Our top recommendation this week: Steve Yockey’s “The Thrush & the Woodpecker,” a National New Play Network rolling world premiere we’ve been looking forward to since Actor’s Express announced its season.
Our top recommendation this week: “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike.” The Aurora Theatre leg of this co-pro with Horizon Theatre ends with its five final performances.
What to do? What to see? Our top recommendations include the sex comedy “In the Next Room, or the vibrator play,” which runs through Sunday at Synchronicity Theatre.

Our best of the best this week includes “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” at Aurora Theatre, “In the Next Room, or the vibrator play” at Synchronicity and “Stupid F*cking Bird” at Actor’s Express.” Go see a show!
This weekend is rich with things to see and do. Our top pick: Synchronicity Theatre’s “In the Next Room, or the vibrator play,” a Pulitzer- and Tony-nominated sex comedy by Sarah Ruhl. It marks actor Daniel May’s (“The Walking Dead”) first time on an Atlanta stage in four years. Other don’t-misses: “Stupid F*cking Bird” at Actor’s Express, “A Steady Rain” at the Alliance and, of course, the ASO.
