How to help Atlanta's homeless, elderly, restaurant workers, animal shelters, and more
For Atlanta fans of Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone’s Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon, this week’s ice capades have proven scarier than the show’s “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream” number. With today’s temps promising to melt the last of the ice, the most-anticipated show of the current Broadway in Atlanta season at the Fox Theatre will — fingers crossed — finally get on stage tonight at 7:30 after the show’s producers scrapped Tuesday’s opening night and Wednesday’s media night performances. To accommodate things, producers have added an additional Monday 7 p.m. performance of the show, which, in turn, has snowballed into another headache. The Book of Mormon cast had set aside Monday night Feb. 3 (the show’s one dark night) to contribute their time and talent to Crush: A Valentine to the 90s, a benefit cabaret to raise money for the Atlanta meals on wheels nonprofit Open Hand and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS at the Woodruff Arts Center. The cabaret has now been cancelled and organizer Kevin Ireland says cabaret ticket holders will be contacted beginning today.
