The Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte is presenting If Pretty Hurts… from July 27th to August 20th, 2022. It will take place at the Hadley Theatre, at Queens University of Charlotte, 2132 Radcliffe Avenue, Charlotte.
The show will take place Wednesday through Sunday.
Every Wednesday will be “pay what you want.” Advance ticket sales will be at the regular price ($34.50) but all open seats the night of the show will be “pay what you want” at the box office. This truly is “pay what you want.” It can be as low as $1. The Wednesday shows are at 7:30 p.m.
In a mashup of West African folklore and contemporary American culture, this provocative, hilarious new play follows four teenage girls as they grapple with societal definitions of beauty. When Akim’s classmates decide they’ll be damned before they let her be the leading lady in the story, the frenemies jockey for their rank in a culture built on ideals forever out of reach. Brimming with live music and dance, this play doesn’t ask the question “How much is beauty worth?” but rather, “Why are so many willing to pay its price?”Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte
