For its second full year under artistic director Jasson Minadakis, ACTORS EXPRESS lived up to its rep as Atlantas most vital theatrical venue. Bookended by the darkly comic Killer Joe (the seasons most delightfully disturbing play) and the more challenging examination of Southern character, Hazard County, Actors Express produced the plays most likely to start arguments in a good way. Even the shows that didnt quite click, like The Love Song of J. Robert Oppenheimer, had more ambition and ideas than most other playhouses best successes.
