Here at the Charleston Arts Alliance, having an insider’s view of local theatre can be quite the learning experience!
Today, we had the pleasure of speaking with Village Repertory director Keely Enright about this weekend’s upcoming production of “DISCORD – The Gospel According to Thomas Jefferson, Charles Dickens and Count Leo Tolstoy” and Woolfe Street Playhouse’s gem blackbox, Sidestage.
This alternative, three-man production is currently being performed in Sidestage, a space only used two to three times each year in the theatre’s season. “DISCORD…” will be this stage’s last production until summertime, after Village Repertory puts on “Rock of Ages” on its mainstage. This humbling blackbox rings true to the historic and intimate aesthetic that the theatre has to offer, and because of this intimacy the audience has the opportunity to receive the message and words more clearly than other types of venues.
“DISCORD…” will run its final four showings this weekend starting tonight, Friday and Saturday night at 7:30pm as well as a Sunday matinee performance at 3:00pm. Enjoy the brisk (and not bitter cold) evening and celebrate what Village Repertory has to offer to our theatre community!
