We started 34 West 14 years ago with a dream and a credit card. We invited a few girls to perform a show with us one weekend in a rural church: the card got paid off and 34 West was born.
The dream was simple—do shows people want to see. And do them differently than expected.
We always found ourselves performing in unexpected venues—a gospel musical in a bluegrass bar in Brooklyn, a roaring ‘20’s show in an off-Broadway cabaret, even staging an Old English poem in a medium level prison.
So it made complete sense for us to open a permanent theatre venue in an old yogurt shop in downtown Charleston. Its beautiful and classy and not what you’d expect at all. Seated at small cabaret/bistro tables, our shows are crafted to help you relax, unwind and laugh with friends — fun drinks and savory bites are standing by. Select beers, wines and sodas are all at arms length.
We hope your experience with 34 West is refreshing and memorable. When you’ve had your fill of laughs and drama, you’ll do what we do and enjoy the breath-taking history downtown, the vibrant art scene—shoot, the surrounding beaches will add years to your life.
Oh, and you’re always welcome at the end of the day to stop by Home Team BBQ on Sullivan’s Island and join us for a drink!
