Charleston residents Thomas & Judy Heath's most recent play has been chosen to be part of the prestigious 2013 New York International Fringe Festival in August, from over 800 entries. FringeNYC is the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with select companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues, including on Off-Broadway.

The play's world premiere was at last year's Piccolo Spoleto Festival, where it received rave reviews and played to SRO audiences at the Footlight Players Community Theater.

What does a mud bath in Calistoga, California have to do with an art show? As four Charleston artists relaxed in the famous Calistoga Spa, they thought about doing a show together that would capture the beautiful dusks and dawns they had experienced during their art journeys together. Brenda Orcutt,
Patricia Huff, Mary Sayas, and Marty Biernbaum have developed an "artist circle" similar to historical artist groups that traveled together to paint and support eachother. Artistic and creative strength created by the generation of ideas and positive critiquing, encouragement and, of course, just plain fun in painting together, have forged the basis of this show’s work.
The show will remain at the Studio from May 24 – July 1.Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. All are welcome. For more information, contact The Real Estate Studio at 843-722-5618.

Balzac brothers Richard and Ralph began importing unroasted, or green, coffee
beans in 1917, opened an office on Wall Street in 1930, and welcomed three more
generations to the growing business over the course of 95 years. The Charleston
connection came in 1996, when the whole operation moved into the salmon-colored
building on Fulton just off King Street.
Balzac imports coffee from at least ten countries and sells it by container load to
roasters all over the United States and Canada. In 2001 they imported the first full
container of Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee beans to the U.S., subsequently
winning the Rainforest Alliance Corporate Green Globe Award. President Richard
Keane sits on the board of the National Coffee Association. While tons of coffee from
all over the world may not land on Balzac’s Fulton Street doorstep, every coffee they
import is cupped (tasted), tested and carefully tracked from the building.

The Preservation Society of Charleston's Book & Gift Shop at King & Queen will host author Jim Piecuch to sign his book General Nathanael Greene and the American Revolution in the South, co-edited by Gregory D. Massey. The book discusses Nathanael Greene, a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution.
Greene has often been acclaimed as the second most important military figure of the Revolution, behind George Washington. This book offers new perspectives on Greene's leadership of Continental troops, his use of the mounted troops of South Carolina partisan leaders Thomas Sumter and Francis Marion, his integration of local militia into his fighting force, and his proposal that slaves be armed and freed in return for their military service.
