In this installment, Bertie has come to New York to dodge familial obligations back in England, but his desire to get away from it all comes crashing down when his friend Nigel Bingham-Binkersteth, aka Binky, arrives with a madcap plan to win the heart of the actress Ruby LeRoy.
Theater shines best when it reflects the true lives and struggles of the audience members in a way that moves them and makes them think. N.C. Stage delivers just such an experience in this play.
Before those summertime memories start slipping away, make a quick trip to the beach — or to the musical comedy King Mackerel and the Blues are Running, on view at N.C. Stage Company through Sunday, Oct. 8. Director Neela Munoz does a fine job with this heartfelt show, written by Bland Simpson and Jim Wann […]
Seeger celebrates a man who deserves to be remembered, and Asheville is the perfect place to do this show: The musician’s half-sister Peggy Seeger, herself a celebrated folk singer, lived here for many years and was a prominent member of the local music scene.
When Attic Salt founders Marci Bernstein and Jeff Catanese moved their company to Asheville from New York, officially relaunched in 2013, The Nerd was hot on their radar. “We tried to get the rights and got turned down,” Bernstein says.
Asheville Amadeus — held Friday, March 10-Sunday, March 19 — is about music, of course, but it also includes art, wine, comedy, sing-alongs, theatrical productions and a symphony-meets-hip-hop EP.

North Carolina Stage Company’s sparsely staged production of All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, written by Peter Rothstein, tells the tale of these men and these moments with epic emotional impact.
The Underpants is a play adapted by Steve Martin from an early 1900s German work by Carl Sternheim — and the results are just as madcap as you might imagine. It’s currently being staged by Attic Salt Theatre Company as part of the Catalyst Series at N.C. Stage Company.
Now in its third season of presenting childhood favorites through theater, ACA will employ puppetry by co-founder Abby Felder and the talent of professional actors to reveal the big bad wolf’s alibi in this “hilarious rock musical.”
From the side-splittingly funny, fanny-exposing opening to the tear-jerking conclusion, NC Stage Company‘s production of Sharr White’s Annapurna is a tour de force on every level. Charlie Flyn-McIver’s direction is spot on, and the play is set within the tiny, messy slum of a single-wide trailer. That set, by scenic designer Julie K. Ross and […]

After seeing the show Impossibilities: An Intimate Evening of Magic, Mind Reading and Mayhem, I am firmly convinced that Asheville’s arts scene is missing exactly this type of show. A big tip of the magician’s hat to NC Stage Co. for bringing this dynamic duo and their warm, friendly and all around dazzling show to […]

The […]

A play about preparing for a play must have seemed a good idea when playwright Annie Baker sat down at the keyboard — it seems like a good idea now, when I look at the words — but something didn’t gel. I left the theater grateful to skilled actors for making a limp script stand as long and as firmly as it did.
“Get Some Fairie Tale” plays one night only at NC Stage on Dec. 30.
