Re: “Rage against the Machine: Mum's the Word

Hey Eddy! Come to a COTU show! I mean, I like Machine Theatre and if you can dig on them like that I'm really excited to see what you would say about my Theatre! In fact, drag out your fiancée for a stage version of Eternal sunshine of the Spotless Mind! It's going on all this and next week! I look forward to any critiques you may have.

Re: “Rage against the Machine: Mum's the Word

One day we will learn that "homegrown" artistic expression is something to celebrate.. always.. whether it personally resonates with us or not. Perhaps you, Eddy, should live someplace void of artistic expression or individual voice.. Or more likely I assume that you would prefer someplace where everyone looks, sounds and feels just like yourself. I celebrate the work of The Machine and so many other individuals, collectives and companies in Charlotte who are fighting tooth and nail to make their voices heard and their work matter. Thank you for your contribution.

Re: “Rage against the Machine: Mum's the Word

I'm a newcomer to Charlotte, and my fiance and I attended a performance of "Mum's The Word". It was abundantly clear the playwright (who I assume is local?) and the actors were performing in front of an audience that was 90% made up their friends and hardcore charlotte theater scenesters.

While the performers were on point, the play, the concept, and the script were absolute trashy dross n' dreck - written by what seems to me to be some youngish prententious butthole who fancies himself a sub-middle class intellectual, who has failed to succeed in the real world. The whole thing was actually quite ridiculous. Huge letdown for our first homegrown performing arts experience in Charlotte. Here's hoping these fappy crutons have enough friends to fill out the rest of the shows.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

I'm sorry that some people are confused as to which theater to go to and how to get there. That shouldn't even be a consideration as part of a critic's article. Apart from being in the same building, these two shows have nothing more in common than the musical score. I've seen the Nutcracker Ballet before in a different city, and once you've seen one, that's about all you need. It's all ballet to the same story. I really enjoyed Clara's Trip because it was so different and creative. Where else in this city can you find a show with that many styles of dance and that many aerial apparatus, not to mention with that small of a cast? All of those dancers are trained on the floor and in the air, and to go out and perform a show like that takes some serious guts. Huge job well done and I hope to come see it again next year and look forward to any other shows!

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

I did think that the party scene was a bit slow in spots, but it was a lot of fun too. I particularly enjoyed the break dancing. Act 2 was amazing! The silks and rings were gorgeous. Many laughs and great acrobatics skills. Everyone I heard talking about it enjoyed it. I think this critic may need to realize that there is more than one type of dance that is entertaining.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

You forgot to mention that Clara's Trip got standing ovations after all three public shows. I have never enjoyed a Nutcracker performance so much in my life as I did Clara's Trip. It was perfect for entertaining a family of diverse interests and a wide range of understanding interpretive arts.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

First I need to say you CANNOT compare this production with the original Nutcracker. This is very different and done in a very artistic and fun way. The party scene was fun but slow, however, from the snow scene on, it was non-stop fast fun. The snow scene was absolutely beautiful. The music was perfect for the performance on the silks. Second half was outrageous fun. Starts off slow with the beautiful fish act on the rings and speeds up with the hilarious money and the beautiful flower girls. Ton's of laughs with the candy cane act. This was original and fun. Glad I took the time to come. Hope everyone will experience what I did next year. I was on a high for 3 days thinking about this play. Thank you Caroline Calouche and her team. PS Where else can you see a show like this around here.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

The first 250 words of this review is just a waste of space and the readers time. why does this critic feel he has to comment on the crowd and that 2 nutcrackers are going on at the same time in the same building. I think that is amazing that Charlotte's dance scene is offering such diversity! You have the choice to see a beautiful ballet and then a modernized version of the story.

I chose to see Clara's Trip this weekend and thoroughly appreciated CC&Co. reaching outside the box. Putting hip-hop and break dancing to the classical music to liven up the party scene was so much fun to watch!

Of course people stayed for Act 2 because Act 1 left you wanting more.

I truly hope this critic learns to appreciate what CC&Co. is doing for the dance community of Charlotte.

Re: “Blumenthal becomes a Nutcracker suite

Caroline Calouche & Co.'s Clara's Trip was an amazing breath of fresh air into a traditional ballet that can become very mundane and boring.

Re: “Theater review: The Day They Shot John Lennon

Why does the reviewer suggest that McLure's effort at exploring Lennon's death might be "crassly opportunistic"? It's a playwright's duty to explore the human condition, and what better way than to have various characters gather near the Dakota building in the wake of an American tragedy. Yes, the reviewer's math is way off-the-mark, but so too is his artistic sensibility. Which is probably why he is a critic, and not a creator of art.
