BOGO for “Forever Plaid”
Theater outside the perimeter? Yes! The Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta is known for hosting some great performances. Next up is “Forever Plaid,” a play about four men struggling to make it as a harmony group in the pre-Beatles days of the early 60’s. One catch — they’re dead. I’m told the show is hilarious and is filled with beautiful harmonies reminiscent of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The best part is that tickets are buy one, get one free when purchased by phone or in person during regular box office hours today and Friday. To buy tickets, call 770-293-0080 or stop by the box office between 9 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-4 p.m. at 117 North Park Square in Marietta. The show runs today through Saturday, Feb. 6, at 8 p.m.
BOGO at Laughing Skull Lounge
They call it the War on Stupid, and that is more than enough to pique my interest. Combine the concept with comedy and I’m sold. Laughing Skull Lounge is the home for the show this weekend (no show on Sunday due to the Super Bowl), featuring two comedians and a theologian covering government to religion and everything in between. The show is 8 p.m. tonight when tickets are $15, and at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 and Saturday, Feb. 6 when tickets are $20. It features Tom Simmons, Marty Tinglehoff and Marshall Chiles. You’ll need to be on the email list to get this coupon and bring it with you to get the BOGO discount.
Free Museum admission
Getting cabin fever? Get out of the house and into one of the area museums that are free on Saturday and Sunday for Bank of America cardholders. The High Museum, Millennium Gate and the Atlanta History Center all have free admission this weekend if you present a BoA credit card or debit card, along with a photo identification. The High Museum is half-off tonight through extended hours, as it is every Thursday, and free on Saturday to Fulton County residents with proper identification.
