Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative (CPI) is a grassroots, non-profit arts organization of Tri-State playwrights, directors, actors, and theater supporters dedicated to developing new plays written by local playwrights. CPI strives to provide a forum for playwrights to explore the possibilities contained within their work by providing a community of playwrights within which individual initiative can seek its fullest expression.  


"Soldier Stories”

by Fred Rothzeid

From 1963-73, the US military created a kind of in-house USO: troupes of performers toured installations entertaining their fellow troops. Fred Rothzeid's new musical, The Soldier Show, is a fictionalized representation of one of those companies. The Solder Show will have its staged reading at the Aronoff Center's Jarson Kaplan Theater on Tuesday, May 1 at 7:30 p. m. Tickets: $8 at CincinnatiArts.org, or (513) 621-2787 or at the door.
