Rachel Jeffries, Ann Lambert, Brianna Smith and Joanna Gerdy were terrific. The rest of the cast were adequate, save for Scott Pacitti who hit his mark and then stood there like a planted tree in an airless desert.
Fairly good script (don't know if Tony material) desperately lacking in strong direction after seeing this production.
And if I realized that Pulitzer-prize winning author Isabel
Wilkerson was giving a lecture in the space next door, I would have headed there after intermission.
Huffle Puffed by Mon Frere will be at The Mill twice in October, while Robot Johnson takes a short break.
To give proper credit, the vibrators were both prop inventions created by Chip Decker. He had that master plan of exactly what he wanted them to look like. Plus, i just think he enjoyed googling "vibrators"...
I don't know how to feel about things?
Good Lord! Just thought I'd take a look and see if there were any new names, but it's pretty much the same ol' untalented group it always is. When is Charlotte going to learn that young people won't be interested in seeing shows until we actually get some new blood on the stage?
Someone has not done their homework. This is one of the most confusing reviews I have ever read.
John Lennon died on December 8 1980, not 84, the play was not fourty-years after the death of John Lennon, it was perhaps a little over thirty-years past this most tragic events. The play was well done with what Mr. Mcclure was allowed to do artisticaly in such a short period of time, and on such a sensitive subject. It would be like trying to do an hr long play about Ghandi.
I don't think Story Slam can die. The idea is too great. Even without a physical location, the legacy lives on.
Hi, my name is Jonny Tate and I am running a new theatre company in the United Kingdom and am hoping to take an adaptation of Reservoir Dogs to the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe festival. I have tried to obtain the rights to perform an adaptation but have been told that Mr Tarantino never endorses stage versions of the production. Could you advise me as to how the production reviewed in your publication on 2.23.10 managed to succeed? or a contact name would be good, thank you, regards, Jonny
It was a great performance. Glad I was there...
A wise, and recently passed away Charlotte great, Jim Duckworth, said 40 hours a week at your craft is nonnegotiable and required of the professional musician. You can insert whatever artistic endeavor you like into that statement. I'm sorry. I'm sick of the twisted and unfair distribution of wealth. If you crunch numbers for BOA, Monday-Friday, 9:00-5:00, you can afford one of these houses in the "hip" neighborhoods. Actors, Dancers, Visual Artists, and Musicians work just as hard (arguably harder) than the suits on Tryon St. But we struggle to just get by. Art is not a frivolous pass-time. It is part of our human experience. We are culturally dead because Charlotte, as a city, as a people won't fund the arts. Even "well funded" theaters (CPCC, Children's Theater, Theater Charlotte, Matthew's Playhouse) fail to pay actors and musicians a living wage. Actually, theaters I mentioned, all pay less than half of union wage for performances. So what happens is this, you get amateur performers with day jobs, who don't mind the shitty pay. ART suffers from this. There are young lions in Charlotte playing in the churches and colleges that are ready to eat up these old people who should stick to their grey-hair top 40's garage bands on the weekends (to the "actors".. go play charades), and let the people who love this shit do it. But we cant, cause again, the money is not there. So we will have another lack luster season full for frustrated (rightfully so) reviews by Perry Tannenbaum. And more small theater groups disband, and wait just enough tables to make rent. ... Speaking of... lets see how RENT (which should be loud and full of youthful fire) comes across in a theater with patrons who regularly complain about music being too loud. And artistic integrity???? PLEASE don't do Sondheim without full orchestration, and a real conductor. The music is far too involved for anyone to be expected to play piano AND conduct. (not the fault of whoever that talented pianist/conductor may be, they should not be asked to do that in the first place) .... I guess we will see what Perry thinks about the "butchery-to-be" in a few months. I'm not so sure Charlotte wants art. They want a "listing of things to do" to lure in the next banking headquarters, but they don't want ART. bummer. I hope that stating what is blatantly obvious to those in the trenches who DO love this, doesn't get me fired or black-listed. I'm keeping this as anonymous as possible. I'm sure they can find a dentist, or CPA who will do the gig for an even lower 45 bucks a service. If some real money was invested in it, some local theaters COULD be as good as the touring shows we get at Blumenthal. (who, by the way, hire Charlotte musicians, AT UNION WAGE) ... so back to Story Slam, $3000 a month to keep them up and running? Come on. How many Hummers park in that area and play shuffle board and corn hole down the block??? Dude, I'm in the black hood keying your shit while you order red wine and tapas. Peace to those with heart and skill! .... ok now... Cigarette break is over, lets forget our dreams and scrub those pots and pans.
I have put forth the GONZO show... so we have a full length play to show. any other takers?
Wouldn't it be fitting for a vibrant community of theatre artists to put together a series of benefits to keep Story Slam alive? An extra show, or a collaborative extravaganza. There is something special about this venture that deserves some help.
Forty years and a day? How about doing your homework. This terrible event occurred on December 8, 1980, thirty years past, not forty as the article conveys. Clearly, the author of this article isn't up to the task of commenting on something so vividly remembered by so many others.
Right on about a boring, and boringly long, Act 1; Act 2 elicited some guffaws (loved the pirate, but where was the stuffed parrot?). The actors gave their all - they had more energy and more moxie than this play deserved.
