One of the country’s foremost arts organization, the Alley is a Tony Award-winning company that produces classic and contemporary plays, as well as serving as a proving ground for new productions that make their way to Broadway.
The theater helped the popular Jekyll and Hyde musical get its start, launching a production in 1990 that helped the show develop on its way to a Broadway opening in 1997. In addition, the Alley has brought productions to 40 American cities and around the world.
Founded by Nina Vance in 1947, the Alley is the oldest professional theater company in Texas.
Located on Texas Avenue in Downtown, in a building that underwent a $46.5 million renovation in 2014 and 2015, the Alley produces an eight- to nine-show season, plus the iconic favorite, A Christmas Carol. During the summer, the company offers a short series of mysteries under the flag “Summer Chills.”
Plays are performed on either the 774-seat Hubbard Stage, or the more intimate 296-seat Neuhaus Stage.
