The lineup builds on what Atlanta Opera does best, its leaders say: Share high-quality programming, expand and engage the audience, and start conversations.
Openings include “Disgraced” at the Alliance, “I and You” at Aurora, “Moxie” at Theatrical Outfit and “The Toxic Avenger” at Horizon. Also: The Atlanta Jewish Film Festival is underway and “Wit” (Aurora) and “Sweeney Todd” (Actor’s Express) continue their runs.
Anybody hungry? “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” Stephen Sondheim’s musical thriller, comes to Actor’s Express for a run of revenge, murder, meat pies and macabre fun.
What to see? What to do? Our top recommendations include “Wit” at Aurora Theatre, one of the winter/spring season’s don’t-miss events, and the return of those wacky missionaries in “The Book of Mormon” at the Fox Theatre.
Any theater city in America would be proud to boast this 10-plus-show lineup that, to us, looks like the best in Atlanta’s winter/spring season. These are the titles that made us sit up and go “ooohhh.” See if you agree.
