[image-1] South of Broadway Theatre Company (SOBTC) partners with NYC’s Patton Daye Slater Productions to present Love & Southern D!scomfort, a first step in getting the show to Broadway, in Charleston this January.
The show premieres at the Charleston Music Hall on Sat. Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Sun. Jan. 12 at 3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online.
[content-1] Love & Southern D!scomfort is a musical mystery starring Tony Award nominee Felicia P. Fields (from The Color Purple and Dreamgirls). It takes place in rural Louisiana and tells the story of a family torn apart by addiction, mental illness, and a dark secret.
[image-2] With this production, SOBTC wants to, according to a press release, “take on the demand for diversity and inclusiveness in the entertainment industry by spotlighting inter-racial relationships, non-traditional casting of aspiring young artists with Down syndrome, and the theatrical debut of a recent ward of the Carolina Youth Development Center (CYDC).”
As part of their “My Ticket to the Arts” initiative, SOBTC is providing free tickets to CYDC and other local “needs-based” schools for their January shows.
