Due to unforeseen visa delays, all performances of Nosferatu have been CANCELLED. The center hopes to have Bob Théátre perform later this season.
Based on Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, the German expressionist vampire horror film “Nosferatu” was released in 1922. Over the years the classic film has inspired a number of films, books, and theatrical interpretations. France’s Theatre Bob company has put their own unique spin on the tale, and has done so using puppets. The play will be featured this weekend at The Center for Puppetry Arts. Their executive director Vince Anthony sat down with WABE’s Lois Reitzes for a chat about the show.
Paste Magazine’s Kevin Keller stops by to tell us what’s happening this weekend in Atlanta’s independent music scene.

On July 6th, 1864, some three years and three months after the start of the American Civil War, a Union general by the name of William Tecumseh Sherman rode his horse “Sam” up the side of one of the southernmost foothills of the lower Appalachians. He was about 9 miles northwest of Atlanta, and from the summit he could see the church spires of a town which he and his troops would soon leave in ruins. The spot where Sherman viewed the distant target was and is Vinings Mountain. We visited that very spot with local historian Tony Doyle, author of Vinings Revisited.
