It was an enjoyable evening! The team was very friendly and we loved their take on the 80’s. Small snack options are available for purchase which was just enough during the show. The homemade pimento cheese dip was fantastic!

Whenever we visit Charleston we make a point to visit the 34 West Theatre. The location is great within walking distance of the Market and dining. It’s small which I like and the two guys that run it are top notch writers and performers. You...More

We recommend ages 6+. The shows are considered PG with several innuendo throughout. Much like a primetime TV sitcom.
