7 Stages juggles
7 Stages, the long-time Little 5 Points theater, has announced that it will reschedule two shows from the current season to accommodate ongoing building renovations.
Teo Castellanos’ new work of social commentary, “Fat Boy” (originally scheduled for Feb. 2-12), and the season-closing “Dracula: The Rock Opera” (originally April 19-May 13), will both move to the 2012-13 season so that a new roof and a HVAC system can be installed in the spring. As a result, current season tickets will be honored through December.
“We want to produce shows, not build roofs,” 7 Stages artistic director Del Hamilton said in a statement. “But we realize these facility improvements will only help us grow as an organization.”
The world premiere of “Hidden Man,” a drama based on the friendship between gay artist Robert Sherer and his mentor, famed folk artist the Rev. Howard Finster, will be presented March 8-25, as previously announced. 404-523-7647, www.7stages.org. HOWARD POUSNER
