'Me And Jezebel' And 'BUSK!'
Part One: Queen City Theatre Co.'s Me and Jezebel. We've all had a houseguest who overstayed their welcome. Most do so for a matter of minutes or hours. Hollywood superstar overstayed her welcome by 32 days! Author Elizabeth Fuller met Bette Davis in 1985 and offered to let Ms. Davis stay in her home while there was a hotel strike raging in New York City. Over a month later, Davis finally left but her legacy continued as Ms. Fuller wrote a popular book about the experience. That book is now a play and Queen City Theatre is presenting it. We'll learn more when Charlotte Talks.
- Me & Jezebel is at Duke Energy Theatre May 2 - 18. Details.
Part Two: BUSK! Most of us sing in the shower and dream of being on American Idol. Other talented folks go to some sort of performing arts school or take private classes. But some aspiring singers, musicians, jugglers and other artists simply take their talent to the streets to entertain the public and maybe make a buck or two. They are called Buskers and uptown Charlotte is becoming vibrant with street performers. One documentarian set out to explore the world of busking and the artists brave enough to embrace the lifestyle. She joins us to talk about Buskapalooza and more when Charlotte Talks.
