True Colors Theatre Company has staged all three parts of playwright Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit Trilogy. Its Paradise Blue, set in a 1940s blues club, runs through October 20 at the Southwest Arts Center with a cast that includes some of Atlanta’s best, namely Cynthia D. Barker and Enoch Armando King.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a Horizon Theatre / Aurora Theatre co-pro, is a stirring, award-winning piece of theater. Brandon Michael Mayes, who’s new to Atlanta and plays the autistic Christopher, renders the teen vividly and with dignity. The drama is at Horizon through October 27 (and at Aurora after the first of the year).
Last call for Skintight at Actor’s Express. The comedy from playwright Joshua Harmon (Significant Other, Bad Jews) — about love, lust and a birthday reunion for a dysfunctional family — closes Sunday. The cast includes Chris Kayser and Wendy Melkonian.
