Come and learn more about the world premiere of Cincinnati King, which the Playhouse has been developing for six years. Blake Robison, the Artistic Director at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, said this about the play in an interview with the Cincinnati Business Courier, “When I first got to Cincinnati, we commissioned my colleague, KJ Sanchez, associate artist at the Playhouse, to create a play about the King Records story. It is a play with music, and the music is drawn directly from the King Records catalog. It tells the story of King Records, including behind-the-scene stories, (such as) conflicts between Syd Nathan and some of the many musicians who worked there. It deals with local history, music history and the racial history of Cincinnati and the area.” Cincinnati King shines a spotlight on the Queen City’s music roots including such artists as James Brown.
Blake Robison has 25+ years of theater experience; he has been the Artistic Director at the Playhouse since 2012. Blake worked on Broadway and at theaters across the United States. He has directed internationally in Germany, Austria and France. Blake grew up in the small, New England college town of Middlebury, Vermont, where he did plays in his garage and played every sport available to him. He lives with his wife and two children in Mount Lookout.
