Standing Ovation for Peter Tamm

I Am My Own Wife opened this evening in 35below at ACT. Based on the standing ovation from the audience, it's safe to say the performance was a hit.

"First performances are always interesting," said "Wife" director Andrew Gall. "You never know how an audience will respond, especially to a production that is as out-of-the-box as I Am My Own Wife is. However, we all felt a big sense of accomplishment and fulfillment at our first performance, and we are looking forward to having a great run."

Asheville's own Peter Tamm stars as Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a real life transvestite and antique collector who survived the Nazi and Communist regimes. It's a one-man show, and what may be most striking about the play is Peter's ability to seamlessly transition from one character to the next. Shortly after the show a friend came up to me and said simply: "That was amazing." Yes it was. Great job to Peter, Andrew, and the entire production crew!

The show runs Thursday - Saturday evenings through October 24. Performance time is 7:30pm. Hope to see you at 35below.
