Nice theatre – Nice stage, friendly staff. We saw Agatha Christie's
And Then There Were None, fun evening, something different to do. The actors were brilliant and quite funny. The ticket prices were reasonable, some as cheap as $25. Needless to say I'll be back!
Under artistic director Gregory Boyd's far-reaching leadership, this Southwest powerhouse has reached the big time. – Features
Among the Alley's many honors is a 1996 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theater. Past world and American premieres have included Tennessee Williams' "lost" prison drama "Not About Nightingales," Eve Ensler's "Lemonade" and Edward Albee's "The Play About the Baby." Other privileges: appearances at the Venice Biennale and Lincoln Center; ongoing relationships with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights Albee and Horton Foote, pop Broadway composer Frank Wildhorn, noted actors Vanessa and Corin Redgrave, iconoclast Robert Wilson, and Broadway and Steppenwolf scenic designer Kevin Rigdon.
The theater strengthens its ties with the community through "talk backs" between theatergoers and troupe members after certain performances. Also, by contracting actors on an annual basis, the Alley fosters loyalty all around; actors have a vested interest in continuing to develop their skills, and theatergoers become involved with the growth of the actors.
this place rules – Alley Theatre rules! The shows are all great and I've never been disappointed.. We just recently saw Fully Committed and it was a great show!
Art House Alley – Where in Houston can you find entertaining theater featuring world-class performers and a brilliant artistic staff? Since I was 11, I found just that at the Alley Theatre. They continue to impress me every year with their daring and inventive productions. If you are looking to have a grand night at the theater call or visit the Alley box office and order yourself some tickets to any show. You won't be let down. I've never been.
Best Secret In Town – We have been going to the Alley FOR YEARS. What a terrific place to see live performances and, the service, it's out of this world!!!!
