Banned for Being Bold

Iconic, revolutionary, groundbreaking, and BANNED; Alley Rep. takes the stage with stories of being banned in the past and plays at risk of being banned today.

Banned for being in love, banned for contagious curiosity, banned for courage, banned for being the wrong race; this is a season about lovers and dreamers, activists and allies, and the heroes and hippies who spark change, chase freedom, and never let us forget something bigger is going on out there.

    When Hattie stops at the Ambassador Hotel to debate if she should attend the biggest night in show business, knowing she will not be allowed to sit with her cast but rather in a room at the back of the theater, the bartender, Arthur, and the maid, Dottie, do everything in their power to convince her to go and claim her historic win. A story of dreamers striving to overcome considerable obstacles and fighting for recognition amidst the racism and inequity of the ever-changing landscape of Hollywood.

    With a reputation that hasn’t faded, and an iconic score that changed pop culture forever, Hair is as relevant today as when it radicalized a generation in 1968.

To an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life” and “Let The Sunshine In.”

    Hair follows Claude, his best friend Berger, and their friends as they navigate their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution, all while rebelling against the war, their parents, and society at large. Hair explores themes of identity, free love, community, global responsibility, and peace and reminds us that history is never far away

  • Hot Asian Doctor Husband

    By Leah Nanako Winkler, Directed by Daniella Wheelock

    In the dead of winter, at the Cherry Blossom Garden, we meet Emi a multiracial Japanese woman lost and confused in grief and cultural expectations. Just a few months ago, Emi knew exactly what she wanted and got it: A Hot Asian Doctor Husband.

    On paper, he was the perfect candidate for Emi, but she pays the cost when he turns out not exactly as she imagined. Suddenly her ancestors, her legacy, and culture are all at stake. This hilariously contemporary and honest play explores the multi-racial experience. Lost in between her personal responsibility to carry on the culture passed down from her Japanese mother and her inability to control the cultural identity of the one she loves; this wry, award-winning play by Leah Nanako Winkler is a coming-of-age story beautifully woven with humor, emotion, and memories.

  • Cabaret

    Based on the play by John Van Druten, Stories by Christopher Isherwood, Music by John Kander, Lyrics by Fred Ebb , Book by Joe Masteroff, Directed by Buffie Main & Jodi Eichelberger, Musical director Dr. John Hamilton

    In a world where inexplicable ways can get you down, the Cabaret is one place where everyone can be free. This December, you’re invited to The Kit Kat Club, where it transforms VAC as it’s never been seen before.

    In a decadent Berlin nightclub, as the 1920’s draw to a close, a garish Master of Ceremonies welcomes the audience to forget all their troubles at the Cabaret. With the Emcee’s bawdy songs as wry commentary, Cabaret explores the dark, heady, and tumultuous life of Berlin’s natives and expatriates as Germany slowly yields to a second World War. While the world unravels outside, in the Cabaret, life is beautiful.

    Intimate and electrify, Cabaret is a fierce, meaty musical that pushes the boundaries of the form and literally holds “the mirror up to nature”, with musical numbers that include the classics “Willkommen,” “Cabaret,” “Don’t Tell Mama”, “Maybe This Time”, and “Two Ladies.” Cabaret is a 12-time Tony Award-winning musical, taking home eight in its original run in 1967 and four more in the 1998 revival.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert

2021-22 Season


Intermission is over! As we return to the stage, Alley Rep’s 13th season reflects the bold-risk-taking theater we have always been and the theater we want to become. We have taken advantage of our time off the stage to thoroughly examine the theatre we make. This season we are asking for growth from our audiences, our play choices, and ourselves.

We ask our audience to evolve with us as we tell stories of experiences they are less familiar with. In the shadow of the ghost light, we all found ourselves hiding and hardening away into a cocoon. The difficult part is growing out of that calcified state and into something wholly different. The metamorphosis is nothing to fear. We plan to play more fiercely and connect more deeply with our community. No more hiding or hardening. Welcome to Alley Repertory Theatre’s 2021-22 season “Metamorphosis.”

This season we are asking for growth from our audiences, our play choices, and ourselves.

We plan to play more fiercely and connect more deeply with our community.

Alley Rep is committed to working intentionally and rigorously to break down barriers to attending, learning, and creating theater—including those based on race, gender, sexuality, ability, and economics.

Over 13 seasons, Alley Rep has grown into a theater of, and for, our community.

Kill the Darlings

Call it celebrity culture or just old-fashioned idolatry, but when we lavish more attention on characters and avatars than flesh-and-blood human beings, something essential is lost.

A twisted political satire. Princesses with incredible pipes sing away the stereotypes. And inspiration taken from the idiosyncrasies of the real life Barbra Streisand. Three comedic plays confronting the idols of politics, mythology, and pop in hopes of rediscovering our shared humanity.

  • The Totalitarians

    By Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, Directed by Justin Ness

    Charismatic former roller derby champion, Penny, has been gaffing her way through a half-baked campaign for state office when a nonsensically awe-inspiring speech catapults her into the spotlight. For Penny’s speechwriter and campaign mastermind, Francine, a victory would resurrect her stalled career. For Francine’s physician husband, Jeffrey, it would thwart his own campaign to have sex and start a family already. As whispers of murder, conspiracy, and revolution begin to swirl, this sometimes-farcical, sometimes-satirical dark comedy threatens to spin out of control. With savage hilarity and scathing timeliness, THE TOTALITARIANS is an arrow to America’s corrupt political heart that grazes the funny bone along the way.

  • Disenchanted!

    Music & Lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino, Directed by Buffie Main & Weston Wells Olson, Music Director Thomas Newby

    When women are still girls, we tell them about Beauty and her beast, Snow White and her poisoned apple, and the unlucky Princess who had to kiss an amphibian. Through these animated royal role models, The Princess Complex is born: propping up lovesick soprano songbirds with pencil-thin waists at the expense of representing the diversity and vibrancy of real women. Fortunately, Alley Repertory Theater prescribes the cure. This Holiday Season, the princesses themselves will gather at Visual Arts Collective to dismantle The Princess Complex once and for all. In DISENCHANTED!, ten charmingly flawed heroines from the tales of Grimm, Perrault, and history reclaim their identities from their ditzy Disney counterparts through comedy and song. Brassy, bawdy, and painfully funny, this hit off-Broadway musical invites us to poke fun at the foibles of fairy tales and celebrate ourselves for who we really are. After all, it is Christmas.

    By Jonathan Tolins, Directed by Buffie Main
