Preview: Don’t Cry for Me Margaret Mitchell

margaret mitchell posterNothing evokes the image of the genteel south as Gone with the Wind and, with its character connections to Charleston, no novel or movie generates such palpable passion here in the Holy City. Did you know the movie was almost a bomb? With a script filled with holes and a budget reaching a breaking point, one of the most famous movies of all time almost didn’t get made. 

 

I had the great fortune to sit down with director Robin Burke and his cast to discuss his upcoming production of Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell – the story of 7 crazy days that turned a worthless script into one of the greatest films of all time. In the attached interview you’ll hear about the characters, the actors, the director, and the theatre that bring this story to life.

Don’t Cry for Me, Margaret Mitchell is playing at Threshold Repertory Theatre in Charleston from January 15th through February 8th. That’s 4 weeks (I mistakenly said 3 in the attached audio). Get your tickets soon and let them know Steve sent you!
