Was visiting from out of state and looking for something local to do. Purchased tickets for "Freaky Friday." Horizon Theatre building is not much at all from the outside, quite worn down, and houses a variety of other businesses inside. But don't let that stop you from seeing this absolute gem. I was absolutely floored by the high quality of the acting, singing, and dancing by the large number of performers (who demonstrated amazing endurance and swiftness for wardrobe adjustments). Great live music and sets / set changes. And the opportunity to chat with the truly gracious performers after the show really made the night a triumph. Highly recommended! Support local arts - visual and performing arts! PS - Snacks and drinks are available for sale before and at intermission of performances.

Small theatre doing new and smaller plays often written by little know playwrights. They also do a new play program. Use local and regional talent. Been around for over 30 years in Atlanta. Excellent resource for the city. Only complaint - time for new seats.

Great little venue. No need to worry about where to sit because every seat is a good seat. Concessions are pretty limited as far as snacks go but they do offer wine and other drinks.

It was a small about 250 people searing theater. It was wonderful. Everyone can see a performance well. They had their own band for musical theater. I loved it.
