If Charles Sidney August Fuhrmann were a spice, he’d no doubt be Tabasco. This turn-of-the-century Renaissance man seasoned the life of Covington with drama, movies, semi-pro baseball, art, food and more. Today, The Greater Covington Center’s Fuhrmann Auditorium, named for him, carries on his legacy as the city’s venerable venue for art, speakers and theatre.
Sidney Fuhrmann: Renaissance Man
By: Karen B. Gibbs ~ Inside Northside
Fuhrmann Performing Arts continues its season with a ferocious revival of Tennessee Williams' most passionate play, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF. His personal favorite, the Pulitzer Prize winner explores greed, decay, desire and repression on Mississippi Delta plantation home of the Pollitt family. Everyone has gathered for the birthday of their patriarch, and every one of them knows - except Big Daddy and Big Mama - that this is the last birthday the cancer-stricken Big Daddy will see. Everyone maneuvers to inherit the estate, and Big Daddy's fortune. With its hairpin turns from profound sorrow to chilling rage to wild comedy, CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF is Tennessee Williams at his finest.
