Theatrical Outfit proudly announces the dynamic 2018-2019 Season of Beauty, which includes: The Book of Will, America’s most-produced living playwright and Georgia native Lauren Gunderson’s love letter to theatre’s timeless superstar, Will Shakespeare; The Royale, Marco Ramirez’s stylized, blazingly theatrical look at the high stakes, segregated world of boxing at the turn of the twentieth century based on the true story of fighter Jack Johnson; the return of our sparkling holiday smash hit Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley by Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon; Lee Hall’s The Pitmen Painters, a humorous tale of character over class in the British mining community and high society art circles set between the World Wars; I Love to Eat, Pulitzer Prize nominee James Still’s salty culinary voyage around the world of love, life, and comfort food starring Atlanta stage vet William S. Murphey as celebrity chef James Beard; Five Guys Named Moe, an exuberant musical overflowing with hit songs by R&B pioneer Louis Jordan; the return of our Unexpected Play Festival; and a jazz concert series from renowned trumpeter and vocalist Joe Gransden with special guest singers. Our 2018-2019 Season of Beauty, featuring five plays, one musical, and special events, offers something for everyone.
“To encounter beauty is to be confronted with a terrible and wonderful possibility of more. When the Ugly Duckling of the classic children’s fable first saw the Swan, he was filled with “shame and longing.” Our stories this season tell what happens when the beauty of language and meaning, physical power, love, art, taste, or friendship dare our ordinary heroes toward their extraordinary destinies. Their transformations will thrill, provoke, charm, and move us. Join us. Let Beauty ready us all together to a deeper dimension of being.”
— Tom Key, Artistic Director
