Hot Topics covers the top stories in the world of entertainment and Hollywood, from celebrity gossip to show business. This fall, Hot Topics will be hosted by Lane Carlock while the usual host, Heather Catlin, is out on maternity leave.
Lane is thrilled to perform in this dramatic comedy where two plain as-potatoes sisters of the Roman Catholic persuasion forget all about Southern charm when a peppy evangelical Christian comes to their door. “If you’re nice to them, they just keep coming back,” one sister tells the other. “They’re just like cats.”
“Remarkably entertaining 90-minute
rumination on faith and the hereafter.”
The Savannah Disputation
will be running
August 21, 2014 – September 7, 2014.
The Atlanta Artists Lab, a new-projects program designed to give metro artists a home, funding and a future will continue. Showcase performances can be seen Aug. 8-9. The Artist Lab inaugural year’s winners include:
MOXIE. Actors and writers Brian Kurlander and Lane Carlock have teamed with director-dramaturg Elisa Carlson.
Moxie is the story of an unfinished, handmade book – compiled, written, and illustrated by an American marine and father serving in Afghanistan. The Book of Moxie becomes lost when the Marine is gravely injured, and the book then travels from war-torn tribal Afghanistan, to a chic yet dilapidated Parisian apartment, on to the slums of India, and finally lands in a gritty American inner-city school. Moxie not only inspires those who come in contact with it to share their own stories, but also acts as a reminder of the power of storytelling, the potency of words, and strength of the connectedness that we all share.
