An excellent and worth-while show to see.

Re: “Footlight Players Theatre

I had the privilege to see The Miracle Worker and it is rare to see a beautifully conceived, performed and directed show in Charleston that isn't associated with Spoleto and even then you're not guaranteed of a satisfying evening in the theater. Although Footlight Players is the oldest community theater in Charleston, this year it has produced quality work that is far and above the mediocrity that is being passed off by professional theaters. I urge everyone who likes character development and creative set design, costumes, music and directing to see this inspirational play. Later this year, The Miracle Worker will have a revival on Broadway with Abigail Bresslin as Helen. If you can't get to New York I urge you to see this production. The play is rarely performed not because it isn't good, but it's not easy to find young actresses to play the roles of Helen and Annie. Trust me this production is worth attending not only for families but for all those people who love good acting and good theater. Oh, did I mention there is a dog who acts on cue. It is a drama but there are a lot of laughs on the way.

Re: “Wando Performing Arts Center

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!

Re: “Redux Contemporary Art Center

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!

Re: “Sottile Theatre

I agree, the play was absolutely perfect, polished, and side-splittingly hysterical! Suzie was truly remarkable as Madame Arcati, I often found myself chuckling in response to her body gestures; at the unique sounds that burst from her mouth, and then, of course, at the outstanding delivery of the brilliant dialoque that Coward gifted her character!
All of the other actors were superb as well. As was mentioned in another review, I particularly enjoyed Helena Ball who plays a smaller supporting role, Edith, the maid. Her comedic timing was truly spot on! You have little choice but to literally guffaw in response to her facial gestures or her "baby step shuffle".
The role of Charles can be a very tough one, but the interpretation of his character appropriately built up in intensity. He was never over the top, which allowed many of the other characters to shine with their dialogue. A true sign of a great actor!
I could go on and on about the other actors as well, all delivered truly amazing performances! I implore all that have not yet gone, to go see Blithe Spirit. You will not be disappointed!!!

Re: “Sottile Theatre

Great production and fun for the whole family in the spirit of the season. Susie Hallatt is absolutely hilarious and so cute you will wish you had her as your next door neighbor to invite over for tea. Charleston Stage did a great job and this show is definitely one worth planning a night for.

Re: “The Med Eatery & Bar

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.

Re: “Plum Elements

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.

Re: “Gibbes Museum of Art

Prop Master is evocative and worth seeing.

Re: “Sottile Theatre

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.

Re: “The Med Eatery & Bar

Probably the best tasting lunchtime burger in town. Always prepared the way you like it. They even have sweet relish.

Re: “Karson Photography

Hey, I went to the last show and it was a great time! Excellent photography, wine selections were fantastic - very excited about tomorrow's show

Posted by grover720 on December 12, 2008 at 3:30 PM

Re: “Karson Photography

Hey this sounds like a cool show but I think the address is incorrect. Karson Photography Studio and Gallery is on 1050-B East Montague Ave. N. Chas. in the Old Village of Park Circle above Aunt B's restaurant.

Re: “Plum Elements

Plum Elements is one of the most exciting shops in downtown Charleston! There is such an array of interesting items for the home; wonderful art and beautiful pottery in addition to jewelry and books and clever greeting cards. Whenever I need to find a unique gift for someone special I go there and am never disappointed. It's my favorite little gem of a store on King Street.

Re: “Ship Shapes Maritime Museum Arts Center

This is a fabulous place to visit and to browse. The gallery is the only one of its kind in the South, or perhaps in the US, we're told. It combines a retail gallery in the front, filled with nautical artifacts, includinig an old 1800's naval sextant, lots of brass items--ship's bells and ship lights which are in beautiful condition.

Bill Thomas-Moore is the charming host, model shipwright who is the expert on building and restorations. He also builds and repairs clocks, and creates one of a kind doll houses and other miniatures.

He told us stories about the ships and history around charleston harbor. We enjoyed seeing the exhibits of ship models, and the paintings. In the rear is Mr. Thomas-Moore's studio workshop. You can see all the various ship models in stages...newly built ones and restorations in progress.

Among the maritime "jewels" in the studio, are two eight foot tall model racing yachts on display with radio controlled units. They were scratch built by Andrew Charters, who races them around the world.

It's all fascinating, and there is a lot of history surrounding Cooper River harbor--SHIP SHAPES is definitely a charming, historical mini maritime museum. A must see for adults and children. Easy going--Drop by for a visit and chat with Mr. Bill.

Bill gives ship modeling lessons as well. He's a fine storyteller and host. Don't miss it when you're down at the harbor...This unusual gallery is next to the SC Aquarium at Fountain Walk next to the boat landing for Schooner Pride and the SpiritLine Cruises.

Be sure to take the "Schooner Pride" Sailing Cruise around the harbor while you're there. We did, and it was dreamy...not noisy, but an easy ride around the harbor.
