Wide Angle Lunches Presents: Vince Musi

Wide Angle Lunches is delighted to announce its ninth lunchtime speaker series at the Charleston Library Society.  This fall Wide Angle features six distinctly talented speakers, but common among them is that they are true and gifted storytellers. Through photographs, music, and words, both written and spoken, their work reveals to us worlds and ideas we might not otherwise encounter. Do not miss this opportunity to hear their stories, and maybe even gain perspective on your own! As always, we promise you that your hour at CLS will revive and recharge you in the middle of your day.

The Art of the Ace Basin.

For the last 30 years Vincent J. Musi has travelled the world photographing everything from volcanoes to mummies, capturing enduring images of vanishing cultures, history, and archaeology. He currently specializes in animal portraiture for National Geographic Magazine, and his work is an often quirky look at the world of exotic pets, domestication, and cognition.  In between assignments, Musi, who lives on Sullivan’s Island, has focused on the Lowcountry, producing a portfolio celebrating the ACE Basin for the November 2014 edition of National Geographic. Musi’s photographs of the Ace Basin tell a story, in pictures, of an unprecedented 25 years of public-private partnership that has protected more than 217,000 beautiful and biodiverse acres just 30-some miles from downtown Charleston.

Crabpot Players Present: Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
