Awesome, Love it , it's great.
An excellent and worth-while show to see.
No other facility in Charleston offers, under one roof, classes ( both in-house and outreach ), inexpensive studio space and great shows. That said, the physical facility should expand or move, to showcase better this wide range of much-needed program; all this, and non-profit too. Great job by its new staff!
Good food. Cool atmosphere
This restaurant was by far the best restaurant I have been to in years. Our waitress was lovely and the atmosphere couldn't have been more perfect. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner, while remaining intimate, yet somewhat casual. You can turn the surroundings into whatever you want them to be, casual and fun, or elegant and sophisticated. The food was incredible and the wine too! Plus, we didn't even have to wait long at all on a Friday evening. AND, the prices are great for what you get... I strongly recommend Med Bistro to anyone.
Could use more like this
Plum Elements never fails to thrill me.
Always something special, different and personally important there. Like no place else in Charleston or anywhere.
As so much of King Street goes chain (Thanks City Council/Development- for nothing) or messy/radical/young, Plum holds a singular place and vibration.
Prop Master is evocative and worth seeing.
As good and as fun (and as offensive and as sexist -- as only Mel Brooks can get away with) as the Broadway show. The actors are all incredible (but 'Max', 'Bloom', 'Uma' and exceptionally funny 'Roger' deserve special note); the sets are eye candy. Never say that local talent cannot bring Broadway quality or class to our town. It's absolutely here in this show.
This is a great "little" theater to see a show. Only 240 seats (stadium style seating) means that there isn't a bad seat in the house. The seats are also assigned and you can select seats online or by phone. The show choices are good, the acting is also good. (This is community theater, so it's not Broadway, but still good to great performances depending on the show.)
The pluses, good seating, nice folks, good acting and free soda at intermission! wow, who does free anything anymore? Tickets are reasonable also.
The minuses, well, it's not Broadway quality, but this is rural South Carolina. That also means the shows selected are not going to be too far outside the "blue hair brigade's" realm of what is allowed. Rocky Horror is a stretch and kudos to the people running the theater for allowing something outside the ordinary.
Really there aren't too many negatives. The theater is run professionally and the lights and sound system are above average. Any show done at Flowertown is at the mercy of who shows up to audition, but the shows are generally above average in quality. The theater is clean, the seats are comfortable and the shows deliver.
Plenty of parking as well, so compared to Charleston, the show is the only cost. It's worth the drive to Summerville.
Now, as to my review (4 Stars) that is a comparison to community theater as a whole. I've been to a few theaters up and down the east coast and Flowertown is as good or better than most of them.
I saw this play over the weekend. I am so in love with it! This group of actors has choosen to do a play that puts the trail of Daniel Duncan right in your face. There are some in your face racist parts in the play that makes you see why this person was hung. The cast is very funny having one side of their face white, and one side black. All the actors play both black and white characters as well as role reversal. This is an eye opening play that you should come and see. Also it is a true story that happened 100 years ago, and 10/10 was the date of the trial of this poor man. Come support the arts and see a play that might make you change your mind!!!
The Groundhog Day Benefit Concert for the Halsey Institute featuring The Opposite of a Train was my first performance at Memminger Auditorium. I feel the hall has a nice resonance and an intimate yet spacious feel. I'm looking forward to more shows at Memminger in the future.
Wonderful venue for watching awesome upcoming artists at the high school level. The site is comfortable and most events are free!
Last December I will say that The Christmas event, which is upcoming on December 8th, was better that many pops concerts I used to pay to see in Indianapolis. I highly encourage you attend if you can. My only concern is that the venue is eventually going to be too small for all those wanting to see young talent!
This was OK because the food was bland. The tomato pesto soup tasted like crushed tomatoes, with very little flavor, yet still fresh. The risotto was not true to it's Italian roots, just tasted like firm rice with cream sauce and a few chopped veggies. I will say that the scallops were cooked just right, but the remainder of the dish was bland. On a good note, the atmosphere was nice and they had a great little trio playing.
Last weekend.... ate here but with:
poor service-a blonde waitress who was more interested in talking with guys at the bar than seating us/serving us. Food only mediocre...the guy singing as entertainment was SO loud we could not carry on a conversation at our table.
Finally, Miss Waitress brought the check...I was to get back a few dollars and change. She brought the dollars but not the change...too lazy to count out the coins and thinking SHE would be keeping the change as part of her tip?
She did NOT get a grand tip from me, far from it.
Last time here.
Re: chapmanbates review
This is the thing that ticks me off about poor restaurant service especially when you've been in the food and bev. business for years. A salad which costs about $2.00 in ingredients to make can be comped easily at no loss to a restaurant with the hope someone sees this as an act of faith to get a costumer back in again, improve quality, and gain more business from rave reviews.
As far as I'm concerned I'll never go to this place. Hopefully the management will read these comments and improve things quickly or perhaps comment on the poor service and why it is this way.
For the last few years I have been aware that almost all of the food I have ordered here was mediocre with the occasional above average dish. Which I have been fine with me because for some reason I have always wanted to support Med Bistro and before that Med Deli, when the food was good. However, last Sunday my experience went beyond bad and I have to comment on it. I ordered a the pecan chicken salad and when it arrived it was truly one of the worst salads I have ever had. Extremely tasteless and bland and by the time the server asked how it was, I had no appetite any longer. I told her how bad it was and she asked if there was anything else she could bring me and I told her no. She took my plate with only @ 10% of it eaten and that was that or so I thought. When the bill came the salad was still on it... No manager came by to see why I had sent the meal back or for a discussion and there were only @ 6 tables at the time we were served. So I paid for it and on the bottom I said that I will never be back and I won't. When I said to the waitress that I was shocked that I was charged for such a bad meal she told me that she had asked the manager to remove it from the bill and was told no. Now, I was in food and beverage for 10 years and have never seen anything like this. I guess it goes to show that even the managers and owners have decided that bad food it too bad for the customer that ordered it. I will never be returning and I encourage all people reading this to stop bland food and stop supporting resturants that no longer seem to care about their customers or what kind of quality comes out of their kitchen. Thank you.
this place is in a bad location safety-wise.
Nina has moved to Merida, Mexico. I don't know about the gallery.
Nina's Gallery is a magical wonderland of art - ceramics, jewelry, paintings, drawings, lamps. Whatever the object, the creativity and uniqueness are there. Nina Liu is the warmest, most talented, most interesting gallery owner that I have ever met. I have traveled to Charleston about 20 times for Spoleto and spend a lot of time at Nina's looking, buying and talking with her other visitors. The ceramics and other art work I have purchased from her are all displayed in my home and give me a great deal of pleasure.The let time I saw Nina was in 2011. She was closing up her gallery, trying to sell it and retiring to Mexico. The comments I have read are from after 2011. Did she change her mind or is the gallery under new ownership which uses the original name?
