Atlanta favorite Libby Whittemore puts a cabaret spin on the season in Ho, Ho, Home for the Holidays, the annual holiday installment of her acclaimed Libby's at the Express series. With her gorgeous voice and unique showmanship, Whittemore sings best-loved Christmas songs, accompanied by Robert Strickland and his Super-Sized Combo. As an added bonus, Connie Sue Day -- "The 31st Lady of Country Music" -- will also take the stage. Combining powerhouse vocals and hilarious homespun comedy, Day is a perennial favorite with numbers like "Twelve Days of a White Trash Christmas." (She's also Whittemore's alter-ego.) Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
The 2012 Festival Line-Up includes:
Evelyn in Purgatory by Topher Payne, director Betty Hart
Five public school teachers are caught in the limbo of the disciplinary "Rubber Room," waiting for their cases to be heard and their fates decided. Poignant and funny, it’s like The Breakfast Club for teachers, as they share secrets with each other and begin to look into their own hearts. Winner of the 2012 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award.
Bat-Hamlet by Jordan Pulliam, director Peter Hardy
What if Shakespeare had conceived the melancholy Dane as a costumed crime fighter? The worlds of comic books and the Bard of Avon come together in this hilarious mash-up, a tale of murder and revenge, poetry and BAM! SOCK! POW!
The Local, director Ellen McQueen
A collaborative theatre project about the City of Atlanta, by the writers of Atlanta, developed and directed by the award-winning director of Ice Glen and Sally and Glen at the Palace. A similar project is happening in Tampa, Florida, and Essential Theatre has plans to reach out to theatres around the country to eventually make this a nationwide phenomenon.
All shows are suggested for audiences ages 18 and older.
