"Once in a season--if you're lucky--you're knocked off the little chair of Expectation and spilled into the aisle of Astonishment."
This is how The Atlanta Journal/Constitution began it's review of Actor's Express' 1991 world premiere musical about San Francisco's first openly gay city supervisor, which went on to say, "This season's mini-tornado is The Harvey Milk Show ."
In celebration of the 1996 Olympic Arts Festival, Actor's Express known as Atlanta's "inventive and reliably entertaining theatre company" (Creative Loafing) is reviving The Harvey Milk Show for five performances during the Olympics.
Written by Atlanta natives, Dan Pruitt and Patrick Hutchison, the two-act musical reveals the ascension, election and assassination of Harvey Milk.
Performances run on the Second Stage of the 14th St. Playhouse, July 12-16, 8 PM. Tickets are $20, and are available by calling (404) 224-1835, the same number to call for an Olympic Arts Festival brochure.
