My, aren't we feeling cultured this week? Whether your interest lay in fine charity concerts (sorta), fine theatre (well, kind of), or the fine art of the written word, there's a little something for every lady and gentleman in Atlanta in the coming eves.
WE DON’T WANT TO MISS:
SCARLETT'S WEB AT DAD'S GARAGE
Thursday, May 19, 8 p.m.
Everyone loves seeing a beloved childhood classic twisted up and torn to shreds (pictured) by an improv group, right? We certainly do. This gory take on Wilbur's spelling adventures promises to be a bloody good time. No, really: audience members are given protective ponchos to protect them from any errant sprays. Catch it while you can -- this will be the last Thursday night showing of this theatrical gem.

TOM FRANKLIN AT THE DECATUR LIBRARY
Tuesday, May 17, 7:15 p.m.
Literary prowess isn't contagious, but if it were, you'd want to stand close to this particulary speaker. Tom Franklin, award-winning author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, graces the Decatur Library to talk about his critically acclaimed Southern novel.
