She has performed with Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Barron, Billy Joel, Cassandra Wilson, and many others. A recipient of the MacArthur “genius” award and a Doris Duke Artist Award, Regina Carter is widely considered the finest jazz violinist of her generation.

Threshold Repertory Theatre
84 Society Street, Charleston, SC
Presents: The Night of the Iguana
by Tennessee Williams

The time is 1940 and the setting is the Costa Verde Hotel on the west coast of Mexico, a ramshackle idyll high in a rainforest overlooking the ocean. It's here that Shannon (Owen), in his current, ill-fitting role of tour guide, comes running for help. Tormented by his party of Texan schoolteachers, who accuse him of sleeping with an underage teenage girl, Shannon drags the group away from their designated hotel to this isolated establishment, run by old friends.
