In an effort to cater to the busy theatre patron with the full schedule, here are five reasons why you should strongly consider spending an afternoon or evening on the Pequod.

Bill Nunn - Blues for an Alabama Sky

Alliance Theatre Playwright in Residence Pearl Cleage remembers her friend and colleague, actor Bill Nunn (Do the Right Thing, Spider Man), who starred as Sam in her world premiere production, Blues for an Alabama Sky.

The Alliance Teen Ensemble has the opportunity to see and review each production during the season. See their responses to "Ugly Lies the Bone."
