The 2014/15 Season at the Alliance Theatre

Larger than life.

Love that phrase. Used often to describe particularly vivid family members that defy traditional adjectives, it seems said most often with admiration and just a touch of wonder. Larger than life.

Every year at the Alliance, as we assemble the next season, we start to see trends emerging.  I’d like to tell you that these are intentional — that we studiously fix our sights on a big picture conversation we’d like to have with you and then find the perfect eleven plays with which to start that party. What actually happens, though, is that one amazing piece of work emerges — and then another and another — that seem to lean into what we’re all talking about and hearing you talk about. And that’s when the big picture starts to form. 

The 2014/15 season is full of people, stories and human moments that are simply larger than what we daily experience as life. That inexplicable passion you feel when spring training begins? Got it. Bull Durham comes to the stage in muscular, musical glory. That epiphany that a moment in everyone’s history is metaphor for a moment in your own memory? We open that up, as National Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey’s Pulitzer Prize winning poetry cycle Native Guard lives on the Hertz Stage. That inexplicable collision of laughter and tears when mortality is on the table? Nobody’s ever nailed it quite like Robert Harling does in Steel Magnolias, so we’ve got that too, directed by theatre rock star Judy Ivey. Because life lived large takes you all over the emotional map, we’ve got a season that does the same: with a 20th anniversary production and world premiere from beloved Atlantans Pearl Cleage and Phillip DePoy, respectively; a holiday visit from the comedians of Dad’s Garage bringing us It's a Wonderful Laugh; and the world premiere of a glorious new musical with the ultimate story of life being bigger than we know — Tuck Everlasting.

It’s a season that travels far and wide — both in settings and stories — but also in its reach into our hopes, our fears, and our ever expanding notions of life’s limits. We’ve always believed that the discoveries of theatre lead to discoveries of self. In 2014/15, we’re hoping you discover something more. Something bigger. Something larger than life.
