CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A two-man play like "The Story of My Life," Charleston Stage Company's newest production, would be daunting for nearly any community actor. Ninety minutes is a lot of time to spend on stage with only one other person to help carry the dialogue.
"It's an endurance test for sure," director Timothy Mace said. "To make this play work, you need two guys with the right chemistry. You can't fake that on stage."
They also have to be able to sing -- a lot.
"The Story of My Life," which opens Thursday at the Capitol Center Theater, isn't just a two-man play about a lifelong friendship between two men; it's a musical.
