Horizon Theatre 2012 season to include 1 encore, 3 premieres
By Howard Pousner
Having come up big at Atlanta’s version of the Tonys in November, winning 10 Suzi Bass Awards including the coveted Audience Choice Award for Outstanding Season, Horizon Theatre has announced a 2012 season with one encore, two world premieres and one Southeastern one.
The Little 5 Points troupe founded in 1983 will open the year with a reprise of “Avenue Q,” this year’s 2011 hit that alone scored seven Suzis. The Broadway musical with puppets will run Jan. 13-Feb. 26.
The new plays are:
- “The Waffle Palace: Smothered, Covered, and Scattered 24/7/365,” a world premiere by actor-playwright and WMLB-AM host Larry Larson and his longtime partner in mayhem Eddie Levi Lee, May 11-June 24. The Midtown-set comedy is being billed as a “roller coaster of humor, music, and imagination.”
- “Sheddin’,” a world premiere by Thomas W. Jones II, an Atlanta-set generational comedy with a hip-hop beat, July 13-Aug. 19.
- Donald Marguiles’ Broadway drama “Time Stands Still,” with Carolyn Cook and Chris Kayser as war journalists in a relationship struggle, receives its Southeastern premiere Sept. 14-Oct. 14.
Season tickets are available. Information: 404-584-7450.
