Frozen In Time: An Interview with Charleston’s Tommy Dew

For 26 years Tommy Dew has led tourists through the streets of Charleston, South Carolina, on his famed walking tours–one of those tourists being Ashley! And now you have the opportunity to “Dew Charleston” from the comfort of your own device.

Included are insightful comments about the performance elements of leading tours, fascinating historical info about the Dock Street Theatre, the origin of “Porgy and Bess,” laugh-out-loud anecdotes from his tours (including how tourists REALLY react to meeting Bill Murray), and one of the ‘weirdest’ tours he’s ever conducted. Tommy Dew takes us on a journey you won’t want to miss!
