Please-I am BEGGING you to find someone to write these reviews who knows something-anything-about theater. A mommy who wrote a bad zombie book is not what needs to be on the resume' of someone who is being given the capability to cause damage to ticket sales and the future of Charleston's oldest community theater group! What part of "community theater" don't you get? And by the way, Turing is a somewhat of a household name, at least in the homes of more educated people.
Critiquing the critic: what qualifies this person to write a theatrical review? Or anyone currently writing for the City Paper, for that matter? Really, City Paper, I would think that you could find someone with more qualifications than someone who was in some high school plays! I'm sure that there are some folks out there who actually know something about acting, set design, lighting, etc., but she sure isn't one of them. PLEASE hire some people who understand what they're writing about!

The show is Saturday...
Saturday, Sept. 7th.
I agree with citizenqwerty, the hours are long and the timing unfavorable, but as someone who is very familiar with both the reckless background experience, as well as the same experience for numerous other film and television shows, then I have to say this is nothing out of the ordinary.
As for Bruce Dunbar, maybe he should stay away from the entertainment industry if he expects his time as an extra to rocket him to some sort of stardom. On many television shows and movies the extras are treated much worse than they are on Reckless, and despite the sometimes long and unfavorable hours many seem to enjoy the experience.
It is true, Charleston is not LA, nor does it want to be, and professional extras here don't exist, but this industry and it's impact on the community (outside of the petty subject matter) are very important. Shows like reckless, army wives, dear John, and the notebook dumped millions of dollars into the economy of sc over the last 10 years, and with the newly signed film incentives, South Carolina and charleston will hopefully become a lot like our northern neighbor Wilmington North Carolina, which has been a hub for hit movies like iron man 3, the conjuring, and we're the millers all shot in 2012.
It's important to remember that supporting this industry supports our community. They purchase from local vendors and businesses, pay for locations and shoot in our city which increases revenue, even if sometimes it's slightly inconvenient. And extras are an important part of this process. As extras we play a small but important role, for every Bruce Dunbar there's at least 3 or 4 people who really enjoy the experience and learn a lot about the filmmaking process. A process that, supported by the film incentive and educations at trident technical college, USC, and Clemson will hopefully become a viable career options for people in charleston in the near future. And that is a good thing.
Great story. He is obviously a very talented artist and his willingness to share his skills and time is commendable.
They will be leaving Charleston by 2014
Such a neat idea! Love the fact that that you can change the photos as many Instagram users will have many photos they want to display! I have just started blogging about creative ideas for displaying printed Instagram photos and this idea is awesome! thank you for sharing, its neat to see people printing their Instagram photos and doing awesome displays with them!
While it's nice that CBS is here and using some local folks, I think that they have forgotten that this is Charleston, not LA, and the locals that they are hiring as extras are not, in general, professional extras who are trying to break into the business, but local people with actual real jobs and families. Asking for (for example, as happened last week) consecutive "days" (nights) of 12-14 hours (with the shoot ending at 6 AM, on one of them) is simply abusing the good will of the locals. By the time they get to the last episodes they may (and probably should) have trouble filling the courtroom.
Thanks to AGP and Pickleboy i finally plucked up the courage to go back to school, i am studying a Digital media course in college here in the UK. It has been a while (im 23 now) since i have thought about what i could do fr a living, thanks to TheAngrygrandpaShow and KidBehindACamera and other related channels i can finally see my future is in IT. Wether or not i would of realised this eventually reardless does not concern me because watching these videos has shown me what i can be involved with, learn and enjoy while hopefully making a few bucks. Keep up the good work!!
The NEA used to be the ones funding individual artist awards, but small government conservatives decided in the late 80s and early 90s the stuff they were funding was offensive to families or Jesus or something.
Yea, glad these fellowships go to struggling artists...
Meant to say "Some might think it to be a play on the shoe sign on Hiway 61 at the Palmetto Shoe Repair business but any similarity is surely purely coincidental." The edit time ran out rather quickly.
Of course it is essentially a play on the shoe sign on Hiway 61 at the Palmetto Shoe Repair business. Hope no copyright comes into play.
Way to go y'all. Funny show!
Woolfe Street Playhouse is hardly a "still-unfinished warehouse," Elizabeth, and Village Rep moved into the space barely a year ago and has worked tirelessly to renovate the space into an architecturally unique and versatile performance space. The venue played host to the inaugural Theatre Charleston Awards gala this past Saturday night, a formal affair attended by over 250 actors, directors, sound and lighting technicians, set designers, costumers and other theater professionals. Woolfe Street Playhouse garnered seven awards, among them one for best musical, "Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson," which judging by the attendance figures, audience feedback and theater reviews, did very well in capturing the hearts and minds of that edgy Upper King demographic. I hope you have the opportunity to revisit the space and take in one of their upcoming productions, which, beyond "The Woman in Black," include Tom Stoppard's "Arcadia," Sharr White's "The Other Place," and Monty Python's "Spamalot."

Disappointed that they didn't mention that the 827 is the new home of locally produced and operated Internet radio station Kinetic Hifi, as well. (Full disclosure, I currently co-host 2 shows on said station). There's lots of focus on the community - local events, local bands, etc.
That's actually a very, very good design -- much better than CofC's extensively researched and much-vaunted "C".
