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

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.
