulated photo negatives to create false images of subjects with their deceased loved ones.

Join us to learn how this process became a phenomenon that swept the United States in the late 19th century as a reaction to the Civil War. This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so reserve your spot now through the Playhouse Box Office at 513-421-3888. The Playhouse Perspectives series is supported by a generous grant from Roderick and Barbara Barr.


Jane Eyre Book Club

March 6 and April 3, 2017, at 7 p.m. at Joseph-Beth Booksellers' Rookwood location

This season, in partnership with Joseph-Beth Booksellers, the Playhouse is launching a book club for audience members interested in better understanding the process of adapting a book from the page to the stage. Playhouse book club participants are invited to attend special discussion events. We’ll talk about the book itself: the plot and characters, the overarching themes, how you might imagine it translates to a theatrical setting and even the challenges you see in adapting the story. Discussions that take place after you’ve seen the play focus on what excited and surprised you and how members of the artistic team approached the show.

Books can be purchased or ordered through Joseph-Beth. Discussion events are free, but registration is required in advance through the Playhouse Box Office at 513-421-3888.
