Bartok’s riveting chamber opera is given new life in this production from England’s Theatre of Sound. In a departure from the original folktale, a husband and wife deal with the implications of dementia. Instead of doors masking Bluebeard’s true soul, the audience encounters Judith’s fraught relationship with her memories and its effect on her husband.
Sung in English in a newly-commissioned translation, the production features a stellar cast including internationally renowned singers Susan Bullock and Michael Mayes in the principal roles of Duke Bluebeard and Judith. Players from the Atlanta Opera Orchestra will be featured in a new chamber orchestration.
This special co-production from England’s Theatre of Sound and Opera Ventures features a second act talkback with the cast and creatives of this powerful adaptation.

You might just say… it's to die for.

Hi, Atlanta Theatre Buzz Readers! We wanted you to be the first to hear our big news. We are thrilled to announce that we are changing our fall play to the hit comedy Designing Women, the Play, set in Atlanta during election season 2020! This new play by the creator of the hit TV series Designing Women propels the story forward to today. This is a chance for all of us to fill the theatre with laughter this fall - the ladies of Sugarbaker's interior design firm are as whip smart and funny as ever.
Julia, Suzanne, Mary Jo and Charlene back together again - just a few years older, remarried, divorced, and widowed. It’s 2020 in Atlanta, and the politics are red-hot with the presidential election campaign in full swing. The women of Sugarbaker’s are now tackling 21st century challenges of polarized politics, COVID-19, the #metoo movement, racial equity and more with wit, pluck and style. There’s a new black, queer partner Cleo, and Charlene’s evangelical baby sister Haley is their new receptionist. But with COVID threatening their business in more ways than one, will the house of Sugarbaker still stand? Southern, smart, and sassy, these designing women prove that in our times nothing unites us like laughter.
Whether you loved the series, or you are meeting them for the first time, you'll fall hard for these Designing Women.

Lawrenceville Ghost Tours
Sep 02, 2022-Oct 31, 2022 (Fri/Sat only until 10/1)
While Lawrenceville is the oldest city in Metro Atlanta, for many years it was a sleepy suburban Southern town. With the growth and development of the metro area, much of historic downtown Lawrenceville was renovated at the turn of the century.

Whether it’s tales based on local legends, handed down over the decades, or recent paranormal investigations, our professional storytellers will regale you with stories that will send a chill down your spine. Come find out, if you dare, why Lawrenceville has the most popular ghost tour in Metro Atlanta.
Come take a 90-minute scary stroll around the beautiful historic courthouse square and by storefronts restored to their turn-of-the-century charm.
On our scary stroll you will:
Learn about the night that the dead walked down the main street of Lawrenceville
Hear about bizarre paranormal events that have happened recently in the businesses that line the square
Step inside the Old Jail and perhaps experience paranormal activity for yourself
Join us, if you dare, for one of our 90-minute tours of some of Lawrenceville’s most interesting places and the stories behind its most bizarre events, hauntingly told with the charm and personality of a real Southern storyteller.
Tours begin and end at Aurora Theatre,

By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Co-Directed by Susan V. Booth & Tinashe Kajese-Bolden
SEP 2 - OCT 2
Described as “one of this country’s most original and illuminating writers” by The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Branden Jacobs-Jenkins has created an irreverent, rollicking, uproarious ride that asks BIG questions of all who see it. In EVERYBODY, Everybody is a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling, and Everybody must go on a journey to find what has had lasting significance in his lifetime. Inspired by the 15th century play Everyman, EVERYBODY explores the meaning of life and the roles we play along the way. In keeping with life’s random twists and turns, the play’s performers draw names on stage each night to determine which actor will play each character in that performance. Remixing the archetypal medieval morality play into an explosive experiment of wit and emotion, EVERYBODY is a “sunny, stunning journey from life to death” that “fills the heart in a new and unexpected way” (DC Theatre Scene & The New Yorker).
