THEATER
Levens back to stage

Former Georgia Tech and Green Bay Packers running back Dorsey Levens, who brought the Christian drama “Torn” to the 14th Street Playhouse last year, will follow that up with “Stripped” in late July at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center for the Performing Arts.

His company, Levens Communications, and A Higher Calling Theatre Company will co-produce the play, which runs July 27-31. The play “peels away the layers of the life of professional football player Jayden Dorsey, revealing the true charge and sacrifice of being a high-profile athlete,” according to a release.

The cast includes former footballers Ryan Stewart and Karon Joseph Riley, both of whom appeared in “Torn,” as well as Lisa Wu Hartwell (”Real Housewives of Atlanta”) and Rashan Ali. Information: www.levenscommunications.com. HOWARD POUSNER
