In the mood for laughs but looking for something more innovative than the traditional stand-up routines on offer at The Comedy Zone? Head over to the Charlotte Comedy Theatre for an entirely different experience. The theatre is home to Charlotte's very own company of improv specialists. Rather than delivering overly rehearsed bits, these entertainers start from scratch every time. No rehearsal at all! Audience members are often invited to supply a situation or a buzzword, and then off the players go, making them roar with completely improvised comedy. Drinks are supplied by Joe's Raw Bar right next door. See website for details on weekly improv lessons, as well as a complete calendar of events.
A cultural hub, Levine Center for the Arts is a contemporary building complex. There is something for everyone at this facility. Check out modern art at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art or get to know the culture of the African-Americans at the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture. Creative and artistic renditions can be found at John S. and James L. Knight Theater. The state-of-the-art Mint Museum Uptown also makes a fabulous stop. No matter your reason to visit Levine Center for the Arts, you can be sure of an engaging one.
Part gallery, part studio space, the McColl Center is dedicated to two noble goals: providing local artists with a healthy and inspiring environment in which to work, and encouraging the surrounding community to become more aware of the art world. To these ends, the McColl Center functions as a traditional gallery as well as sponsoring community-building events such as “Open Studio Saturdays” where artists' workspaces are open to the public. Artists-in-residence ply their trades throughout the facility, working with everything from pencils and paints to clay and cements, neon light, heavy metals, and much more. Housed in a renovated 1920s-era church, the Center itself is quite striking. See website for calendar of events and exhibitions.
