In its 25th season, the Georgia Shakespeare theater company continually ranks as one of Atlanta's critical favorites, producing bold, stirring renditions of Shakespearean classics, as well as works by the best writers of every generation. With today's deal, slip on your summer armor and pull Excalibur out of your Toyota's engine block for the theater's family-friendly performance of T.H. White's The Legend of the Sword in the Stone, part of the Family Classics Series, which portrays the relationship between the future King Arthur and the wise wizard Merlin.
The Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) touches audiences and helps cultivate a strong artistic community through classic and contemporary shows. Under the direction of former Roswell native Don Farrell, GET's professional troupe of ribald line readers will perform a greatest-hits version of Forbidden Broadway, a Tony Honors–award recipient in 2006. For nearly three decades, audiences have sought treatment for excessively slapped knees and busted guts prompted by this constantly changing production's send up of the popular tunes and plot lines of Broadway shows past and present. Harmonizing humorists draw theater-goers to the edge of their orchestra seats with a medley of songs that roast The Lion King, Annie, Wicked, and other hits from the Great White Way.
As the inaugural concert for the Roswell Presents: True Americana series, The Travelin' McCourys' fast-paced plucking skills tickle eardrums with traditional bluegrass sounds and innovative tone tinkering. Music mavens can cease pondering what whale songs would sound like with a proper complement of backup singers, turning to the authentic sounds of a quartet comprised of mandolin strummer Ronnie McCoury, banjoist Rob McCoury, fiddle player Jason Carter, and upright-bass spinner Alan Bartram. Twenty years on the road have led to celebrated live collaborations with the Allman Brothers, Phish, and Warren Haynes, as well as many acts in and out of the bluegrass community. The group plucks their way through acoustic and sometimes electric performances, treating listeners to inventive experiments that may result in discoveries of new instruments more exciting than the keytar or acoustic stapler. Special guests The Packway Handle Band strum energetic, alternative bluegrass as well.
