The Geldings takes its title from an aptly named band of brothers. Handsome Flem (Rob Beams), Fat Floss (Marty Aikens) and Forlorn Ross (the scene-stealing Rachel Craw) Gelding are rootin', tootin' ranch hands straight from Central Casting of a Wild West show. Only all three of them are anatomically incorrect.

Having its world premiere at Jack in the Black Box Theatre Company, The Geldings...

There's probably no gentle way to say that Aurora Theatre's Christmas Canteen would make great cruise ship entertainment, but there it is. The seventh annual production of the holiday revue efficiently delivers more than 40 songs in whole or part, while keeping everything too mild and wholesome to offend — or even surprise — any part of its audience.

Canteen takes place at a USO...

On the morning of Sept. 12, 2001, many Americans awoke from a night filled with "what's next" scenarios to a forwarded e-mail from an Afghan American coming to grips with what occurred just hours earlier.

The e-mail — emphatically stating that Osama bin Laden did not represent the Afghan people — was originally sent to just 20 friends of the author and quickly forwarded to...

Loss of innocence, rage, pride in institutions like the flag and the noble labor of firemen — all of these issues and more are addressed in True Colors: Meditations on the American Spirit at SunTrust Plaza Gallery. The post-Sept. 11 omnibus struggles to capture the cataclysmic philosophical shift that occurred for Americans in the wake of the terrorist attacks.

Imagine an enchanted land where dervish volcanoes groan Gregorian chants, steel birds thunder in a drum-filled sky and raindrops fall on welded trees with polyphonic leaves of resonant slate.

Entry into someone else's home is entry into an alien universe, where the smells, the furnishings, the pictures on the wall are uncanny and unfamiliar.

Weathering Time, a multimedia installation about home at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, bridges that gap between a familiar idea of home and a strange, unfamiliar one. It is an invitation to occupy, for a moment, another person's home in...

All's Well That Ends Well is one of Shakespeare's "problem plays," so called because they aren't easily labeled as either comedy or tragedy. Currently staged by the Shakespeare Tavern, All's Well focuses so much on unhealthy relationships that it might fit most comfortably with the modern self-help genre, alongside books with titles like Women Who Love Too Much (And the Men Who Ignore Them).... | more...

Small Deaths is a troubling fugue on a parent's worst nightmare. It fixates on the unspoken paradox of childrearing — that nothing brings you so close to life, and so close to an awareness of death. The solo show from Atlanta's Joseph Peragine — comprised of two large-scale paintings, an animated short video and small paintings drawn from the video — explores new territory for... | more...

Synchronicity Performance Group's staging of Three Sisters plays tourist in Chekhov's Russia and only rarely stumbles across the real thing. Director Rachel May and her ensemble fare fine with the kind of two-role exchanges in which emotional connections are either thrillingly made or tragically lost. But the more crowded moments, the kind that convey the playwright's worldview and way of life,... | more...

In the comedy Red Herring, most jokes are hopelessly corny: "Do you know how to make a stiff drink?" "Feed him salty snacks." At least they have the ring of authenticity, as the action takes place in 1952, and playwright Michael Hollinger offers a painstakingly crafted pastiche of a second-tier comedy from the era. The enthusiastic cast of the production at Theatre in the Square's Alley Stage... | more...

Suppose you're assembling one of Atlanta's largest annual literary events for a respected suburban community group. Suppose you book a former TV star who's now touring with his new photography collection. And suppose said star then gets embroiled in a minor controversy, when a similar group in another city unceremoniously cancels his appearance due to the photographs' eroticism.

What then? Do...

Blood-suckers and seed-spillers populate The Process Theatre Company's double-bill of one-act plays, "Vampire Lesbians of Sodom" and "One Hand Clapping." It's not an evening for lofty themes or lavish production values, but the ensemble embraces the material with a fittingly irreverent sense of humor.

"Lesbians," Charles Busch's 1985 drag-fest, opens "in Bible times" and introduces an immortal...

I once heard someone describe reading Chuck Palahniuk as thinking about the most shocking thing possible and having that be the next thing to happen. To be honest, though, one couldn't possibly fathom the plot changes Palahniuk comes up with.

In Lullaby, the heir apparent to Bret Easton Ellis is back with the same style of "did he really write that?" fiction. With his latest effort, Palahniuk...

You might call it a coup when a Christian theater group in a Bible Belt town mounts a show with gay subject matter and doesn't succumb to proselytizing. Sadly, Art Within's world premiere of Song of the Bow leaves only a little room for celebration. Playwright Wayne Harrel succeeds at rising above a flat Sunday school sermon, but a forced second act leaves the show somewhat unstrung.
