In the late 1960s, Dustin Hoffman transformed the idea of big-screen leading men when he parlayed his Oscar-nominated turn in The Graduate to heavier performances like Ratso Rizzo in Midnight Cowboy. With the right levels of energy and commitment, an actor you'd peg for humor could carry drama, romance and villainy.

Andrew Benator plays a similar role in Atlanta theater. Skinny, balding and...

By day, Takuro "Tak" Masuda crunches numbers as an accountant working to get his C.P.A. license. In his off-hours, he's more likely to crunch puppets and simulated body parts as an animator, filmmaker and special-effects creator.

As a member of Atlanta's Big Party High 5 film collective, Masuda has collaborated on projects such as Disabled But Able to Rock, Blake Myers' documentary about Betsy...

A little more than two years ago, dancer and choreographer Helen Hale moved back to Grant Park, the Atlanta neighborhood where she grew up. This hadn't been part of her plan. Hale had gone north to attend Temple University in Philadelphia, where she studied dance, but had been plagued by chronic shoulder dislocations.

Comedian Jamie Ward compares the stand-up stage to the rodeo ring, and he should know, having ridden two bulls for a collective 4.5 seconds at an Ohio bull-riding class. "Being in the chute in the rodeo is like being in the green room at the comedy club," Ward says. "You nod to the bull handler that you're ready, or you step into the spotlight on stage ... and then you're so aware of everything... | more...

When an artist uses a camera to make art, it usually qualifies her as a photographer. By that rubric, describing Atlanta-based artist Nikita Gale as a "photographer" is technically accurate but misses the point.

Young film director Eric Haviv and his colleagues at Atlanta's FUGO Studios had a simple goal when they entered the 48 Hour Film Project for the first time in 2010: silence.

At FUGO's pristine office near Midtown Promenade, Haviv recalls the team's approach to the made-in-two-days short film. "We noticed that many people try making dramas for the contest, but they unintentionally turn into...

A few months ago, the Atlanta Book Exchange closed after 35 years of buying and selling used books. The store had been tucked into an old cottage on North Highland Avenue, like a musty altar to literature, forgotten by the endless line of customers waiting for popsicles on the nearby corner. Publisher's Weekly ran an obituary. It was just the latest closing in what seems like an endless... | more...
