Re: “PaperHouse Theatre's Cutting Comedy Asks, 'What About the Women?'

I'm using this article as a starting point to drive home the point of theatre to bring about change, social dialogue and it's purpose in society to my college students in a Chicagoland suburb. Thank you.

Re: “'Bloom: Revolution' Ignites Charlotte's Performing Arts Scene

The information, photos, comments, and quotes in this article are inspiring~ well-written and POSITIVE! Thanks for making it available to people outside the area~ I think it's important that EVERYONE recognizes the need for revolution, cleansing, freedom, and CHANGE in general. I wish you all (participants & audience) blessings that enlarge your heart chakras and increase POSITIVITY.

Re: “Jessica Moss Makes the Gantt Center a Safe Zone for Local Artists

I might be remiss in this posting, but Jess has artistry in her blood. Her great-grandfather was a pioneering artist in his own right along with that of his half brother

Re: “A geek's guide to understanding Watchmen

No wonder the world terrorist CIA being involved in many 'SUPER HERO' movies with propaganda America the 'Saving Legend of Entire World' & Russia the destroyer of the world.
The American citizens need to understand their country is making fake propagandas for its killings in the name of "War on Terror".
You need to know how many afghas were raped, tortured, murdered by the american psychopath military mercenary dogs before you know how many innocent civilians the
IRON MAN superhero saved.
US created, funded Osama & ISIS for its own interests. The Hollywood is the biggest propaganda for the CIA for its terrorist operations,

i hope Creative Loafing encourages a healthy discussion on this website from all sides of the conversation, will allow DISCUSSIONS on Violence, racism and personal attacks that were deployed behind the so-called "Hollywood" propaganda movies :)

Re: “Run-down of Charlotte Pride performers

You got my hopes up with with a photo of Raven labeled Jujubee in page 26. Thought she might be showing up somewhere this weekend! I know they're good friends but look quite different.

Re: “Trouble in mind: The hard truths of Thornton Dial

Wow. Just seeing this comment by HELLOWORLD. This is what you got from the article? You see a threat where there is no threat? You see difference where there's actually a deep human bond? It's always amazing to me how monumentally some people can miss the point of a piece of writing or work of art. Or maybe you *got* the point but you're just a common, everyday KKK sympathizer. Whatever the case, it's no surprise that you'd be so ashamed of your worldview that you hide behind the anonymity of a fake name... RIP Thornton Dial. You were a gift to this troubled world.

Re: “Dance Theatre Of Harlem offers diversity, not division

Great article!
The company name is Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) not DTOH.

Re: “Summer Guide: Festivals, sports and more events

If you are planning on attending one of these Western North Carolina events this summer, here's a good tip about hotels in the area from a resource you don't hear about that often. If you are looking for discounted hotel rates for good hotels, they are one of the best search sites out there.

I used to like sites like Travelocity, but I quickly found the better way to find deals is to go to the second level - those sites like cheapesthotelreservations dot info who compare the hundreds of booking sites in one single search. So you not only receive the best Trivago or Expedia deals but ALL of them in one place.

They also have a guarantee that if you can find a cheaper rate elsewhere they will pay you the difference!

ps There is also a resource at the site for discounted air fares!

Re: “The death of CAST

Lots of background missing here. The board had a legal duty to do what is best in the long term interest not what Mr. Simmons and others (who could have stepped up with donations) want to do in the short term. Sad story that CAST closed but not giving the full story here. As always, people love to trash the board because they fail to understand that role. Serve as an arts board member and see if you still feel the same way!

Re: “The death of CAST

Thank you for this grand explanation of a preventable cultural tragedy for Charlotte. What a clusterf**k. My heart goes out to Michael Simmons. My sympathy's saved for the rest of us who loved CAST.

Re: “The death of CAST

Let me see if I am following these dates correctly: The board announced on June 6 that it was closing on June 30. "NoDa's two pre-eminent theater producers," Mr. Simmons (who already knew the fate of his theatre) and Mr. Ford met on June 4 to discuss rental options, and Mr. Simmons was "planning to sound Ford on the possibility of a partnership or a merger."

So this idiot band of board members didn't send up an SOS flare before announcing the closure? That was dumb. But with nearly a month to act, why didn't the "hundreds" of shocked actors, designers, directors, donors and fans, including Mr. Ford at the ready with a lifeline, rise up to kick out this lousy "rogue board of directors"? Board takeovers happen all the time. The Light Factory here in Charlotte and the San Diego Opera mentioned above are two great examples. Bring in fresh blood and money. If CAST really matters to the community, where are those ardent , passionate fans to save CAST? Or perhaps they don't care THAT much…???

Fantastic story, Perry, as usual. What a damned shame, to put it mildly. One question: why didn't you pose for the Yorick skull photo? ;-)

Re: “The death of CAST

Just a few months ago, the board of San Diego Opera did the same thing: with no warning, they voted to dissolve the company.*

But that made news nationally, and there was a backlash both within San Diego and beyond. After a lot of drama (including the replacement of the board chair), the decision to close was reversed and the company was saved (at least for the time being).

Any chance something like that could happen with CAST?

*The difference: in San Diego, the company's longtime head, who was evidently ready to retire, was in favor of shutting the opera company down. It may well have been his idea. And while San Diego Opera isn't gone, he is,/i>, and he pretty much blew what had been a rather good reputation in the process.
