GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Going for Goosebumps -- guest blogger Jude

I LOVE live theater. I'm definitely in it for the goosebumps. You can laugh and cry at home, but tingles only come from seeing it live. Grey Gardens, Actor's Express 22nd season opener, was amazing. What a crazy concept to make it a musical from Jackie O's eccentric relatives demise, but it worked and was tremendously entertaining. Act I takes place on the day of Little Edie's engagement. Mother Edie drives the Kennedy boy away (Joe). Both Edies and the house go downhill in Act II. Special treat were a young Lee and Jackie Bouvier. A former AE intern was in the audience using one of her season tickets, awarded to each intern for the next season (great idea). Check out the rest of AE's season at www.actors-express.com.
