Installation explores psychological space

THEATER
Atlanta Lyric in an Ellington mood

The new year won’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing. And what better way to get it than in Atlanta Lyric Theatre’s production of “Sophisticated Ladies,” opening Friday (Jan. 3) at the Cobb Civic Center’s Jennie T. Anderson Theatre. The revue delivers so many of the Duke Ellington classics, including “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “Satin Doll” and “In a Sentimental Mood.” Through Jan. 19. 548 S. Marietta Parkway, Marietta. 404-377-9948, www.atlantalyrictheatre.com. HOWARD POUSNER
