The Georgia Southern Theatre presents the first production of the Spring semester “BUG” written by Tracy Letts.
“Bug” is a dark comedy takes place in a seedy motel room outside Oklahoma City, where Agnes, a drug-addled cocktail waitress, is hiding from her ex-con ex-husband. She meets Peter, a handsome drifter with a secret past. Tracy Letts’s tale of love, paranoia, and government conspiracy is a thought-provoking psycho-thriller that mixes terror and laughter at a fever pitch.
Directed by Lisa L. Abbott, “Bug” explores the depth of human weakness and is a showcase of the madness and fear that plagues conspiracy theorists while focusing on issues of love, paranoia, drugs, conspiracy theories, psychological trauma, and Agnes’s slow descent into insanity under Peter’s influence.
The author, Tracy Letts is an American actor, playwright, and screenwriter. He is best known for his award-winning play (2007) and film (2013) titled “August: Osage County”. “Bug” was first produced in London in 1996 and was adapted for the screen by Tracy Letts in 2006. He has also featured in various plays, movies and Television shows including “Homeland” (2013), “The Big Short” (2015) and his Broadway debut in 2012 as George in “Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” For which he won a Tony award in 2013.
Georgia Southern Theatre will be showing “Bug” on Wednesday, February 27 through Wednesday, March 6, 2019. No performance on Monday night, March 4th.

The venue. Market2Go is moving! Starting Thursday, February 14, Market2Go order pickups will be at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau at 222 South Main Street. They’re not moving far — the SCVB is on South Main Street, diagonally across from Queensborough Bank.
Hours will remain the same with order pick up between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. every Thursday.
Sugar Magnolia Bakery has been the operations base for Market2Go since the very beginning. The owners past and present have been very generous and gracious through every kind of transition of the building. They are grateful to Steve Jones for helping them get started, Barry Turner for letting them use the building even when the business was closed, and especially to Caroline Joyner and the current management team for making room for them — and making them feel welcome — even as they worked around the market to do renovations and open their beautiful new restaurant.
At their new location at the SCVB, they will have a dedicated cooler and freezer to improve efficiency, food safety and customer service. They also expect that the generous parking area will make order pickup more convenient for the customers.
The cost structure. They are eliminating the annual membership fee and in its place — because they have to maintain support for the market — they’re instituting a surcharge of 7% on each order.
Their analysis, as well as comments from vendors and would-be customers, suggest that their annual membership fee of $25 remains a barrier to market participation for some customers, especially for customers at lower incomes. At the same time, they know they need to maintain their income to cover market expenses. They think that this new structure will allow them to do both — to bring in new customers to the market and also produce income to keep the market going.
Effective immediately, market membership fees will no longer be charged — anyone can make purchases on the market, simply by signing up. They will contact customers who have paid a membership fee recently, to offer some compensation alternatives.
Beginning March 1, your Market2Go orders will include a 7% market-support fee to maintain income for Market2Go.

This Friday, February 1st, Bird Dog Jubilee will be jamming live at Statesboro’s very own The Blue Room.
Bird Dog Jubilee is a rock-n-roll collection of instrumentalists that blur the lines between structured songs and improvisational jams. While their roots run deep in Atlanta, their act is building up steam throughout Southeastern venues and festivals. Their chutzpah is epitomized by their ability to seamlessly meld tunes while encouraging impromptu collaborations with fellow musicians live on stage.
Each member has an eclectic set of influences in which they draw inspiration from, but they can always agree on The Band, Phish, or My Morning Jacket while on the road. The synergy of each member’s experiences culminate live on stage providing a unique take each time you attend a performance.
Fresh off recording their debut 3-song EP at Prana Studios just outside the Atlanta City Limits, BDJ is ready to let it ring out and jam with you at their next show. Whether they are blending old ballads, or hashing out new grooves, this is act is always a sight to see at their crux.
They will release their best live tracks of 2018 periodically starting with Tabby’s Playhouse > Duct Tape James. This medley encapsulates BDJ’s new found sound with technical licks accompanied by sweet melodies. Check out the new tunes on Spotify, iTunes, and all streaming platforms.
You gotta get up to get down and they are looking forward to seeing you there. BDJ abides.
Tickets are one sale now and the doors open at 8PM, so be sure to kick off your weekend with a night of great music here in beautiful Statesboro.
To hear some music from the band, check out their Spotify debut!
