Re: “Theatre Charlotte embraces The Importance of Being Earnest

I was at the performance on Sunday and that young man changed characters so effectively and energetically... even with a script, that actor rose to the occasion splendidly. Someone get him to Blumenthal.

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: “Most of CPCC's Phantom's tricks are treats

I thought this review was spot on. I saw the show last night and it still had technical problems. The phantoms mic went out towards the end although that was the least of his problems. I found him to be lackluster and lacking in presence. Is that really the best they could find in Charlotte for a Phantom? Everyone around me felt the same way. It was a poor disservice to the young woman who played Christine as she was phenomenal. Her voice was amazing. I would say that save for the phantom the cast was outstanding. And I wholeheartedly agree that the costumes during masquerade were superb. The chandelier did stick out like a sore thumb, the pyrotechnics were gimmicky and not necessary and the snow machine was a joke. It was so loud that it was distracting.

For what it is this production was really good. It deserved the good turnout that it had. It's definitely an A+ for effort.

Re: “Most of CPCC's Phantom's tricks are treats

Perry's post runs a blurred line between an actual good 'review' and an obnoxious 'critique.' It's obvious that he enjoyed the show, but needed to find something to pick apart. Counting the seats in the Orchestra Pit? Really?

Re: “Theater review: Anything Goes

Billy and Hope sang ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT, which is Cole Porter's ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT, not the Welsh lullaby of the same name.

Re: “Theater review: Anything Goes

Reno does not sing "all through the night." Neither does Ashtyn.

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!

@question. Well done! The thoughts and questions you experienced and then later expressed. A beautiful collaboration with Andy.

Re: “Andy the Doorbum declares an art war on Charlotte

Ah yes, white man rips off indigenous African/Australian/Asian face paint, "ghost rituals," etc, in effort to shock and surprise white yuppies. Look in the mirror, dude.

Re: “Andy the Doorbum declares an art war on Charlotte

Some guy writes tha Andy "cuts in line" to get a residency...biggest load of shit ever. You clearly are unaware of what's been going on for years. Get your head out of the sand. Alex Mayhew.

Re: “Andy the Doorbum declares an art war on Charlotte

Shameless self promotion disguised as almost philanthropy for a "movement" in what is described as a new scene. Okay??? Really guy? Quite possibly the most pompous part about this is the assertion that there would be no awareness of this so called underground arts / music scene without Sir Andy waking up all the yuppies. Get real! There has been a very large viable scene out there for decades. Some participants are better than others. If a band plays a club on a Monday night in front of 5 people they probably either suck at music, suck at promotion or both, but it is usually no fault of the public's. If someone can't sell their artwork it is either overpriced or it just sucks. Blaming consumers for failures in a free market only reflects the insecurity of the artists.

Re: “Andy the Doorbum declares an art war on Charlotte

Honestly, this isn't doing anything to change the minds of "yuppies" or non-art types. It's self-promotion and nothing more. The people who are interested in it were already aware of Andy and already go to shows and support art. If I were unaware and saw Andy and co. banging on drums and making dolphin noises or what have you it would be an interesting moment, I might take a picture, but it wouldn't make me immediately Google art galleries and music venues in Charlotte. There are better ways to promote art and creativity, if that is actually the purpose of this, which I don't think it is.
