Welcome to the first edition of Weekend Wrap! Here you'll find a list of last-chance, can't-miss shows and productions to add a little class (and sass) to your weekend plans.
Sunday, January 31st:
Brooks' Young Frankenstein
8p Friday, 2p and 8p Saturday, 1p and 6:30p Sunday
Brooks' Young Frankenstein takes its cues from the delightfully uncultivated comedy
schtick of the original 1974 film. Performed at the Fabulous Fox Theatre, Young
the story of Frederick Frankenstein, the estranged grandson of the famous
doctor, as he repeats the experiments with the aid of modern neurosurgery (and
one abnormal brain for transplant). Hilarity ensues as his lumbering,
thick-tongued brute wreaks havoc on the town.

Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales
New American Shakespeare Tavern
7:30p Friday and Saturday, 6:30p Sunday
those high school days of toiling through Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, desperately seeking the rumored
naughty bits and bawdy innuendos? The players of Atlanta's Shakespeare Tavern
certainly do and have exploited those passages to the fullest in their latest
production! This ravishingly indecent exposure results in an absolutely raucous
comedy, perfect for new and old lovers alike.
this "bawdy, medieval romp" is an utterly extraordinary rendition, kid-friendly
it certainly is not.
Sunday Afternoon at Loehmann's
Ansley Park Playhouse
famous by its open-air dressing rooms, Loehmann's has a long history of deep
discounts and even deeper discussions. Another Sunday Afternoon at
depicts the story
of the search for the perfect shoe (and the perfect man). This "love story
about shopping, shoes and the Boy Next Door" is the next hit from Peachtree
John Gibson & Anthony Morris.
this play is set in the made-famous dressing room, it offers up a bit of nudity
and undergarments. Also, The Ansley Park Playhouse is a B.Y.O.B. establishment.
