Actor’s Express kicks off the new year with Joshua Harmon’s blistering comedy Bad Jews running January 24 through February 22, 2015.

Called the “best comedy of the season” by The New York Times, this savagely funny play, which was developed by Joshua Harmon during his National New Play Network playwriting residency at Actor’s Express, was the most acclaimed comedy of the past New York theatre season.

“Helping give life to Bad Jews is one of the proudest achievements of AE’s new play development efforts,” says Actor’s Express Artistic Director Freddie Ashley who will be directing its Atlanta premiere.

Performances are Wednesday through Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $26-$45 and may be purchased at or by calling 404.607.7469.
