Hey WCLK listeners! You have four chances this weekend to see Jiréh Breon Holder's play, "Too Heavy for Your Pocket" before it goes to NYC's Roundabout Theatre Company in October. 

Georgia Ensemble Theatre

Hey #UPFRONT listeners! I have tickets for the Georgia Ensemble Theatre production of "Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First 100 Years," which is currently running now through March 5 and starring Donna Biscoe and Brenda Porter. It is also directed by Andrea Frye.  

Comedic actor Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is taking his love for comedy and scary movies and merging the two genres together for an unapologetic look at race relations in the new film, “Get Out.” The horror is his first project as writer and director and follows an African-American photographer who goes to meet the family of his Caucasian girlfriend only to find out that they are not really who they appear to be.


This week's edition of #UPFRONT is packed with more stars than ever before!!! Gaius Charles and Brooklyn Sudano open up about starring in NBC's "TAKEN" and why fans of the movie franchise are going to love the new TV version.
