That's nice. Very clever.
Enrique Graf is slated to appear on next week's "Piano Jazz" with Marian McPartland, so be sure to tune in!
Thank you for this excellent article. I've been following Enough Pie's work with both skepticism and hope. The redevelopment they propose has a lot to offer to Charleston but it ultimately seems to be a gentrification project in its current iteration. I am all for improving a place (or "creative placemaking"), but if it's not of the community, it's bound to be gentrification. It's heartening to hear about their micro-grants program, but it will take a lot more community engagement than that to achieve inclusion. I'm not sure if there are City policy/regulation mechanisms that could be employed to prevent gentrification, but using those or creating them would certainly be a show of good faith.
And those irritating women's voices...all night long. Rude house staff.
I'm unclear what these extras (nobodies in a mostly nobody-filled show) expected?
Adoring fans giving them bj's off set? Cash bonuses liberally dispersed (because the pathetic pay was known in advance)? An impromptu starring role? Actual fun partying?
They should be happy they got a free meal, but the ginger ale and V8 downer cancels that out.
"lucky enough to participate"
"lucky enough to be on set"
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
"A lot of the time the extras were standing around, getting into wardrobe (or out of wardrobe since some of the men were asked to lose their shirts), and being placed and re-placed around set. Dunbar related it to being herded like cattle, and explains how the extras crew had to spend almost an hour in the backyard of the party house being as quiet as possible while the actors shot a scene inside the house."
Yes, well, that is the whole point of being an extra. With that astute assessment Dunbar seems very intellectually qualified to be a part of this show.
A significant amount of live theater which enriches the community and keeps tourists amused (and occassionally shocked). A huge achievement resulting from lifetimes or effort.
This book is a must read! I never put it down until I was finished. The facts make a much more amazing story than the tall tale of "mass murders". I am a tour guide and was thrilled to read what really happened. Ghost stories and legend are not part of our intense exam, nor should they be. However, now that the facts of the Fishers has resurfaced, it should be in the study manual due to their popularity.
She brought out the best in a piano and in the people lucky enough to be on her show and play with her. Legend is absolutely correct.
Good way to sell tickets to the ceremony; so, actually, nominees just get your friends to attend and vote. Then, you are a WINNER!
I think that the idea is to celebrate 30 years with a show that will have a larger footprint than usual. Shepard Fairey and Jasper Johns are world class artists. Here we are talking about them 8 or 9 months ahead of time. If it were Burwell or Brian Rutenberg, I don't think that would be the case.
Update: The times have changed! It's all all-day affair rather than day + evening soiree. The SpaceCraft anniversary event is 11am - 6pm. Auto-Bahn food truck will be at the shop from 3-6pm. There is no evening event that night; all the action is between 11am and 6pm. There will be Tesla coil and 3D printing demos! T-shirt cutting demos! Free kids' craft table!
thats excellent deck.
what about the 30th anniversary next year?
I split my time between Washington DC and Charleston SC. I saw Camelot Saturday evening, and it was delightful. I thought the vocals were excellent, and the sets and costumes charming. I particularly liked the character development the actors used for their roles. I believe after reading the above comments that the Post and Courrier needs a new theater critic!
Joseph Burwell did graduate from C of C. His show opens at the Halsey this week.
cid95 you are right gentrification and racism are two separate things. But unfortunately the Gentry Class is predominantly white, because of the untreated racism in our society. and i am not saying that the gentrification process is inharantly racist, but the comments from people like you on this topic and others about race, show the racism i am speaking of. You and some other commenters here, either feel that there are no more race problems in the world and there really still does not exist priviledges for caucasians, or you have just been fed this information by your fox news pundits, or whatever source you decide to get your information from that suits your own pursuits. maybe you want to own realestate, maybe you are looking for an excuse to right your exploitative ventures, i dont know. i dont know you. but one way or another you are living a lie! the civil rights movement is still less than a century old. In a small georgia town until recently, the high schools prom was still segregated. so that you keep insisting that race never plays a role in any other issues is redonkulous. social issues link all the time, and when there is a outside group that is mostly white, coming into a mostly black neighborhood, while not directly communicating with the longest inhabitants of the neighborhood, making plans to change the neighborhood, with 95 percent of attendees of these meetings being the newcomers, which are mostly white, then yessss, race plays a major role in this version of Gentrification.
