The Waffle Palace: Smothered, Covered and Scattered 24/7/365 by Atlanta playwrights Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee is back at Horizon Theatre Company in Little Five Points starting Friday, January 11, 2013. Called “indelible zaniness” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the world premiere production played to sold out houses last summer.
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 encore production even better than before.
The Waffle Palace will have an open run starting January 11, 2013. Performances are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 3 PM and 8:30 PM, and Sunday at 5 PM. Tickets start at $20. Tickets and information are available at 404.584.7450 or horizontheatre.com.
