[singlepic id=149 w=320 h=240 float=] Last summer, Horizon Theatre staged the world premiere of The Waffle Palace: Smothered, Covered and Scattered 24/7/365 by Atlanta playwrights Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee. Called “indelible zaniness” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the audience favorite is back for an encore production.
The play, based on real life events at Waffle House restaurants, is a rollercoaster of humor and imagination following John Pickett and his staff as they battle to keep their Midtown diner open against heavy odds. The ensemble features playwright Larry Larson as diner owner John Pickett and six other Atlanta actors playing a variety of roles from garbage men to drag queens, all with their own special Waffle Palace connections. Larson and Lee have tweaked the story and script over the last few months to make the remount production even better than before.
The Waffle Palace began an open run on January 11. Performances are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8:00pm, Saturday at 3:00pm and 8:30pm, and Sunday at 5:00pm. Tickets start at $20. Tickets and information are available at 404-584-7450 or at The Waffle Palace is a recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award.
