The past few years we have visited Asheville we have always enjoyed a show at the Asheville Community Theatre. This year due to renovations, the main theatre was not available but we were so glad we were able to go to 35 Below, an intimate black box theatre where performances produced by local theatre groups. Tonight we saw “The Realistic Joneses” about two couples both named Jones, who become neighbors. A bittersweet production as these two couple’s lives become entangled all while facing and coping with relationships and mortality. With humor entwined with the simplicity of other’s responses to simple words or statements, we watch warm, fun and sadness in the lives of each of these individuals and couples. The unintentional humor keeps a soft, light side to the sad issues being faced. A show that has one reflecting later on their own lives and how we each cope with challenges. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and found ourselves talking not only immediately after the play but later on, too. 35 Below is a truly small intimate black box theatre. We will definitely visit again.
We're so glad you got the opportunity to experience a show in 35below! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Our Mainstage will reopen on August 18 - clean, crisp, and completely renovated! We hope that you'll come back and join us again!
