AJC Theatre Reviewer Applauds Vintage Hitchcock: 


Says It Has Put the Legacy Theatre On the National Map


     In recent times Atlanta has been paying ever more attention to the burgeoning Southside arts scene.  The latest example of this pertains to the Legacy Theatre, which is located in the Fayette County city of Tyrone and which is owned and run by Mark and Bethany Smith of the Coweta County city of Newnan.  And the occasion is the world premiere of Joe Landry's Vintage Hitchcock.


     In today's Altanta Journal-Constitition Theatre Reviewer Wendell Brock has high praise both for Landry's play and for its performance by the Legacy.  The full review can be read on the Access Atlanta site:  http://www.accessatlanta.com/blogs/content/shared-blogs/accessatlanta/atlarts/.   It concludes with these words:  the 3-year-old Legacy Theatre puts itself on the national map with an exciting premiere that exploits the aural magic of this tingly film auteur.


     Information on the Legacy Theatre is found on its website www.thelegacytheatre.org


     High kudos are in order for Mark and Bethany Smith and for Joe Landry and for the cast and other theatrical personnel which have made this great triumph possible, which has brought great honor to the Southside arts scene!  If we were living in the Middle Ages we would exult magna cum laude !!
