  • Dates: Now - April 22, 2018
  • Location: Fox Theatre
  • Broadway's hilarious, Tony-nominated musical is here in Atlanta for the weekend and I'm telling you, it is incredibly funny. The Bottoms Brothers set out on a Renaissance-inspired exploration to create something that no Shakespeare has created before--a musical. Can they do it? Grab your tickets to find out. Also check out my thoughts on it!


  • P!nk 
  • Date: April 21, 2018
  • Location: Philips Arena
  • Recently named People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman of 2018, P!nk brings her extravagant show to Philips Arena this Saturday. Have you ever seen a P!nk show? No? Do yourself a favor and go. It's like a mix between a Cirque show and a rock concert. It's fabulous. You've still got time to grab your tickets here!



  •  Freaky Friday! At the Horizon Theatre
  • Dates: Now - April 22, 2018
  • Location: Horizon Theatre
  • Based on the class movie, this contemporary adaption is a fun and zany look into the lives of a seemingly imperfect family. With all original music and a script that will hit home, Freaky Friday should definitely be on your must-see list this weekend. I spoke with two of the great actresses portraying this tumultuous mother-daughter relationship, Jennifer Alice Acker (Katherine) and Abby Holland (Ellie), and they are ready for you to #GetYourFreakOn. Tickets are on sale here! Don't miss it.



Don't you dare pass up these events this weekend! Avoid the "munchies," please.
