Atlanta >Alliance Theatre
“great place to take students!”
In Atlanta, "going to the theater" is often synonymous with attending a show at this nationally acclaimed space..
Since opening its doors in 1968, the Alliance Theatre (a division of the Woodruff Arts Center) has evolved into one of the South's most prestigious professional resident regional theaters. It has become a lynchpin of the Atlanta arts community. Each season the main Alliance Theatre plays host to an eclectic menu of classical and contemporary favorites. Downstairs, the Hertz Theatre presents edgier work (often with provocative or controversial subject matter) in a smaller 200-seat space, an environment closer to Atlanta's community theaters.
Each season seems to attract an increasingly diverse audience. Expect several productions of minority or ethnic interest, along with Broadway favorites, Alliance originals and "A Christmas Carol" every holiday season. A long-established children's theater performs a couple of shows each year. Several original productions have graduated to the Great White Way, including 1998's heralded world premiere of "Elaborate Lives: The Legend of Aida."
