Old favorites die hard. Under the Lights, which is written, produced, and directed by College of Charleston students, is back for its fifth year at the festival. They must be doing something right with that kind of track record.
Skip the Ritalin. The 10/10 format of the show (10 short plays that are 10 minutes long each) is sure to please even the most A.D.D. of theatergoers. If one play is monotonous and boring, it'll be over in 10 minutes. You're sure to find a few you like — topics range from quirky relationships to deeper, subtle commentaries on materialism.
Today's students, tomorrow's stars. Under the Lights is part of the Stelle di Domani series, which honors tomorrow's stars coming out of the College of Charleston's theater department. While you won't be watching 10 plays written by Tony Kushner, you might be supporting his next protégé.
