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 mashup of all three films tells the story of five college students who go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash evil forces that turn them all into demons. 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.
Only precocious eight-year-olds find the prospect of being "Home Alone" at Christmas all that exciting. For those of us who are older and wiser (and still single) there's The 12 Dates of Christmas, a funny and touching one-woman show about being surrounded by holiday cheer when you're miserable. When Mary sees her fiance making out with his co-worker on national TV at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, she dumps him and drops her engagement ring into a Salvation Army kettle. She then spends the next year being set up, hooked up, strung up, and fed up as she navigates her life "alone" as a New York actor in her thirties. Renita James stars in this exceptional play that's quickly becoming a holiday tradition in its own right at Aurora Theatre.

Go on a head trip in Robert Dubac's one-man show as he portrays his voice of reason, his common sense, his inner idiot, his inner child and his inner a$$hole -- all of which try to wake him up from the coma of modern-day life. Don't miss The Book of Moron at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth.

Now Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse in Atlanta stages this chilling portrait of temptation, ambition and betrayal. Driven by a supernatural prophesy, his own ambition and an adamant partner, the Scottish general slashes his way to the throne. But just as he grasps the crown, it starts to slip through his bloody fingers.
