The last 2 times I've been there, the staff have been lackluster at best. It's close to where I work, but I've been scouting and trying other places since August. It's too expensive for what you get and the staff need several lessons in customer service or something. Or maybe better staff should be hired by management?
This article is great. I wish you'd write a follow-up to explain the differences between Piccolo Spoleto and Spoleto Festival USA since the majority of people who attend the festivals don't know they are separate entities.
Really? Mr. Day, I'm so disappointed in City Paper's selection of you as the overall festival reviewer. You're writing is sub-par and leads me to think that City Paper should take a long, hard look at whether or not they should be utilizing your "talents" for next year's festival.
Thank you for the above comments. I have lost a great deal of respect for City Paper this festival thanks to Jeffrey Day's reviews.
Dear Ms. Rhyne,
I've noticed this, too. For years. It does suck. My biggest peeve with Charleston audiences (especially theatre ones) - they are LATE. Always late. I've even heard angry patrons scream "Everyone in Charleston is late!" at the ticket sellers because they arrived to a show late and no late seating was allowed. The latest example I saw of this was when my husband bought us tickets to see Les Miserables at NPAC for my birthday. We arrived in plenty of time and the show began promptly at 7:30. However, 20-30% of the audience arrived after the show had begun and caused such a commotion when let into the theatre that my husband (who has never seen the show) missed part of the opening number as rude late people came in who had tickets in the middle of our aisle. If anything, your article was too nice towards these offending people. Still a great article, and I'm glad someone wrote about this.
I liked the fivolity of this article. Keep it up Abbondanza!
