About 34 West Theater Co.

We started 34 West 16 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.


We write every show.

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 theatre 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. Before the show, our favorite haunt is Harold’s Cabin on Congress Street. Awesome Bloody Mary’s and daily harvest from their rooftop garden. At the end of the night, you’ll often find us enjoying some post-show drinks across the street at the Doar Bros. Their Negroni is pretty terrific!

And when you’ve had your fill of laughs and drama, enjoy the breath-taking history downtown, the vibrant art scene—shoot, the surrounding beaches will add years to your life.

See you soon!

— Jeff and Steve
