Back in Business with South of Broadway Theatre

Threshold Theatre in partnership with South of Broadway Theatre Company is proud to present Ma Rainey's Black Bottom by August Wilson.

After having closed our doors for the past two years, we at Threshold Theatre are thrilled to announce our re-opening. We are tremendously excited to

be partnering with South of Broadway Theatre Company, which has been producing exceptional live theatre in the Charleston area for the past eighteen years, to give you August Wilson's Tony Award nominated play Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Set in a recording studio in Chicago in 1927, tensions mount during a recording session of blues virtuoso Gertrude "Ma" Rainey and her band, which includes a young hot-headed trumpeter, Levee Green. A profound exploration of race, art, and religion, as well as the historic exploitation of blues recording artists, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is a powerful play not to be missed.

We thank you for your patience and your inquiries and especially for your support, past, present, and future! We plan to make a few changes that may give us a new look, but we will continue to strive to achieve and surpass the high level of performance you have come to expect at Threshold. We look forward to seeing old friends once again and to making many new ones. With open doors, open arms, and open hearts, we welcome you back!
