We know, we know: theater tickets can be expensive. The price has to cover a lot, after all, from paying the actors and stage crew to just keeping the lights on. Profit usually isn’t a big part of the equation. After all, when’s the last time you heard of a local theater raking in the cash? 

This is all to say that theater ticket prices in this town, at least, are nothing to get huffy about. But it’s still pretty nice when one of those pay-what-you-will (PWYW) nights comes around — this time, it’s for Charleston Stage’s The Producers, the Mel Brooks musical about two producers whose get-rich-quick scheme involves deliberately putting on a Broadway flop called Springtime for Hitler. The only problem is, it ends up being a huge success. The PWYW show is Wed. Aug. 26 at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are available online starting at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday.
