What’s Hot on the Theater Scene As curtains rise on this year’s performing arts season, local artistic directors took time to share the not-to-be-missed highlights of the new season along with their favorite places to go around their theaters. BY KAREN LOPEZ

TOM KEY Artistic Director Theatrical Outfit The beginning and end of my farewell season are true showstoppers. We open with “Our Town” and “The Laramie Project” playing in rep together -- 10 actors, two directors and one set. It will be the first time that these two shows will be seen together in repertory, making for a theatrical event not to be missed. And, closing out the season, I will take the stage for the return of “Cotton Patch Gospel.” This classic musical has been given a fresh update and is truly the story that the world needs today. A favorite place to go around the theater: Aamar Indian Cuisine! Located right next to the theatre, it is the perfect spot for a pre- or post-show meal. I dream of their chicken tikka masala daily. Tell them Tom says HELLO when you go! Check out the schedule: www.theatricaloutfit.org

SUSAN V. BOOTH Jennings Hertz Artistic Director Alliance Theatre We have two new musicals that should be on folks’ can’t-miss list. “Becoming Nancy”

is a world premiere led by Broadway legend Jerry Mitchell (“Kinky Boots,” “Pretty Woman,” “Hairspray”) that is just a giant joy-bomb about finding your own voice, your own tribe and your own spotlight. “Maybe Happy Ending,” making its American premiere, is kind of a love story between two almost-human robots who maybe figure out the way to live fully and love truly. Maybe. It’s the “you have to see this so we can talk about it” show of the season. A favorite place to go around the theater: I am a very happy regular at The Lawrence -- great food, great vibe and the coolest wait staff in Midtown. Check out the schedule: www.alliancetheatre.org

KEVIN GILLESE Artistic Director Dad’s Garage Theatre Company TheatreSports! It’s our Saturday 10:30 p.m. show and has been running since 1995 when Dad’s Garage first started. It’s the longest running comedy show in the city and is a lot like “Whose Line is it Anyway?” with short improv games. And our mainstay “Wrath of Con II” about experiences going to Dragon Con, which runs Thursdays through Saturdays, is ALWAYS fun! Favorite places to go around the theater: My number one favorite is Amazza for great pizza. It’s right next door, and they also have great cocktails and staff. For people looking for Asian food on the BeltLine, Hawkers is just a five-minute walk from the theater. Check out the schedule: www.dadsgarage.com

JAMIL JUDE Artistic Director Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company I am excited about our theme this season --- “She Griots,” which celebrates black women storytellers. All of our plays this season will be either written by or will have casts solely comprised of black women. “Marie & Rosetta” will feature all black women – from creative and cast to costume and prop

22

ATLANTA.NET

designers. “School Girls; or, the African Mean Girls Play” in February is the funniest show to hit Atlanta in a long time. Favorite places to go around the theater: My favorites are Baltimore Crab & Seafood and Gocha’s Breakfast Bar. Since we don’t have a lot of places to eat near the theater, we are going to invite food trucks to come in, and we’re also offering a free glass of wine to theater guests on Wednesdays. Check out the schedule: www.truecolorstheatre.org

HEIDI S. HOWARD Artistic Director 7 Stages This season is about boldly living our truth. From education to shows, our programming examines the reflections of our pretty sides and monsterous sides - which everyone has - and the extremes that divide us. Our first show “Boys in Trouble” created by my good friend Sean Dorsey and his San Francisco dance company, explores misconceptions of gender, love and shame. “Collective Rage” our main show at the end of the season, delves into the spectrum of rage along the range of female identities and is so funny and absurdly beautiful. Favorite places to go around the theater: Java Lords, a full-service bar and coffee shop connected to our building, has a rock ‘n roll vibe and offers something for everyone. Pre- and post-show, the space is always open for conversation and connection. Yacht Club is a staple in Little Five Points and has forever been like family. Check out the schedule: www.7stages.org

RUTH’S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE CENTENNIAL PARK This downtown institution is a safe bet for a stellar dinner before a show at the nearby Theatrical Outfit. Located inside the Embassy Suites Hotel, the restaurant offers stunning views of Centennial Olympic Park and an expansive patio. From the petite 8 oz. filet to the 40 oz. porterhouse, plus sides like sweet

potato casserole, roasted Brussel sprouts, and creamy garlic mashed potatoes, this is the spot for a classic steak dinner. Not a carnivore? Ruth Chris offers various seafood options as well as a vegetarian plate. www.ruthschris.com

SOUTH CITY KITCHEN - MIDTOWN Take in a show at the Alliance Theatre, located at the Woodruff Arts Center, and enjoy a beautiful updated southern spread at South City Kitchen - Midtown. The restaurant’s refined, yet down-to-earth atmosphere draws business diners, couples and families. Nibble on biscuits, cornbread and house-made honey butter or indulge in the signature She-Crab Soup. Then, loosen your belt and order the Shrimp and Geechie Boy Grits, or go a little old school with the Smokey Grilled Pork Chop, updated with Tuscan kale, peanut romesco and creole mustard glaze. Finish with the sticky-sweet pineapple upside down cake. www.midtown.southcitykitchen.com

