GFP Greater Atlanta December Theatre Listings (as of Dec 2nd)

Some highlights:

  • Holiday shows abound this month.  A slew of theatres are doing  A Christmas Carol, as listed at the top of our listings.  While many shows are classic revivals, a few are new, including The Wickhams: Christmas at Pemberley at Theatrical Outfit, an immersive Narnia at Serenbe Playhouse, and Cinnamon Grits at ART Station.
  • Want a non-holiday show?   From Dec 6th – Dec 21st, Norcross’ Live Arts Theatre is doing 20th Century Blues, a new play about survival by humor. Between ‘glass ceilings’, discrimination, societal expectations, family, career, and the trappings of everyday life; four women discover in the prime of their lives they have come further than they realized.
  • This Tuesday and Thursday (Dec 3rd and 5th), Actors Express is doing a free, developmental workshop of the the new musical F*ck7thGrade, a Rock N Roll celebration of coming out and coming of age.  Lyrics and music are by Jill Sobule, whose 1990s hits include “Supergirl” and the original “I Kissed a Girl”.
