If you are looking for a night out on the town this fall, you don't have to head up to New York to catch some interesting theater. Whether you are interested in a musical, a drama, or a comedy, there is something for everyone in Atlanta.
Running through October 6 at the Alliance Theater, Barry Manilow's musical Harmony is the big ticket of the fall theater season in Atlanta. The show is based on a true story of a boy band in Germany whose rise to fame was interrupted by World War II. There has been extensive press around the production, with a bit of speculation that the production will eventually find its way to Broadway, so this could be your chance to see it first.
Running through September 28, this comedy at Onstage Atlanta promises to bring the laughs in a uniquely Southern style. Billed as a blend of The Glass Menagerie, Hoarders, and the Anna Nicole Smith reality show, this play stars local favorites and is directed by Atlanta theater star Topher Payne.
Venus in Fur
Running through October 6 at Actor's Express, Venus in Fur is a sexy adult drama that makes a perfect date night. It recently completed a highly successful run in New York on and off Broadway, and now the tale of bondage, power, and an actor's audition has found its way to a local stage.
The Georgia Ensemble Theater is producing Almost Heaven, a must-see for fans of musician John Denver. Running through September 22, this show is guaranteed to provide a homey, warm feeling for Denver's fans.
Horizon Theatre is offering a new play called Third Country, September 20 - October 20. This play was inspired by actual events in Clarkston, Georgia.
