Now Playing Onstage in Atlanta - Week of 2/03/2013 THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM
HARRISON HIGH SCHOOL
11/2-2/8/2013
A rousing, bawdy Southern fairy tale set in eighteenth century Mississippi, THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM is the story of the courting of Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country, by Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of the woods. The proceedings go awry, thanks to an unconventional case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother intent on Rosamund's demise, her pea-brained henchman and a hostile talking head-in-a-trunk, and you have the recipe for a rollicking country romp.Told in "story theatre" fashion with nine principal actors on a unit set, THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM is extremely flexible in its staging and production possibilities. The hysterical book by Alfred Uhry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of DRIVING MISS DAISY, gives each actor his or her moment to shine. Composer Robert Waldman has created a score to be played by a small onstage band. It's one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical, giving this unusual tale of the Natchez Trace a distinctive sound all its own.

ACTORS EXPRESS
1/10-2/17/2013
BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson creators Michael Friedman and Alex Timbers cook up an alternate universe (and draw parallels to today's political/populist landscape) with their musical about the seventh U.S. president, reinvented as an "emo" rock star. BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson tells the story of America's first political maverick. A.J. kicked British butt, shafted the Indians and smacked down the Spaniards all in the name of these United States--who cares if he didn't have permission?An exhilarating and white-knuckled look at one of our nation's founding rock stars, BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson recreates and reinvents the life of "Old Hickory," from his humble beginnings on the Tennessee frontier to his days as Commander-in-Chief. It also asks the question, is wanting to have a beer with someone reason enough to elect him? What if he's really, really hot?This wildly entertaining 90-minute show is perfect for comedic actors and singers, with minimal dancing required. BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson is an actor driven rather than design-dependent musical; it encourages breaking the fourth wall, audience participation, and rocking out!

A FEW GOOD MEN
Town & Gown Players
2/8-2/17/2013
A Few Good Men, a play by Aaron Sorkin, was acclaimed on Broadway and was subsequently made into a successful film in 1992. It tells the story of military lawyers at a court-martial who uncover a high-level conspiracy when a rookie Navy lawyer is assigned to defend two Marines on trial for the murder of one of their platoon members. He expects a plea-bargain, and a cover-up of what really happened. But, prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in doing so, the play raises the questions of what it means to have honour, dignity and humanity in an increasingly complex world.

JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT (MEGAMIX)
Savannah Theatre Project
2/8-2/17/2013
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. This version of JOSEPH?DREAMCOAT features extended songs and dances. The Megamix is available as a separate rental with this version. Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

FREE TO BE... YOU AND ME
Valdosta State University
2/1-3/22/2013
Marlo Thomas conceived a children's book that, instead of telling boys and girls who they should be, would open them to the possibilities of who they could be. She gathered many of her supremely talented friends from various worlds of the arts and the remarkable result is highly regarded as a modern classic of children's literature. Life-enhancing themes are imaginatively blended with music and humor to expand children's personal horizons, enabling them to invent their own futures without limitation, while dispelling some old constraints and worn-out conventions in the process. Parents, teachers and other grown-up friends will delight in sharing this extraordinary and memorable experience with the children in their lives.From the Book `Free To Be... You And Me`; Conceived By Marlo Thomas & and Friends; Contributions by Judy Blume & Dan Greenberg & Carol Hall & Sheldon Harnick & Bruce Hart & Edward Kleban & Elain Laron & Stephen Lawrence & Betty Miles & Shelley Miller & Carl Reiner & Mary Rodgers & Shel Silverstein & Peter Stone & Charlotte Zolotow; Adaptation Written for the Stage by Douglas Love and Regina Safran
