January 11 to February 4, 2012 | On the Alliance Stage
Part of the Alliance Series

"...grandly designed, deliciously acted...[Jasmine] Guy is charismatic, fun to watch..." —Wendell Brock for the AJC

"...expertly directed by Kent Gash...[the cast] is kinetic." —Manning Harris for the Atlanta INtown Paper

One of the most lauded plays of the decade having won the 2009 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Direction, Best Actress In A Play (Marcia Gay Harden) and the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. From the playwright that brought Atlanta the unforgettable play Art comes a no-holds-barred new play with a worldwide pedigree – and a universal question – What makes you go over the edge?

But what is it? It's a no holds barred, darkly funny look at the relationships between spouses and friends, and what happens when the littlest things end up pushing us completely over the edge. "Fortunately, there is still such a thing as the art of coexistence, isn't there?" We'll see...

As the New York Times said about the original Broadway production, "Never underestimate the pleasure of watching really good actors behaving terribly."

Audience Feedback


To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
