They say the devil’s in the details – and we’re here to point out the devilishly cool details in the QC. When you live in a town for a long time, it’s easy to stop looking. But, from street art to set design to kitschy places to grab a beer and a sandwich, Charlotte’s got plenty to enthrall your curiosity … if you’re looking.
If you really want to find yourself getting lost in the details of Charlotte’s creativity, pull whatever strings you must to get a tour of the legendary scene shop at the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte. Photographer Alvin C. Jacobs Jr. and I slipped back there recently with the theatre’s veteran scenic artist, Tim Parati, and we marveled at the many relics of fantastical worlds hiding in every corner. Having helped build sets and props years ago at the original Children’s Theatre on Morehead Street, this was a nostalgia-rich experience for me. Hover over the individual photos below to read captions in which Parati provides some extra insights. Dig in!
