• "Noir with a modern edge."

    Scandal's Jeff Perry directs this scorching police drama that will have you on the edge of your seat—so please hold on. See it on the Hertz Stage now–October 11.
  • (No, it's not a fighting style. Except when it is...)

    Albert and Jennifer Chen need to figure out why they're only sort of, kind of successful—you know, because their tiger parents raised them to be wildly successful. But maybe it's all their parents' fault after all and they've been set up for a life of middle management and underachieving by unrealistic expectations! Obviously there's only one way to find out—join Albro and Jennifer on their seriously hilarious Asian Freedom Tour in the world premiere of Tiger Style!
  • Pearl Cleage, 1910, and Atlanta's original music festival

    Before Music Midtown, before Shaky Knees, and before Afropunk, Atlanta was changed forever by an audacious festival. Tell Me My Dream is a Pearl Cleage world premiere written for Atlanta middle schoolers, and it promises to be an eye-opening dive into a true moment in Atlanta's history. On stage for a limited run: October 30–November 8.

"Packs a wallop."

"...I remain in awe of Sal Viscuso and Thomas Vincent Kelly, for their takes on troubled Chicago police officers. Viscuso brings a seething vitality to the role of Denny." —Wendell Brock for the AJC

See Sal Viscuso and Alliance veteran Thomas Vincent Kelly's (Good People) charged performances in A Steady Rain, now through October 11.

A worldly world premiere from Mike Lew

From the Kendeda Competition-winning playwright of Bike America comes a trip around the world and through the lives of two successfully underachieving twenty-somethings. Both honest and wildly surreal, Tiger Style! will have everyone questioning how becoming an adult happens—and who's to blame thank for all of our failures successes.

You've never seen a comedy like this on the Alliance Stage. September 30–October 18.

A Steady Rain; a gripping play

Our Hertz Stage season opens with a harrowing and intimate police ride along with two partners—two friends—coping in their own way with a deteriorating city and splintering relationships. Jeff Perry (from ABC's Scandal and co-founder of Steppenwolf Theatre Company) directs Keith Huff's (writer/producer for Mad MenHouse of CardsAmerican Crime, and Helix) blistering script.

Don't miss the deluge on our Hertz Stage, September 18–October 11.

Roar. It's Tiger Style! in rehearsal.*

See Jon Norman Schneider and Ruibo Qian run through a scene during Tiger Style! rehearsals. Then see them on stage for the world premiere of a comedy unlike anything you've seen on the Alliance Stage, September 30–October 18.

*Video contains strong language. They're really mad at their parents, after all.
