Melville's classic tale of man's obsessive battle against nature comes to life in "a triumph of grand theatrical imagination, deep thought, superb acting, and eye-popping, ingeniously deployed physical daring" (Chicago Sun-Times). Bold trapeze and acrobatic work turn this seafaring American classic into a thrilling experiment in aerial storytelling. Set sail for an epic adventure with Captain Ahab and his crew in this harrowing quest for the great white whale. From Lookingglass Theatre Company, see the jaw-dropping production that delighted Chicago audiences, young and old.
On October 12, 1958, a bundle of dynamite blew through the wall of Atlanta's oldest synagogue. Following 1954's Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Rabbi Rothschild of The Temple had become a public advocate for the progress of Civil Rights. The explosion and national support for The Temple community bolstered Atlanta city leaders' resolve to investigate and prosecute the crime, paving the way for dramatic social change. Temple Atlanta, inspired by the award-winning book The Temple Bombing by Melissa Fay Greene, is a world premiere presented on the occasion of The Temple's 100th anniversary. This theatricalization celebrates a city that came together in the face of hatred to live the lessons of the Civil Rights era, lessons that still resonate 58 years after that fateful day. Temple Atlanta is developed in association with Tectonic Theater Project of New York and The Temple.
In rural Tennessee at the height of the Civil Rights Movement two young couples struggle to understand justice, love, and their own responsibilities. When Bowzie gets a scholarship to attend Fisk University, he has the opportunity to improve his family's life. His education goes beyond the classroom, as he becomes a Freedom Rider and joins the fight against racism in the Deep South, leaving his obligations as a husband and friend behind. A beautifully written look at the personal cost and private struggles behind public events, Too Heavy for Your Pocket speaks powerfully about the bonds of friendship and what defines true family. The 2017 winner of the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, the Alliance is thrilled to celebrate one of its own—playwright and former Kenny Leon Fellow Jiréh Breon Holder.

This feel-good romantic comedy by Atlanta's Janece Shaffer (The Geller Girls) with original music by Sugarland's Kristian Bush is a world-premiere production not to be missed.