PORTER BEER BAR

Located in the heart of eclectic Little Five Points, Porter Beer Bar is just two blocks away from the neighborhood’s contemporary 7 Stages Theatre. Get here early, because the restaurant doesn’t take reservations and is popular with the pre-show crowd. It’s easy to see why, because its selection of nearly 800 bottled and draft beers--primarily micro-brews and small imports. Plus the cozy vibe, hand-crafted wooden booths, and exposed brick will transport you to a small town European pub. And, the beer isn’t the only draw here. From starters like the salt and vinegar popcorn and fully loaded mac n’ cheese made with homemade beer and cheddar pub cheese, to the popular double smash burger with two Painted Hills Farm beef patties, pastrami pork belly, and bacon marmalade, you won’t leave hungry. Bonus: All food items come with recommended beer pairings. www.theporterbeerbar.com

SHOPPING

Atlanta is chock-full of stores we can find in many cities, and thank goodness for that. Even better, Atlanta also claims a fair share of stores you won’t find elsewhere. Take a look at these Atlanta-only shopping opportunities. BY CAROL CARTER

MIAMI CIRCLE This small shopping area is a favorite of Atlantans in the know. Located in south Buckhead, Miami Circle is the Atlanta headquarters for home décor, art, antiques, even a popular restaurant. Among galleries nestled here are Bill Lowe Gallery, Pryor Fine Art, Reinike Gallery and Thomas Deans Fine Art. Find antiques at shops that include William Word Antiques, Dearing Antiques and Foxglove Antiques and Galleries. You may purchase rugs here, as well as lighting, flooring, furniture and more. When you’ve spent your limit, stop in at Eclipse Di Luna for tapas and cocktails. www.miamicircleshops.com

PARIS ON PONCE

Foxglove Antiques & Galleries at Miami Circle

SPORTS Atlanta Falcons Home Opener Kickoff Rally at Atlantic Station

Fall Sports Central The air is cool and so is the sports vibe in Atlanta. A hefty lineup is filled to the brim with baseball, basketball, football and more! Here are some of the must-see happenings. BY WENDY BOWMAN

ATLANTA BRAVES As the 2019 regular season draws to a close at SunTrust Park, the city’s Major League Baseball team continues to present a full roster of exciting promotions and special themed games. Among the most notable are a duo of ticket packages, including College Night — with attendees receiving a cobranded Braves hat to herald the return of football during several evenings in September — and Día de Los Bravos Day (Sept. 6) — which celebrates Hispanic culture with a sugarskull bobblehead at the game versus the Washington Nationals. Yet more fun activities include a Hank Aaron bobblehead for the first 15,000 fans to enter the gates for the Sept. 17 showdown versus the Philadelphia Phillies — to commemorate the 50th anniversary of

Aaron leading the Braves to capture the NL West Division title in 1969 — and the final Kids Gate Giveaway (Sept. 22) during the last regular-season home game against the San Francisco Giants, when the first 5,000 kids 14 and younger through the gates will receive a Two Bit the Drill mini-bobblehead. As an extra treat: World-famous DJ and electronic dance music producer Steve Aoki will perform a concert (free with game ticket) Sept. 1 following the matchup with the Chicago White Sox. www.braves.com

ATLANTA FALCONS The city’s NFL team opens the regular season at home at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with a nationally televised matchup Sept. 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles. On the Friday before the game (Sept. 13), head to the Falcons Home Opener Kickoff Rally at nearby Atlantic Station for performances by the cheerleaders, Freddie Falcon and the Brotherhood of the Beat, along with live music, kid’s games, the MBS food truck, fireworks and more. Be sure to look for the Bird Gang out and about in the community

as part of the new Street Team, whose mission is to excite and engage fans and communities throughout metro Atlanta. A few of the events where you can catch them during September and October include the ONE Music Festival (Sept. 7-8), Atlanta Pride Festival (Oct. 12-13) and Taste of Atlanta (Oct. 19-20). www.atlantafalcons.com

ATLANTA HAWKS The team is set to tip off the 2019-20 NBA preseason under head coach Lloyd Pierce at State Farm Arena Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. against the New Orleans Pelicans, with a run at a spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs squarely in their sights. Fans can look forward to a roster filled with returning players including 2019 MTN DEW ICE Rising Stars Trae Young and John Collins, plus 2019 NBA Draft Top 10 picks De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish. While at the arena, be sure to take in the venue’s new state-of-theart look as well — the main reason for the club’s recent No. 1 ranking in “Overall Game Experience” among all teams in a recent NBA Game Experience Survey. www.hawks.com
