The Atlanta Journal-Constitution gives Apples & Oranges an 'A'!

"For those of us have yearned to understand our brothers and sisters, even for people who don’t have siblings, Apples & Oranges will exact emotional bite — sharp, piercing, bittersweet." – Wendell Brock,Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"With its onstage talent and touching story, this play will be well worth the price of admission, and it will leave you appreciating your family all the more." – Kenny Norton,

"Apples and Oranges is undoubtedly the best thing on any Atlanta stage..." – Andrew Alexander,

Carl and his journalist sister have never seen eye to eye or been anything alike. But when he uncharacteristically asks for her help, she begins to spend more time with her odd duck of a sibling. Amid political divides, a rotating cast of girlfriends, and Carl's uniquely converted-Christian Western Manhood, Carl's sister experiences the extremes of family love. Exquisitely written by Uhry, Oscar and Pulitzer Prize recipient, and author of Driving Miss Daisy and Last Night of Ballyhoo.

Audience Feedback

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
