Georgia Shakespeare in danger of closing its doors

Georgia Shakespeare in danger of closing its doors

ATLANTA -- Georgia Shakespeare has run classical theater in Metro Atlanta for more than 25 years, housed on the campus of Oglethorpe University in Brookhaven.

A letter from artistic director Richard Garner this week spoke of an urgent obstacle facing the company. Georgia Shakespeare needs to raise $150,000 by Sept. 23 or they will be forced to shut down operations. Provided they can overcome that hurdle, they still face the challenge of raising an additional $350,000 by the end of the year in order to stay afloat.

The company is seeking donations to their annual fund through their website, GeorgiaShakespeare.org.

The company was founded as a tent theater company and eventually was housed in the John A. and Miriam H. Conant Performing Center on Oglethorpe's campus.

Eco-Fabulous Explored on Beltline Tour

Eco-Fabulous Explored on Beltline Tour

The Atlanta Beltline project is a diverse 2.8 billion project to renovate neighborhoods, parks and commercial space for an area of the city that will be connected by town-car (incorporating old railroad tracks).  The project incorporates nature and neighborhood's existing materials to create a neighborhood that's "eco-fabulous", as our tour guide called it. Brian Leary, the brain behind this project was a college student who was inspired by a similar plan in Paris.

Every Friday and Saturday at 9:30AM, the Atlanta Beltline hosts a free three hour tour along this beltline that highlights the circle that the town cars will transit. Currently, this Beltline tour is reserved for the next year but I was lucky enough to find a seat, due to a cancellation.

I didn't know what to expect on these tours. When I signed up I had never imagined the tour would take three hours out of my Saturday.

The Green Room: Private Opening of Atlanta's New Actor's Lounge

The Green Room: Private Opening of Atlanta's New Actor's Lounge

Upon entrance to the Buckhead/Atlanta venue, guests and celebrities arrived  to a rolled out “green” carpet event instead of the traditional red color always present, which was a tasteful touch. A vintage Rolls-Royce adorned the entrance as well, with a grand cavalcade of photographers to catch each guest's arrival.  

A recent article here on 11Alive News, mentions how Atlanta is now becoming a staple in the movie/filming community. Since 2009, we have filmed over 700 movies and films and been host to shows appearing on MTV, VH1, Bravo, Oxygen, and AMC.

Goo Goo Dolls, Michelle Branch Make Interesting Night of Tunes

Goo Goo Dolls, Michelle Branch Make Interesting Night of Tunes

Goo Goo Dolls took to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater stage Sunday, August 7, along with Michelle Branch and Parachute.

Parachute took the stage first and played their original songs as well as the cover, "One Headlight" by the Wallflowers.

Michelle Branch started off with "Everywhere", her first major label hit. The single was from The Spirit Room and a majority of her set list consisted from this album. She did a good job at blending her new songs with her more recognizable ones. The Goo Goo Dolls had less seamless transitions between their songs but still provided a memorable set.

First, the Goos rolled out their 1998 hit, "Slide" that brought the crowd to their feet.

The Goos swayed away from their adult contemporary hits when bassist and vocalist, Robby Takac, took the lead on several, fast paced, more punk infused songs.
