Lyrics by Steven Cheslik-DeMeyer & Tim Maner
Book by Tim Maner

July 9 - July 24

“Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.”

 

Or did she? This blistering rock musical upends one of the most intriguing crimes in our country’s history, which has captured our collective imagination since that bloody night in 1892. Was Lizzie Borden a cold-blooded killer or a victim of the Victorian patriarchy?

“…IT HAS A VIRTUE OF GUT, URGENCY AND NECESSITY…UNADORNED HONESTY…”
–Edward Albee

In Odessa Blue’s neighborhood café, three generations of a Black southern family share a passion for activism, art, and following your heart. But they don’t always agree on the methods, especially when their protests threaten their freedom and safety. In this expansive, timely, and magical comedy-drama, the Blue family faces a crossroads. Only together can they find the courage to stand up for their beliefs as they redefine what makes a family and what holds it together.

“A witty, inventive enchantment… It is both the most innovative and the best new musical to open on Broadway since Hamilton!” 
– The New York Times

Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn’t here…But what about Pierre? Based on a 70-page slice of War and Peace, this Tony Award-winning musical is Tolstoy like you’ve never experienced him before. Step into a glamorous, romantic world of chandeliers, vodka and caviar in the salons and opera houses of 19th century Moscow, where passions ignite as Napoleon’s war rages outside the city.

The New South Play Festival is Horizon’s unique celebration of plays from, for, and about the contemporary South. Horizon strives to be a dynamic leader in contemporary theatre in the Southeast, and with the New South Play Festival, Horizon is at the forefront of developing and showcasing new work by Southern writers about who we are today in the New South. The Festival has received significant local and national recognition from the media and funders. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution hailed the Festival as a “crucible [that] feeds writers’ creative fires,” and Creative Loafing touted that it “finds and defines Southern plays.”

The South we explore in the Festival is not the one of the past, but the one of today – in all its diversity and contradiction. We seek out writers and plays that speak to our urban Southern audiences and that expand the world’s view of our cosmopolitan South. “Horizon’s New South Play Festival is about expanding the diversity of voices coming out of the contemporary South,”says Co-Artistic Director Lisa Adler. “The world thinks of the South in terms of civil war and civil rights. We who live here experience a complex place with many perspectives, cultures and people. We hope the New South Play Festival and its writers reflect this true new South.”

WEST SIDE STORY
July 8-24
Book by: Arthur Laurents
Music by: Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by: Stephen Sondheim
Based on a Conception of Jerome Robbins

From the first notes to the final breath, WEST SIDE STORY is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim are widely regarded as among the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. In WEST SIDE STORY, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the American "Jets" and the Puerto Rican "Sharks." Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

A SEASON OF CHARACTER

CHAR·AC·TER /ˈkerəktər/

The distinctive nature of something; the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual; a person’s reputation.

WA 8.jpg

June 8 - June 22

In this hilarious and moving new musical adventure that puts a clever twist on Greek mythology, spunky and curious Orphie sets sail to save Homer and his Book of Heroes—a quest that takes her from the heights of Mt. Olympus to the depths of the underworld. On her journey, she meets her hero, Heracles, some sassy Sirens, and even the toe-tapping, comical Hades. Orphie proves that not all heroes have to be powerful and that sometimes all it takes is heart and determination. With allusions to Greek culture and some surprising twists and fantastical songs, Orphie and the Book of Heroes adds a girl-power spin to the joys of reading and Greek mythology.

WA 9.jpg

July 13 - July 27

Based on the story by Roald Dahl, James and the Giant Peach follows a boy on an epic journey. When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach… and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach, among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James’ quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.
