The 16th annual Atlanta Jewish Film Festival opens Jan. 24, runs through Feb. 15 and will screen some 76 films in its 23 days. The full lineup comes out Jan. 6.
The 4 brand-new musicals by Atlanta writers look at slavery, feminism, aging and family dynamics on Aug. 1-2. Passes, tickets on sale now.
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.
If Dragon Con’s not your thing, check out our top picks — the art fest-within-a book fest in Decatur, “Memphis”at the Rialto Center and the Alliance Theatre’s talent-laden “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (in previews). Then prepare yourself for the joyous onslaught of fall openings to come.
More than 80 feature films, documentaries and short films will be screened at the festival’s Midtown hub Oct. 2-9. Animated shorts appear for the first time.
