This week’s best: Out of Hand’s “Dogs of Rwanda,” the Alliance’s “Hand to God,” Horizon’s “Project Dawn,” the national tour of “The Color Purple.”
This Super Bowl of food fests happens Friday, Saturday and Sunday in its new permanent home — Historic Fourth Ward Park near the Atlanta BeltLine.
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.
Atlanta’s festival season has something for everyone. Here are at least some of the don’t-miss events.
The 14th annual Taste of Atlanta returns to Midtown on Sept. 25 and, to date, 50 restaurants have signed up to take part. That list is expected to grow. Discount tickets on sale while supplies last.
