The Daughter of the Regiment  
Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre The Daughter of the Regiment
 
The Atlanta Opera invades Cobb Energy Center with their latest production, Donizetti's rollicking rom-com set among the Swiss Alps. Beloved for its comic antics, sweet romance and beautiful music, The Daughter of the Regiment revolves around Marie, a spirited and charming tomboy who's been adopted and raised by a French army company -- and who's now fallen in love with the handsome Tonio. But when Marie learns some new info about her identity, she's got to decide whether to follow her place in society or follow her heart. Soprano Andriana Chuchman stars as Marie, after recently singing the role for the Washington National Opera, and Atlanta Opera Studio alum Santiago Ballerini is set to take on the vocal challenge of Tonio (which includes a famous run of nine high-Cs). The opera's performed in French with English supertitles.
   
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels  
Jennie T. Anderson Theatre - Cobb Civic Center Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
 
The con is on at Marietta's Jennie T. Anderson Theatre! Singing swindlers, high livin' on the French Riviera, a cockeyed competition and a score by the composer of The Full Monty make Dirty Rotten Scoundrels a dynamite musical adaptation of the popular 1988 film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine. While the suave Lawrence Jameson charms wealthy women out of thousands, Freddy Benson uses pity to get free meals from the tenderhearted. In a battle for territory, the two agree to a contest: The first to wheedle $50,000 out of a beautiful heiress wins, and the entire Riviera is his and his alone. Atlanta Lyric Theatre brings you this hilarious Tony-nominated show that's sure to steal your heart.

Anthony, one of her classmates and a star player on the school's basketball team, has a problem too: He needs a partner for his English project on Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass. When this mismatched pair gets together to work on their seemingly dull homework assignment, they each begin to let their guard down and discover how much they really have in common. The touching drama of Lauren Gunderson's I and You can be enjoyed at the Hapeville Performing Arts Center.
   
King Hedley II  
Southwest Arts Center King Hedley II
 
The penultimate production in playwright August Wilson's acclaimed Pittsburgh Cycle, King Hedley II transports you to the 1980's, where you find the titular character struggling to rebuild his life. He's an ex-con peddling stolen refrigerators to save up for his own business and hopefully start anew. Desperately fighting to overcome his record, his family and a world that's against him, King spends his time trying to plant seeds in a garden where nothing can grow. This becomes the perfect metaphor for his life and his dreams, which are seemingly doomed to a violent end. True Colors Theater Company brings Wilson's dark, symbolic Pulitzer- and Tony-nominated play to the Southwest Arts Center in Atlanta.

Two iconic African-American leaders meet in a Harlem hotel room in 1965 to debate the future of the Civil Rights Movement. This charged and emotional encounter between Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X never actually happened, but playwright Jeff Stetson channels the two men's psyches and egos with rare insight and unsettling power as they argue their differing visions for nationwide change. As their no-holds-barred conversation expands and deepens, the two contrasting personalities come to learn much about one another and -- together -- discover common ground. More relevant now than ever, the powerful, award-winning drama The Meeting takes the stage at Marietta's New Theatre in the Square.
