Re: “Dystopian Classic 'Fahrenheit 451' Still Strikes Sparks

I cannot wait to see this play. It looks like it will be a riveting performance that will shine a light on uneasy truths in our current society. I am sure many an audience member will leave the show with an expanded mind and a sense of how close we may be to the society Mr. Bradbury portrayed.

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: “Goodyear Arts Gets New Coat of 'Wet Paint'

Unfortunately, Goodyear has been showing the same art from the same people for it's entire existence. It's much more like a private art club than a public art space. In their enormous new space at Camp North End, they could only fill a small part with their chosen artists...which is a shame. There are so many really good artists in Charlotte that need exposure that it's too bad Goodyear is receiving city money to support so few of them.

Also, the theme of the show "Wet Paint" didn't seem to have much relationship with the show itself.

Re: “Osiris Rain Battles Heatstroke and a Broken Ankle to Complete NoDa Mural

And there sir you are wrong. Osiris is highly regarded in the neighborhood and outdates most as a resident. Come on down and bad mouth him and it's likely you how will get a beer, poured on your head. FYI that wall will be free in 6 months and there's many more in NoDa. If you or any business wants to step up and support local artists, you can have your very own wall as could they. My message? Step up or keep your jabs to yourself.

Re: “Osiris Rain Battles Heatstroke and a Broken Ankle to Complete NoDa Mural

Stella Artois isn't a "brewing company". It's one of many brands sold by AB-InBev, the world's largest beer company and one dedicated to squashing independent breweries such as the ones in the NoDa neighborhood. Mr. Rain may have to eat, but I doubt if any NoDa residents are anxious to buy him a (real) beer.

Re: “Perry Tannenbaum Looks Back on His Love/Hate Affair With Charlotte Theater

Perry is a hoot. And yes, he does a lot for the theatre community in Charlotte. I enjoy seeing him and his wife (and sometimes, friends) at COTU shows, when we get one running. Which, by the way Pat, COTU isn't closed down/shuttered. I'm just not there running it. There's shows coming up with the new ladies running the ship- Mandy Kendall and Courtney Varnum. Plus, I'm already planning a show for 2018 as I your the US with COTU productions. I fully hope Perry is out there to take notes and write about it and every other happening that's going on!
-Cartee.

Ps- I hope you come out as well and give the threadbare another shot.

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

Thanks for reaching out, Ernest. Fixed it. Apologies to Che'.

Re: “48 Hour Film Project Producers Aim To Put Charlotte on the Map

I'd like to correct the photo credit for the fight scene image: this picture was taken by middle-schooler Che' Spiotti, who starred in his first film on my team last year. I am on the left setting a light diffuser. You can see Che' in the 48 Hour Film "Little Rock" created by team Film Dojo. Thank you for the coverage of local filmmakers!

Re: “Perry Tannenbaum Looks Back on His Love/Hate Affair With Charlotte Theater

I worked with Perry at the Loaf for a few years back in the Dark Ages. I was frankly amazed (and remain so) that such a small weekly paper in little ol' Charlotte had such a first-rate theater critic. He blew away the Observer in terms of his knowledge, wit, talent, insight and knack for writing memorable lines that would leave me wetting myself with laughter.
I always wondered why he wasn't up in New York writing for the Village Voice or New York magazine. But what the hell, every burg deserves its diamond in the rough.
Oh, and he gets bonus points for being a jazz fan.

Re: “Brian Heffron Has Kept Charlotteans Laughing for Decades, They Just Don't Know It

Heff is one of the hardest working people in comedy show biz, I have known this since 1991 when we first met
I knew he cared about making a big difference in the comedy world, and his hard work would pay off someday and it did! Congrats my old friend, and thanks for treating me with respect when I was a nobody.

Re: “Emerging Local Artist Slices Through Paper to Express Pain, Transformation

Great article, I'm thrilled to see Karla's work getting more exposure and recognition every time! Her work has evolved a lot! Her art is very different than anything I've personally seen and that's one of the things that makes it so appealing and so beautiful. The incredible amount of dedication with each cut reflects the passion on each piece! Congratulations Karla!!
