Offensively Funny Original Musical Parody to Debut in Atlanta

Offensively Funny Original Musical Parody to Debut in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- How often is a musical rated 'O' for Offensive?  Trevor Petty, the writer and producer of this original show, thinks not often enough.  Unmasked: The Phantom of the Flopera is exactly that, hilariously and equally offensive and laugh out loud fun.  This original show comes with this warning: Unmasked is an equal opportunity offender, without regard to race, religion, gender, political affiliation or sexual orientation and has been rated "O" for “Offensive” by the Committee Against Creativity in America (CA-CA).  The show is produced by The Spirit of Broadway.

The African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement to screen 'Restless City' 4/27 at Phipps Plaza

ATLANTA --  (submitted by Terri Vismale-Morris)  AFFRM, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement, will open its third film, RESTLESS CITY, in Atlanta this Friday, April 27 at AMC Phipps Plaza.

Filmmaker Andrew Dosunmu's stunning feature directorial debut was an Official Selection at 2011 Sundance Film Festival in the NEXT category, and tells the story of an African immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City where music is his passion, life is a hustle, and falling in love is his greatest risk.

Variety explained, "The extraordinarily beautiful "Restless City" achieves revelation on two tiers -- in the kinetic landscape of the city itself and in the world of Senegalese immigrants, whose struggle evolves just beneath the sightlines of the average New Yorker. Visually, it's euphoric."  While The Hollywood Reporter called the film, "a stunning, intense twist on the American Dream."
