My wife and I met friends to have dinner in the square and we then walked over to the Aurora for a really good play. Not the first time we have enjoyed both in Lawrenceville and it won't be the last.

We have been seeing plays at Aurora for several years. My favorite still is Les Mis (yes, they did that.) Small theatre, excellent directors, actors, can no say enough good things about it.

One of the reasons I love this theater is the fact it is my neighborhood. I don't have to drive into downtown Atl. To be honest I like the comedy nights-my fav.

The Aurora Theatre was once a small, run-of-the-mill, struggling, barely professional theater company, in Duluth. In later years, after relocating to Lawrenceville, complete with a beautiful new mainstage theater, a separate studio theater space, and a multi-level covered parking garage, they have become one of Atlanta's premiere theater destinations. They now have more than 5,000 season ticket holders, and have... More

I've been coming to the Aurora Theatre for several years. I've been here for plays along with comedy acts. Quality of the performances is always good. Adjacent parking deck is nice. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance, to visit either before or after the performance. I'll be back.

We have attended several productions here and each time we were blown away by the professional level presentations. Attending the Aurora is one of our most favorite things to do and an incredible deal on top of that!

I did not know this had been made a musical and I was wonderfully surprised. I loved it, even more than the movie. Travis was so much sexier and romantic than Clint Eastwood in my opinion. My friend and I both liked it better than the movie. Francisca's character was done beautifully-the accent-her singing - just gorgeous. Really the whole... More
