Let’s all go to the theater, an Atlanta theater

Actor’s Express. Anton Chekhov. Steve Yockey. Let those names guide you as you navigate metro Atlanta’s jam-packed fall theater season.

THIS WEEKEND’S BEST BETS | Aug. 27

Catch “Memphis,” if you can, in its final week at Aurora Theatre, then prepare for the fall rush of new and exciting openings — “Cuckoo’s Nest” at the Alliance, “Stupid F*cking Bird” at Actor’s Express and a whole lot more.

THIS WEEKEND’S BEST BETS | Aug. 20

Weird Sisters’ “Hot Pink” opens. “Motown” at the Fox and the 2015 Essential Theatre Festival close and “Memphis” rolls at Aurora Theatre. See a show!

Theater, music, circus acts put the art in DBF

The AJC Decatur Book Festival has lined up plenty of free theater, music, chalk art and more for the third art|DBF, the arts-festival-within-the-book-festival held Labor Day weekend (Sept. 4-6) in downtown Decatur.

THIS WEEKEND’S BEST BETS | Aug. 13

A very full calendar includes closing weekend for Serenbe Playhouse’s “Evita” and the one-weekend-only “Shaking the Wind,” written and performed by Atlanta dynamo Minka Wiltz. Up next: “Hot Pink, or Ready to Blow” (Weird Sisters); Motown the Musical at the Fox; and Wabi Sabi — that’s dance — at Serenbe.

HITSVILLE U.S.A.

There’s only so much history one can get from a two-hour musical. But “Motown the Musical” — with its 66 hit songs — reminds us how Berry Gordy’s vision helped create an America in which both blacks and whites were “Dancing in the Streets.”

BIRDS OF A FEATHER

“King Lear.” “A Trip to Bountiful.” “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” These are plays you don’t do unless you have your leads locked in. So, for her “Cuckoo,” the Alliance Theatre’s Susan V. Booth locked in Neal A. Ghant and Tess Malis Kincaid and surrounded them with many of the city’s best character actors.
