BREAK! The Urban Funk Spectacular
@ The Fox Theatre   Saturday May 7th 8:00pm

A distinctive American art form with hazy African roots that run deep through the streets of inner cities, Hip Hop defies easy definition. Comprised of five elements - Dance, MC (or "rap"), DJ, Graffiti, and Fashion - each component is improvised and recombined in a myriad of rhythms and styles so that Hip Hop reinvents itself continually.

The Rivals
@ New American Shakespeare Tavern   thru Tuesday, May 29
"Lead the way and we'll precede." You asked for it. After years of requests, The Tavern is delighted to bring this masterpiece of Restoration Comedy to life- including the famous Mrs. Malaprop herself.

Irish genius Sheridan takes hilariously accurate aim at London society's pretentiousness and semi-literacy in a smash hit that has had more revivals than Elvis. Don't miss out on all of the fun! $10 Preview May 6.

2005 Sweet Auburn Springfest
  MAY 6-8
The Sweet Auburn Springfest has grown into the largest Street Festival in the Southeast. Over 350,000 to 500,000 people traditionally attend this family oriented alcohol free event.
