“If you love the Waffle House, you will love this play”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

If you are going to be in ATL, check out this play "The Waffle Palace". The Theatre itself is appartently in an old school building. It's very small but intimate which puts you right there in the action. Parking was confusing but there is more than enough just park in the back of the building thru the gates.

“Waffle Palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I've been to the Horizon Theatre several times and each time I go I think, "why don't I do this more often?"

Last night we saw Waffle Palace which was very entertaining and highlights many of the crazy characters that hang out at the Waffle House - from rockstars to drag queens to every day working Joes. The play also addresses some of the real estate issues that some businesses face - what happens when their store's facade is blocked by construction - and how it affects their employees. It was a great play with outstanding performances!

But back to Horizon - I believe the building used to be a school. There is plenty of onsite parking at no charge (love that!) and they offer refreshments at reasonable prices. A glass of wine for $4.00 - not the greatest tasting wine, but nevertheless, it's at the right price point. We also saw lots of folks eating cookies, which we heard are really good.

Seating is first come, first serve, so get there early and find a spot that suits you. The seats are close together and are not the most comfy, but they are very close to the stage. You really feel connected to the play due to the intimate seating. There is also reserved seating available, but that seemed a bit unnecessary. There's really not a bad seat in the house.

Go, have fun, let Horizon entertain you! They'll even let you take photos with the cast after the performance!

“Current Show "The Waffle Place"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is one of the best theaters in Atlanta. There are many of them, the theatre scene in Atlanta is thriving. This current show is on till March 17th and it is sold out a lot. If you have ever experienced a "Waffle House" you need to see it. It is locally written, expertly performed, a wonderful evening out.They are online www.horizontheatre.com It is worth seeking out if you like GOOD local theatre!
