"...a magical tapestry of music, story and life." — Joseph Harrison, Broadway World

New Orleans. 1928. As the Roaring Twenties dance their way down Bourbon Street, an orphan in search of home finds family in the most unexpected places. An exciting new musical twist on the Dickens classic. 

Tony Nominee William F. Brown, author of The Wiz, joins forces with Grammy Award winning composer/lyricist Tena Clark – who has written for recording artists Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin and Natalie Cole, and composer Gary Prim on this heart wrenching musical of identity, belonging and family. Twist marks the Alliance Theatre return of legendary director and choreographer Debbie Allen (Fame), fresh from her acclaimed Broadway and Olivier Award winning West End productions of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof

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.
