This hilarious live stage show based on the cult series of Evil Dead films has all the campy fun of the movies and the added bonus of being set to music.

This is a 4D experience, which means the front seats are the designated "Splatter Zone" and the name is not just for show. Even though general admission tickets are outside the zone, the guts and gore will be flying unpredictably, so keep that in mind when choosing your attire. The wild and gory theatrical experience comes to Marietta's Out of Box Theatre at Artisan Resource Center.

Brimming with poetic language and emotional longing, Tennessee Williams' memory play The Glass Menagerie is rightly considered a true classic, a work that's lost none of its power over the generations. Set in a Depression-era St. Louis tenement, aspiring poet Tom struggles with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home a "gentleman caller" for his painfully shy sister Laura, who escapes the world around her by obsessing over her collection of intricate glass animals. But when Tom finally produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shock waves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built may be irreparably shattered. You can experience this moving, beautiful production at Marietta's New Theatre in the Square.
"Misled from childhood, where I went astray; Till this day I still pray for a better way. Can't help but feel hopeless and heartbroke; From the start I felt the racism 'cause I'm dark." These lyrics appear on Tupac Shakur's "My Block," a song that forms the spiritual backbone of this Broadway musical that utilizes the words and music of Tupac to tell a non-biographical story about family, camaraderie, revenge, change and, ultimately, hope. The harsh realities of inner-city life remain as relevant now as they were when this show's songs -- like "Dear Mama," Me Against the World" and "Hail Mary" -- were written, and the lessons found within are profoundly important. For the first time since its Broadway debut three years ago, Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon brings Holler If Ya Hear Me to the stage at Atlanta's Southwest Arts Center.
