Art Station (Stone Mountain) presents

By David Thomas, adapted from the novel by Bailey White

SUZI RECOMMENDED

In this play, Bailey White’s accounts of Southern eccentricity offers a humorous, touching, story-filled memoir of her home in South Georgia. Succumb to the charms of Mama, who will take you to a juke joint so raunchy it scared Earnest Hemmingway away. Mama… is as sweetly intoxicating as a mint julep and as invigorating as a walk in White’s own overgrown garden.

ACTOR'S EXPRESS presents

SUZI RECOMMENDED

 

“Welcome to our house on Maple Avenue.” Based on Alison Bechdel’s bestselling graphic memoir of the same name, Fun Home took Broadway by storm and cemented itself as one of the landmark musicals of our time. Alison dives into her past to trace the sequence of childhood events that made her the adult she is today. In doing so, she initiates a journey of reconciliation with her late father, whose mercurial and secretive personality kept the two apart at the precise moments they should have been closest. A wholly original musical about what happens when you finally see your parents through grown-up eyes.

From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met.

From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he is certainly fun to play with. And he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will Mom find when she gets home…?

Announcing an Atlanta Theatre Podcast

An Open Letter from Laurie Catherine Winkel:

 

Atlanta theatre friends,

I host a theatre podcast here in Atlanta called Never Say Macbeth.*

The gist of the podcast is, performer and tech friends (mostly locals) come on the show to tell their tales of crazy, unpredictable things that have happened onstage in past performances. Usually they're hilarious, but they can also be painful, uplifting, inspiring, cringeworthy, and cautionary.

Episodes have included guests who shot themselves point-blank, broke limbs, derailed entire shows with missed dialogue, failed a battle with their bodily functions onstage while hundreds gaped at them, and much more!

I have a handful of episodes in the bag but am always looking for new stories. Please PM me or email laurie.winks@gmail.com if you'd be willing to have me come to you with a microphone and have a fun chat (can bring wine/beer if desired;)

And if you're interested, please subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Spreaker, and most podcast platforms.
