See the play that people are talking about, as I Am My Own Wife hits the stage. It tells the true story of a German transvestite, Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, who resisted the clenches of both the Nazi and the Communist regimes. Berlin then gave her one of the most prestigious civil awards. It's amazing how far charm can go. $10-$34.50. May 6-18. All showings 8 p.m. except for May 11 & 18, 3 p.m. Booth Playhouse. 130 N. Tryon St. 704-372-1000. www.blumenthalcenter.org
