  • A Monologue from In Memoriam

      CAL: When I was a freshman in college, is a really cliched way to start a story. I really can't believe I just started that way. "When I was a freshman in college." "When I was your age." Wow, I sound like such an asshole. I'm sorry about that.

  • Review: Threshold depicts a relationship in decline

    Couple's Counseling
      I reviewed Threshold Rep's first show in Charleston at Memminger Auditorium in 2010. Fast-forward a year and a half, and Dinner With Friends closes Threshold's first season in their new space on Society Street. The location has been a great move for the young company, and I'm impressed with what they've been able to do with it. I for one am glad to see the company thriving after the move, and wish them an even stronger season next year.

  • Review: Village Playhouse impresses with their final suburban show

    God of Carnage
      God of Carnage is the final show of Village Playhouse's final season in the Ansonborough Square plaza that they've called home for 11 seasons. It's a fitting swan song for the company (not counting this summer's Red White and Cash fundraising show) that leaves us wondering if things will be different when the company starts next season from its new Woolfe Street location downtown. Inevitably there will be changes, but if God of Carnage is any indication, director Keely Enright and the Rep are planning to keep attending to business as usual.

  • Review: Burn This simmers through a sexy, slow show

    Slow Burn
      Director Kenneth C. Graham knows how to get to the core of the characters in South of Broadway's production of Burn This. The play has some damn sharp edges that almost draw the eye away from the dull spots. Playwright Lanford Wilson (Fifth of July, Talley’s Folly) filled this 1987 Tony Award-winner with a great deal of pathos, sexual tension, and base human condition.
