Having directed the acclaimed one-man show EMERGENCE-SEE! for off-Broadway, Atlanta's Kenny Leon, True Colors Theatre Company's artistic director, brings the head-spinning play to Atlanta for a limited run Thurs.-Sun., JAN. 18-21. Writer/performer Daniel Beaty (pictured) switches between 40 different characters in this tale of a supernatural slave ship that emerges before the Statue of Liberty and sends New York City into a whirlpool of soul-searching, political argument and media frenzy. The New York Times has described the show as "dazzling," "memorable" and "hilarious." $15. Thurs. and Sat., 8 p.m.; Fri., 11 a.m. and 8 p.m.; Sun., 2:30 p.m. Rialto Center for the Performing Arts, 80 Forsyth St. 404-651-4727. www.truecolorstheatrecompany.com.
