BEST HIGH DIVE
Hey, when Carolina Actors Studio Theatre decided to stage Mary Zimmerman’s waterworld version of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, they were not only gambling that enough people would find their way to 1118 Clement Ave. to fill the seats, they were also gambling that the water would stay in the pool long enough for people to see the show! CAST managing artistic director Michael Simmons had the if-we-build-it dream and made it come true — building the pool, filling the seats, and not drowning a single member of his 24-person cast. And he did it without taking a bath financially. Definitely a big splash that will long be remembered.
