Bruce Sussman is the co-author of well over 200 published and recorded songs written for dozens of artists, films, television programs and stage musicals. The majority of these projects were written with his collaborator of 40 years, Barry Manilow. For the stage, he co-authored the scores for Ted Tally's Coming Attractions (Outer Critics Circle Award, Pulitzer Prize nominee) and Wendy Wasserstein’s Miami, both produced Off-Broadway by Andre Bishop at Playwrights Horizons in New York. His songs have been featured in numerous stage revues including The Madwoman of Central Park West, Tuxedos for Hire, and the long-running Off-Broadway and London productions of Whoop-DeeDoo! (Drama Desk Award, Obie Award). With Mr. Manilow, he wrote the song scores for the animated feature films The Pebble and the Penguin, Thumbelina and Disney's Oliver And Co. He is particularly proud to have written a song with Mr. Manilow for the televised bicentennial celebration of the United States Constitution. The song, “Let Freedom Ring," was later performed at the televised Inaugural Gala for President Clinton. His songs have been featured in over two dozen feature films and have been recorded by an array of pop, jazz, country, and international artists, earning Grammy Awards and multiple Gold and Platinum records from around the world.
Two-time Tony Award nominee, Christopher Sieber, makes his Alliance Theatre debut in the role of Trent Oliver in The Prom.
Tony Award-winning actor Beth Leavel ("The Drowsy Chaperone") will star in the Alliance's world premiere musical, "The Prom," playing Broadway diva Dee Dee Allen.
The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
