Re: “Girls will be boys in The Androgynous Model

So will there be a show or what? Only information I got from this is Nov 16 on corner of Trade and Tryon. What time? What venue? Is it outside? What's the cover?

Re: “Girls will be boys in The Androgynous Model

I'm not a politically correct white guy (use of label for effect), but I hope we are only labeling this "style" and not the beautiful ladies who make this a fashion choice.
The look is great !

Re: “Girls will be boys in The Androgynous Model

I really enjoyed watching this presentation of a great movement. The ladies were interesting and I feel that once they are tuned up it's going to be on. I love fashion as well as makeup and I have had lots of experience with both. In 1990 I was hired to travel to Europe to take over as an wardrobe Assistant for Scalia for the large cast of Westside Story. I was hired to handle all costumes for the cast each and every night. I went to Switzerland, Germany, London, Paris and Vienna.

Re: “Macbeth: West Side Scotland

This "rag" and its critic have done more to sustain and promote theater in Charlotte and surrounding areas than any other single force in the city -- including the MTA (no insult intended). His opinions are his own, but his expertise is usually well-honed and on the mark. If one's skin is too thin to have their mediocrity pointed out, maybe they shouldn't submit the paying public to their mediocrity. And friends of the artists are doing their pals no favors by attacking the messenger, because maybe the criticisms need to be heard for your affronted artists to grow. But CL and Perry deserve your respect, even if you disagree with his opinions. Perry sees everything he can, stuff no one else covering the arts in this area would ever take in. He goes in hoping to be wowed, with an open mind to any -- and I mean ANY -- half-baked off-kilter take on any genre of show. Maybe your show didn't get where it wanted to go. Maybe an actor had a bad show. Maybe the concept was rushed and ill-conceived. Maybe not. Perry just writes what he sees. Maybe he saw what you didn't want him to. Just say thank you for the support and do better. And smile a little. Everyone gets a bad review.

Re: “Fringe takes over three Charlotte neighborhoods

Calling this a 'Fringe Theater and New Play Festival" is well, a joke. How about a "handful of previously performed in town plays and several dozen people that are brave enough to call themselves comedians Festival? Awful and embarassing when compared to actual, real and legit Fringe Festivals.

Re: “Theater review: Recent Tragic Events

Great show. Glad to see some new blood onstage. Next step: Now retire that old red Leather Couch. Its been in way too many CAST productions.

Re: “In the streets: Brass Connection

I feel that they are not loyal people. I know for a fact that the steal others intruments and either play them or sell them. They break into people's cars and damage their personal belongings. They have been doing this for a while and this is not fair to those who use their instruments for good purposes. They should not have the privilage to play down town at all. They sound horrible and they are getting people's money instead of making an honest living. I know that once of the members has been arrested twice. They should not be downtown at anytime playing anything. Its sad to know that people work everyday and for those to steal them and play like they are innocent. I agree with the individual who wrote the review above. We can do with out them. They have this ignorant attitude like they are band members of Earth Wind and Fire or apart of the Gap band or something. They need a permit to be on these streets or something. They are terrible. And the band mangaer has many Alias.. whoa... smh.. too shady to post his real name. We all know who he is. oh well.. you have the man to answer to on judgement day for your actions.****PLEASE WATCH YOUR CARS*****

Re: “Macbeth: West Side Scotland

Haven't seen this one, BUT - For anyone who has been a part of one, yes - Macbeth is an extraordinarily difficult production to put up, that's truth # 1. Truth # 2 : I've been reading this shitrag since 1990, and I can tell you: this critic has NEVER liked any true, faithful version of the Scottish play presented in Charlotte. I think he liked the thumb puppet one. No mention of the fight choreography, either? Odd, given the content of the play.

Re: “Macbeth: West Side Scotland

It's been my experience with Collaborative Arts/Charlotte Shakespeare is that they always nail the Comedies, and they are quite good, if not top-notch productions. The tragedies they put up are, well.. Weak. Uninspired, lackluster, shortsighted, a tad arrogant - and presented without any introspection or wonder whatsoever. They always seem to have a fine group onstage, but when it comes to the heavier stuff - Wilkinson just doesn't bring the goods.

Re: “Macbeth: West Side Scotland

I'm sorry Mr. Tannenbaum, I dont know what play you watched but I have to respectfully disagree with your comment about certain aspects of Macbeth. While I agree with alot of what you said about the overall production I have to disagree with your views on Mr. Casper as Macbeth. It's obvious you have had no formal actor training or Shakespearean training. Mr. Casper's take on the Scottish king was original, unpredictable and full of humanity. His and Gretchin Mcgintys performance were the sole stand outs of the entire evening. Just because and actor screams his lines doesn't mean it's filled with emotion. Take an acting class and you might learn this.

Re: “No one has a ball at I Love Lucy

Once again, the comments from Charlotteans show the lack of cultural maturity in this city as they watch the travelling drivel instead of embracing the local genius of native Charlotte Theatre. Carry on Perry!!!

Re: “No one has a ball at I Love Lucy

Whoever wrote this review doesn't know his Lucy. Lucille Ball did not have a "husky"voice when she filmed I Love Lucy. It was only in her later years that her voice changed from smoking. If you are a Lucy fan you will love the show.

Re: “No one has a ball at I Love Lucy

Dear Donna Flagg Walton: Perry wasn't the only one to hate the show. I found it to be a heinous piece of pandering drivel; the lowest common denominator of 'entertainment'. I wonder, Donna, what was the last piece of local theater you've seen, and did you support it and laud it as much as this traveling piece of 'let's make money' stage decoration? I'm not always in agreement with Perry, but this time he's spot on.

Re: “No one has a ball at I Love Lucy

Dear Mr. Tannenbaum,
After reading the audience reviews on the "I Love Lucy Live on Stage" Facebook and the thousands of glowing reviews on TicketMaster, it seems the ONLY one that "Didn't have a Ball" at this show WAS YOU! The producers and writers clearly did their research on what fans of the 1950s and the old "I Love Lucy" show want to enjoy... and enjoy it they did!

What Charlotte theater-goers are saying about "I Love Lucy® Live On Stage!"

"The show was FANTASTIC! It was like watching the real show being taped back in the 50's."

"I laughed the entire time. If I closed my eyes I would've thought I was watching I Love Lucy."

"My husband and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! It couldn't have been better!"

"Had such a blast tonight. We really felt like we were at the I Love Lucy show and Desilou playhouse. BEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR!"

...and so on, and so on.
