Performance Gallery is an idea and venue for a gallery of performing arts.
At one moment in time it was housed, briefly, near 10th Street and Peachtree Street, Atlanta, GA. This was in a 9,000 sq. ft. complex directly behind a version of Theatrical Outfit which faced famous Peachtree Street. (After the Civil War locals called the area around Tenth Street “Tight Squeeze,” a wooded ravine where the lawless hung out. The narrow road made traveling by wagon difficult. Bandits also hid in the wooded ravine and surrounding forests to rob travelers heading north out of the city.) Somehow fitting, The ‘Federal Reserve’ now occupies ’Tight Squeeze.”
“Say Goodnight, Gracie” by Ralph Pape was directed by Jerry Griffin and this was his photograph published in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper. (L-R) RAY McKINNON (before Hollywood,) multi-talented CLARK TAYLOR and one of the many faces of BARRY STOLTZE.
