Re: “Rapist and victim face off in Footlight's Extremities

Violin crime started with Jack Benny. He broke every law of music whenever he drew a bow across the strings.

Re: “Pure's Russian Transport heads straight for the heart

From the outside looking in, everything looks fantastic even promising. But get into the real day to day detritus, then the truth emerges. This is the same for anything, anywhere. Good work!

Re: “Theater Review: The Great Divorce takes audience through the afterlife

I saw this play and cast in Phoenix. Terrific production and the sets nearly stole the show. The seamless transition between scenes and costumes was awesome in the true sense of that word. The actors' polished performances are New York quality. Good show!

Re: “Theater Review: The Great Divorce takes audience through the afterlife

Thing is divorce is so important to the economy. Breaking up relationship results in the need for more places to live, the convenience of fast food, legal fees, etc. Much in the media is driven toward normalizing adultery, alcoholism, and other behaviors that drive many divorces. This has, of course, very little, if anything to do with this play.

Re: “Pure's Russian Transport heads straight for the heart

Wow, what a show. Acting was amazeballs. We ended up talking about the play for a couple of days after. Everyone involved should be commended for a great show.

Our spam filter is pretty good, but this week, we've been finding about 10 new spam posts every morning. Currently working hard on figuring out how to eradicate!

Re: “Pure's Russian Transport heads straight for the heart

The handful of trolls who regularly monopolize CP's comment sections are bad enough without spammers like the one above chiming in. It would be nice if those screening content (and I assume someone does) would block the work-at-home ad scams, or at least find a way to delete them if they do get through.

If you have something to contribute about the subject/article/review, fine. If not, spare the reading public.

I hear this show's amazing.

Re: “Pure's Russian Transport heads straight for the heart

As my first PURE show, this was intense, well acted and pretty awesome. You're confused when you hear a play as "thriller" but I understood well after it was over. Check it out pre-bars on an Upper King night.

Re: “Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens take audiences on a wild ride

Saw this show too this past weekend and thought it was just what the reviewer describes. Lots of fun, exciting and very different for Charleston with fantastic performances. Lot's of friends in this production who kicked some ass.

Mat Catastrophe I wonder why you find it necessary to post such a negative comment about something positive and well deserved? You clearly know something about this show since you are aware its been around for 20 years. Did you also know its only been produced in the United States a handful of times? I have friends that produced this show in AK a few years back and were surprised when they saw it was being done down in Charleston because it is so rarely produced. So, I'd say that is pretty new still....to just about any theatre goer no matter where they live.

There are plenty of amazing shows that have been around for years that have not been produced in Charleston before. We are lucky to have theaters around like PURE, Village, What If? and a couple others in town who are working to bring innovative and new work to Charleston all the time. It might be a good idea to check out some of those theaters and actually see what is being done in this town before dismissing the theatre scene as behind the times.

That is the great thing about theatre...reinterpreting, reinveting-inventing and reintroducing someone else's art to a new and eager audience...no matter how old, new or, as the reviewer notes about this show, obscure.

Re: “Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens take audiences on a wild ride

"Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens is triumphantly everything you wouldn't expect in the Charleston theatre."

Considering it's almost 20 years old, I'm not surprised it's running in Charleston.

Saw it & loved it. I think Dr. Whackoff was worth a mention too. Loved his character!

Re: “Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche is hilarious — again

I guess because a show about five heterosexuals eating a quiche just wouldn't have worked or been nearly as funny. The real question is why you feel threatened by it. It's a play. Come see it. You might enjoy it.

Re: “Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche is hilarious — again

Why do lesbians rate extra attention in the media? How about "5 heterosexuals eating a quiche"? Hardly newsworthy. But LESBIANS!! That's somehow suppose to be special, even magical. Why? I'm just saying.
