THE DEUCE lights up the LYRIC THEATRE when hot action hits Hotlanta… and nobody leans on SHARKY’S MACHINE!

Plus: Prizes and surprises, Bronx Brewery Pale Ale at the after-party, and music by DJ BONES! Hosted and presented by THE DEUCE JOCKEYS: Jeff, Andy, and Joe!

Recently reprimanded and newly vice-squaded cop Sharky uncovers a bevy of baddies while spying on prostitute/love interest known as “Dominoe” – then calls on some old buddies for back-up and ball-busting…

Director and star Burt Reynolds’ self-described “Dirty Harry Goes To Atlanta,” cuts more to the emotional quick of big-city-cop cynicism than most of its ilk – taking his tough-guy Sharky into some tender territory, rarely mined in so macho a genre… Without skimping on the fun and furious action and antics!!

Veteran character actors Bernie Casey, Brian Kieth, Richard Libertini and Charles Durning show up as Sharky’s “Machine”  – while creepy Henry Silva is one sinister sicko!! With some smooth jazz courtesy of Doc Severinson!
