Approval Junkie

Alliance Theatre

Until April 24, 2019

Perhaps best known as a regular on NPR's news-based panel show 'Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!' as well as host of pop culture TV show PBS Science Goes To The Movies, Faith Coley Salie released 'Approval Junkie: Adventures in Caring Too Much' in 2017. The media personality returns to her home city to present a brand new one-woman memoir based on the daring compilation of essays, bringing her laugh-out-loud, often tender recollections of the turbulent emotional waters of adolescence and adulthood to the stage for a strictly limited run in the spring of 2019.

John Cusack

Atlanta Symphony Hall

Closed April 19, 2019

Join John Cusack for a special screening of his seminal 2000 movie High Fidelity, followed by a Q&A where you can quiz the actor on the experience of movie making. Based on the book by Nick Hornby, it was something of a pet project for Cusack, who went about gaining the rights and moving the action from North London to his hometown of Chicago, a move praised by the Hornby who said 'at times, it appears to be a film in which John Cusack reads my book.'

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra - Elgar Cello Concerto at 100

Atlanta Symphony Hall

April 25 - 27, 2019

2019 marks the centenary of Elgar's autumnally gorgeous Cello Concerto and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will celebrate in style with a recital led by the talents of British up and comer and 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year Sheku Kanneh-Mason. 'It's every cellist's dream to play this piece,' he has said before, and we predict it will be just as wonderful experience to hear his interpretation.

Ride the Cyclone Poster

Ride the Cyclone

Alliance Theatre

May 1 - 26, 2019

A fatal accident on a rollercoaster at the Wonderville theme park leaves the Saint Cassian High School Chamber Choir stuck in limbo where the mysterious Karnack, a fortune-telling automaton, allows them one chance each to win the ultimate prize - a second shot at life. Highly inventive, blackly comic and brimming with 13 original songs, this brand new musical from Jacob Richmond and Brooke Maxwell will make its Atlanta premiere in Spring 2019 on the newly opened Coca Cola Stage of the Alliance Theatre.
