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?
they cut 3 songs off the set list
and no stairway to heaven
very disappointing -
I am interested in sweetgrass weaving
what are your upcoming classes for this year?
We were here with four grandkids. It was absolute proof that someone out there knew how kids played! We travel a lot and get to see many children's museums. This one was so interactive. The kids played at each center until they were dragged away, only to find delight in the next activity. GOOD JOB designers!
The former "movie house" was built in the 40's, when there weren't so many six footers
I Have been an artist for 51 years. I met Robert Lang 3 years ago and have been impressed with him, his work and agree he has one of best gallerie's in South Carolina if not one of the best in the entire Southeast. I'm opening a Gallery in downtown Charleston with my business partner and his wife. We agree that Robert Lang will continue to grow and be one of the finest artists in the Country. Cudo's to Robert and his wife. Terry Richard
White Christmas was an incredibly well done show with a talented cast. Becca G must have been turned down at auditions.
re: "White Christmas"
Sorry to say that this production was painful to watch. Mismatched cast, inconsistant costuming and poor audio broadcast left you counting down every scene and praying for intermission. The girl crazy leading man could not possiblly sell the role and every man on stage except this very talent young man needed to hem their pants. It was obvious that everyone who showed up for the audition got a part, including some folks who happened to be in the building for another purpose. The set design was inspired but could not save this production.
I just returned from watching 'Power Play', showing 11/20/10 and 11/21/10.
The show itself was very well done. It had comedic moments, but with a serious undertone to it referencing both the power struggles of High School as well as the need to maintain one's individuality. There were 5 actresses total, but one stood out among the rest and I wanted to comment on her.
While all the girls played their parts well, Rachel Dalton stood out in only the most positive way. She was funny, vibrant and seemed very at home on the stage. More than a few times her antics caused the entire audience to laugh, even at times it didn't seem to be in the script. I also sensed some ad-libbing here and there, and if that is indeed what it was, she did so flawlessly. I personally look forward to returning to the theater again, and would love to see her on stage in the future!
All I can say is, INCREDIBLE!!! This was the best show I have ever seen, entertaining the entire time, and the two of them keep you engaged and focused on their act until the end (which comes much too soon)! It is a two-man variety show, with skits likened to SNL and MadTV. Extremely creative and witty, and the acting is amazing! As intelligent as these guys are, they probably could have made technological leaps and bounds for the world, but their audiences are sure glad they turned to comedy instead! I would not be surprised to see their show on TV, so go catch the live act while you can!
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.
not a bad seat in the house
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!!!
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.
i LOVE this place! i love their food! the salads are really great an appropriate proportion for lunch or dinner. Perfect place for a group of friends to grab a bottle of wine and chat.
Probably the best tasting lunchtime burger in town. Always prepared the way you like it. They even have sweet relish.
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
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.
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.
