Still our top pick: “White Woman in Progress,” (7 Stages world premiere). Opening this week: “Don Pasquale” (Atlanta Opera), “Grease” (Serenbe), “The Magic Negro” (Alliance), “Simply Simone” (Outfit).
Easy to laugh with, terrifically tough to sing, Donizetti’s great achievement lays bare all of humankind’s shortcomings.
Opening Friday & highly recommended: Tara Ochs’ “White Woman in Progress” (7 Stages). Closing: “Exit Strategy” (True Colors).
In the Atlanta Opera’s staging of “Don Pasquale,” which the company is staging for the first time, the Don is an aging silent film star.
Season includes 3 historic works, a Pulitzer winner and 2 in Discoveries Series.
