jesus-christ-superstar-poshdealzAtlanta Lyric Theatre’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar will be at the Cobb Civic Center’s Anderson Theatre from April 7-23, 2017.

Per the summary: “It seems especially fitting that the first rock opera, created as a concept album at the end of the turbulent ’60s, should have at its center a social and political rebel. Jesus’ meteor-like rise in renown provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. As his radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart.”

The Temple Bombing will be at the Alliance Theatre from February 22-March 12, 2017, and it has all of the ingredients for a powerful evening at the theatre.

Here’s the quick summary: “On October 12, 1958, a bundle of dynamite blew through the wall of Atlanta’s oldest synagogue. Following 1954’s Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Rabbi Rothschild of The Temple had become a public advocate for the progress of Civil Rights. The explosion and national support for The Temple community bolstered Atlanta city leaders’ resolve to investigate and prosecute the crime, paving the way for dramatic social change. The Temple Bombing, inspired by the award-winning book The Temple Bombing by Melissa Fay Greene, is a world premiere presented on the occasion of The Temple’s 150th anniversary. This theatricalization celebrates a city that came together in the face of hatred to live the lessons of the Civil Rights era, lessons that still resonate 58 years after that fateful day.”

magic-negro-hertz-goldstarThe Magic Negro and other Blackity Blackness, as told by an African-American Man who also happens to be Black, will be on the Alliance Theatre’s Hertz Stage from March 24-April 15, 2017. Not only does it look like a fun night out at the theatre, but you can score ticket deals, some with no coupon code required.

Here’s the quick summary: “This hilarious one-man show by Dad’s Garage’s Mark Kendall–also a leader in Atlanta’s growing African-American comedy network–shows a performer at war with himself. Dissecting common themes in representations of the African-American experience, Mark makes us laugh and ask ourselves why we are laughing. From race cards to white flight, Aunt Jemima, and even Black Jesus—you will laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh. This subversive show is the reason Atlanta artists are defining African-American comedy today. The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness was developed by the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab and is the first project from the Lab to receive a full production on the Hertz Stage.”

  • While they last, you can get discount tickets to select performances of The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness, thanks to a deal on Goldstar. As of today (February 22), the deal is available for performances on March 24 & 25, 2017.

Y’all. The Clermont Lounge has been closed since the beginning of the year (renovations due to the hotel moving in above ’em), and it’ll be at least a few more weeks until it reopens. As a result, Blondie & the other dancers have been out of work for quite a while now, and they’re a bit strapped for cash while they wait to get back to work.

To help tide them over, head to Austell on Sunday, February 26, 2017, for the Clermont Lounge Girls Car & Bike Wash Fundraiser, organized by B3 Bar and Grill, along with the Big Casino Carlos Bickers and JB Walker.

From 1:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., there’ll be live music by JB & Rob Grater, a car & bike wash, & the opportunity to meet the Clermont Lounge crew. FYI–Blondie will be there. And though her beer-crushing skills are legendary, no promises re: her car-washing skills reaching the same heights. Still, this is an awesome opportunity to support the folks that make this Atlanta institution epic.

B3 Bar and Grill is located at 2523 Veterans Memorial Highway SW, Austell.
