It's here. The weekend, that is. Here are our ideas for things to do. 

Carol’s Picks
Carol is the ATL Insider’s culture vulture. If there is a new exhibit in town or a new show on the stage, Carol is the first to know about it.

  • West Side Story, through Sunday, Nov. 11
    All those songs you can't get enough of plus the always heart-breaking love story (thank you William Shakespeare) is on stage and presented by the Atlanta Opera. Boo-hoo.

  • Book Festival of the MJCCA, through Nov. 18
    Love reading? Then don't miss the 45 authors appearing at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. Read on, Atlanta. 

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 5-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • Brother Coyote and Sister Fox, through Nov. 11 
    This fun bilingual puppet show shares the delightful Mexican folk story of Sister Fox and Brother Coyote and a whole lot of chickens. Don’t miss the accompanying make-a-puppet workshop.
  • Sesame Street Live in Atlanta, all weekend 
    Don’t miss your favorite Sesame Street characters live, in this brand new production at the Infinite Energy Arena.

  • Shrek the Musical JR., all weekend
    Part romance, part twisted fairy tale, it's all fun in this musical production of Shrek Jr. Great for the whole family.

Tommy's Picks

  • My Favorite Murder Live, Friday, Nov. 9
    Attention Murderinos! The hit podcast starring Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark comes to the Fox Theatre. Whether you're a longtime subscriber or just interested, come see the podcast that sits at the crossroads of true crime and comedy.
