From December 8-24, 2017, The Alliance Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol returns to Atlanta. We’ve seen the show a couple of times, and we love it. It’s a charming adaptation of the classic tale and a fun addition to the holiday to-do list.

If you head out in 2017, don’t go to the Woodruff Arts Center to see it. The Alliance Theatre’s performance space is being renovated, so you’ll need to head to the Cobb Energy Centre to see it this season.

If you’re planning to see the Alliance Theatre’s A Christmas Carol this season, you can save:

The Cobb Energy Centre, located at 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta.

Cirque du Soleil’s Luzia: A Waking Dream of Mexico will be at the Grand Chapiteau at Atlantic Station through November 19, 2017.

Cirque du Soleil’s productions never cease to amaze me–the gorgeous costuming and choreography make each show feel like a work of art, and I remain in awe of the complex circus arts the performers manage to pull off night after night. I’m looking forward to seeing the dreamworld they create for Luzia. Per the summary: “Step right up into the Grand Chapiteau at United Center and discover the surreal world of Luzia, where an imaginary Mexico springs to life to the soundtrack of brassy Mexican and Latin American sounds. Inspired by the cultural richness of Mexico, Cirque du Soleil’s new big-top show Luzia features original music written for a live acoustic setting mixed with the electro-pop of Nortec Collective’s Bostich + Fussible. Catch Luzia–a combination of the Spanish words luz (light) and lluvia (rain), two elements at the heart of the show–on the Atlanta stop of its world tour.”
