by BWW News Desk - Jan 6, 2016

Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), North Fulton's only professional theatre company, will kick off the New Year with a play that's sure to be the cure for the post-holiday doldrums. The hilarious comedy, Charley's Aunt, will take the stage January 7th through the 24th, 2016 at the Theatre's home, the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, 950 Forrest Street, Roswell, GA. GET and Atlanta favorite David Crowe is in the directing chair to bring this time-tested comedy by Brandon Thomas to life. Says Crowe, 'At its heart Charley's Aunt is a very silly play about the very serious business of courtship. That's one of the reasons the play has been produced so much in the past hundred or so years. Falling in love sometimes requires us to bend and even break society's rules in order to live happily ever after.' This production is graciously sponsored by the Robert W. Hagan Family Foundation.

'X-Files' Actor Christopher Logan Launches Book of Top Burlesque Stars, BURLESQUE'X-Files' Actor Christopher Logan Launches Book of Top Burlesque Stars, BURLESQUE
by BWW News Desk - Jan 25, 2016

Actor Christopher Logan, Guest-Star of the upcoming X-Files episode 'Founder's Mutation' (Jan.25th) and films 'Connie and Carla', 'Saving Silverman' and 'Tron Legacy', has produced a coffee table book of top burlesque stars. 'BURLESQUE' is the follow up to 'dr.a.g.' (for dressed as girl), which celebrated top drag performers and was chosen as a VIP Gift at the Sundance Film Festival's Independent Filmmaker's Lounge both this year and last. Logan makes books to raise funding for independent film projects. 'A new way to turn a book into a movie', he quips. 'Connie and Carla' connected Logan to the drag community allowing the first book to come together. 'The drag performers were very welcoming and open to the idea. Everyone was thrilled with the final book.' After 'dr.a.g.', comes 'BURLESQUE', a 160-page large-format book, filled to the brim with stunning full-colour photography of stars Immodesty Blaize (UK), Kalani Kokonuts (Vegas), Little Miss Risk (Vancouver), LouLou D'vil (Finland), the renowned Dita Von Teese, and even a few men like The Stage Door Johnnies. 'Drag is too much fashion for one gender', says Logan. 'Burlesque is when you leave it all on the floor'. 'Exploring the diversity within a subculture allows us to see all sides of it', he says. 'These photographs speak for themselves, letting the performers showcase themselves doing what they do best, with their own signature style'. A nice bit of trivia: the book's back cover photo of Little Miss Risk was shot by Ed Araquel, who was the Stills Photographer on the X-Files shoot. 'BURLESQUE' is available at www.bookthefilm.com Cover photo by Karl Giant, Model: Meow Meow. (more...)
