Jeff McKerley classes up the joint with three song-and-story-filled evenings at the Tavern, July 1, 2 & 3.
Sit back and enjoy one of Atlanta's most charismatic and award-winning entertainers as he performs numbers from past musicals (both at the Tavern and around the city) and sprinkles in some short stories and anecdotes about his song-filled life growing up in Anniston, Asheville, and Atlanta. You may hear anything from Kander & Ebb to Gilbert & Sullivan, with other favorites in between.
This is sure to be a special event with a few surprise guests and even a drinking game during one of the songs!

Bardometer Rating

How difficult is this Shakespearean play to grasp? On a scale of 1 to 10.
What does rating this mean?

You may already know the story and what happens at the end. But even if you don’t, the play is light and the plot is easy to follow. Limited violence, limited bawdiness (see below). There are very few things – historical, religious, or political – that you need to know ahead of time. Just enjoy!

A note about bawdiness in Shakespeare: It exists. Despite what your English teacher taught you, Shakespeare wrote some pretty saucy lines and they pop up from time to time. While there is never any nudity on stage, our actors are trained to make the text clear. If we feel a show contains a plethora of Graphic Elizabethan Poetry (or is very bloody/violent/triggering) we will put that disclaimer in the blurb about the show. It won’t happen often. If this Bardometer lists a play as a 1 or 2, you can rest assured that it is an appropriate show for kids under ten.
