THEATER: Grey Gardens 

Saturday, Jan. 30

It's hard to imagine how two well-to-do women related to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis -- Edith ("Big Edie") Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith ("Little Edie") -- could go from a grand lifestyle to animal infestation (In case you don't know, I'll fill you in: In 1973, they were found living in their 28-room mansion, which was without running water, and ... it gets worse ... filled with 52 cats, fleas and raccoons. Ahhh. A&E's Hoarders would have had ratings through the roof with this.) But you'll get the full story with Queen City Theatre Company's latest production, Grey Gardens. The musical, by Doug Wright (I Am My Own Wife) with music by Scott Frankel and lyrics by Michael Korie, is based on the cult classic documentary by Albert and David Maysles, and directed by Charlotte's own Glenn T. Griffin of QCTC. Recommended for audiences over 13 years old. For more information on Queen City Theatre Company, visit www.queencitytheatre.com. $18-$28. Jan. 30, 8 p.m.; Feb. 3-6, 8 p.m.; Feb. 7, 2 p.m.; Feb. 10-13, 8 p.m. Duke Energy Theatre, 345 N. College St. 704-372-1000. www.carolinatix.org.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
