Alliance Stage Series Presented by The Coca-Cola Company
A powerful American drama exploring the beauty and danger of being a free spirit in a closed system.
Star students and squabbling siblings Albert and Jennifer Chen used to represent the pinnacle of adolescent achievement. But when it comes to adulthood, they’re epic failures, and set out on a journey to discover their true heritage. Traveling from California to China, Tiger Style! embraces the inner slacker and the outer tiger parent in all of us.
Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Disgraced tells the story of Amir Kapoor, a successful lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his Muslim roots. Cultures collide and a friendly dinner conversation quickly explodes into something far deeper and more dangerous. One of the most provocative conversation starters on religion and identity in American theater today.
From the director of Motown the Musical comes the heart-warming and hilarious story of BeBe and CeCe Winans, youngest siblings of the Winans family dynasty. After becoming stars on Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Praise the Lord Network, BeBe must learn to balance his desire for success with his true calling. A new American musical starring a new generation of Winans singers.

Based on Mo Willems’ beloved CAT the CAT series, this play explores the often terrifying experience of making a new friend. Using the rhyming and simple language of the books, this theatrical experience will invite our young audience to identify Cat the Cat’s parade of animal friends, mimic their animal sounds, and even learn a new language! When Cat the Cat meets a newcomer on the scene, the audience shares in the nerves and the joy of the experience, and ultimately makes a room full of new friends themselves. Come play the play with Cat the Cat!
Near a majestic mountain in a vast jungle with many mango trees, it has not rained for weeks and weeks. The village well and pond are dry. Monkey and his friends look everywhere for water, but they have no luck. And then Monkey remembers a story his mama used to tell him, a story about how peacocks can make it rain by dancing. Join Monkey on his journey and together, we can discover if this magical story is true. Filled with traditional Indian music and dancing, this charming retelling of a classic Indian folktale promises to engage the senses and inspire the imagination.
An interactive adventure based on a famous Mexican folktale about a time when El Sol, (the Sun), disappeared from the sky.
