For the last two years Horizon Theatre Company’s energetic hit musicals AVENUE Q and THE TOXIC AVENGER were huge successes when we played to sell-out crowds under the trees and stars in Piedmont Park. We are back for a third time! This time with our hilarious musical comedy NOBODY LOVES YOU!
Atlanta INtown called it “hugely entertaining,” while ArtsATL said it was “both funny and pretty sexy!” Audiences couldn’t get enough of our wacky characters and catchy love songs, raving “it was the best show I’ve seen in Atlanta,” to noting they “laughed for two straight hours.” Don’t miss out on the summer’s biggest show!
The game of love is on! Tune into “Nobody Loves You,” the TV show-within-the-show that follows attractive singles pairing up to find love. When Jeff, a philosophy grad student, snags a spot on this reality dating show in trying to win back his ex, he finds himself breaking the rules to expose its “authenticity.” That is until he unexpectedly falls into an onset love connection with Jenny, an enticingly prickly producer. Along the way, we hit all the reality TV high points – tearful confessionals, the steamy Hot Tub Room, the Crush Ceremony, and explosive truths in the Minefield Tango. Take a behind-the-scenes ride through this hilarious musical comedy about the intimate and gut-wrenching quest for love while millions of viewers watch!
So come laugh and party with us in Piedmont Park this summer (in The Promenade area near the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and Sage Parking Garage).
Bring your own picnic or purchase from onsite food trucks and concessions/bar. Audiences can bring their own food, water, and soft drinks – but no alcohol or glass. Wine, beer, water and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Grounds open for picnicking at 6pm. Show starts at 7:30pm.

“Nobody Loves You… hugely entertaining!… This is a multi-talented cast full of award-winning performers…. Horizon’s intimate theater is just right for this show; I had a fun time and so will you!”
“It’s hard to imagine a more committed cast… A good time delivered by some of the city’s most talented comedic actors and singers — everybody can love that.”
“Nobody Loves You is one of the funniest most entertaining shows I’ve seen in years… Special shout out goes to Melkonian, who is outstanding in the three roles she plays.”
“The show is fast moving, both funny and sometimes pretty sexy. It features 19 numbers, done with great aplomb and with a live band backing them up… Brad Raymond is the show emcee, and he is spot-on for such a role… Austin also is a laugh riot when he comes on as Evan.”
“BEST SHOW EVER.”
“This was the BEST performance I have seen in Atlanta. I love The Bachelor and this story was spot on!”
“The singing was spectacular, and the jokes were on point!”
“I left the show with a smile on my face and I am definitely going to recommend this show to my friends!”
“I was very entertained. I want the soundtrack! Great music.”
“Run, don’t walk to see “Nobody Loves You”. It’s HILARIOUS. Great cast – so fun!”
“Laughter all the way through, excellent voices, MUSIC was FANTASTIC!”
“Very topical and very good writing!”
“Acting is amazing, the singing by MC of NOBODY LOVES YOU is more than amazing. I wish I could buy a CD with his songs. True interaction of cast. They were so into what they were doing. The set was amazing. The director was right on as the characters moved around the stage. Excellent experience Band was awesome…really was on the spot with actors. Impressed with some actors having more than one role.”
“I laughed from start to finish!”
“Actors were believable. It made me think well after the play was over about what is important, what is real to yourself and others. More importantly “sellout” which we are seeing in our current political area!”
“Brad Raymond was brilliant. The cast is really perfect all around: Jennifer was great and I loved seeing the contrast with her role in ‘Da Kink, Leslie was spot on (though I’m not sure what could top her in the Toxic Avenger), Jeanette and Patrick were completely authentic and believable in their roles, and Austin really nails physical comedy and timing. He is one to watch for us and we hope to see more of him.”
“Throughout the show there was an ecstatic electrical energy that emanated from the audience trying to catch their breath from frequent laughter. Moses and Alter seemed to be a great duo in creating a script, music and lyrics that are very rich with insights into both human behavior and the realities of today’s cultural addiction to voyeuristic T.V. The melodies and lyrics were fresh, funny and catchy. The quality of acting and singing was most impressive and the timing that made it a fast moving comedy was a testament to Heidi McKerley’s direction! During one of the funniest scenes the audience broke out into uncontrolled laughter and applauds while the MC character, sang one of the songs a la Barry White. I am an avid lover of theater as are all of my friends—who have frequented theaters around Atlanta for over 35 years. This play was the perfect antidote to the toxicity in our world right now which is why our “smile muscles” in our faces all hurt by the end of the show.”
Full review from Gary Pelphrey here
“Horizon’s Nobody Loves Me blew me away when I saw it last weekend. I don’t pretend to know much about music, but the first sound one hears in that play is Brad Raymond’s booming voice – I took off from there and didn’t land until everyone in the cast found someone to love, or maybe better, to be loved by.
If Brad doesn’t get an award for this performance, then we all should just encourage the free, unfettered use of everyone’s cell phone at every live performance from now on.
Along the way the cadence of the lyrics hit me hard. Written in perfectly pulsed rhythm, the word choices, in native millennial speak, made me think this is the kind of lyric Johnny Mercer would write, were he alive today.”
