“I’ve gathered together contestants from the burlesque, dance and comedy world in Asheville to compete against each other in what I hope to be a sexy, silly competition,” Kathleen Hahn says. The shows start Thursday, Jan. 5, at The Magnetic Theatre.
The Asheville Playback Theatre held a couple performances at N.C. Stage over the weekend. On Saturday, Jan. 7, the crew of six helped to showcase personal stories presented by volunteers from the audience with the overall theme “The First Time I Ever.” Using improvisation and comedy, the troupe reenacted comical and heartfelt first times.
