If you've ever performed in your parents living room in front of family and friends, then you will love Atlanta's newest performance nook, The Green Room Actors lounge. The new bookstore/bistro/performance venue got a star-studded grand opening last night and was hosted by actress and co-owner Terri J. Vaughn and media maven Rashan Ali.
The Green Room is the culmination of ideas thought up by Terri J. Vaughn and is also co-owned by her business manager and Attorney Shannon K. Nash, Film Producer Roger Bobb (BobbCat Films) and retired NBA player Adonal Foyle. The bookstore is a place to go and research your craft while being entertained in the performance space.
"My goal is to provide a supportive and nurturing community for Atlanta based talent where they can feel a sense of camaraderie that I so deeply fell in love with during my seventeen years living in Hollywood, as well as a haven for out of town actors to unwind while filming in Atlanta. Actors are interesting creatures and we have interesting needs and I plan to serve those needs and more at The Green Room Lounge.", states Terri.
Celebrity guests stopped by to offer support for the Green Room while enjoying a host of impromptu performances by a variety of artists including Anthony David and Angie Stone. Attendees included: Atlanta Mayor Kasim reed, Jasmine Guy, Rodney Perry, Demetria McKinney, Clifton Powell, Malinda Williams and more. To join the conversation the Twitter handle is @realgreenroom.
