This is the first major building reinvention for the theatre since its construction in 1968 as part of the celebrated Woodruff Arts Center campus, also home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and High Museum of Art. The Woodruff Arts Center is one of the largest arts centers in the world, hosting more than 1.2 million patrons annually. It is distinguished by remarkable architecture designed by two Pritzker Prize winning architects, Richard Meier and Renzo Piano.

The design for the new 650-seat Alliance Theatre will transform the patron experience, fostering connectivity within the audience chamber; between performer and patron, and amongst the patrons themselves. The new design wraps the room in audience, minimizing the separation between orchestra and balcony levels, thereby rejecting the unjust social divisions they once represented.

The room is sculpted in white oak, inspired by the fluid beauty of the hand-turned Moulthroup bowls. Terraces and staircases cascade from balcony to orchestra level, heightening the sensation of envelopment.

In addition the entire audience chamber, enhanced by state-of-the-art theatrical systems, is tightened and slipped closer to the stage, amplifying the sense of intimacy. This pursuit of innovation, authenticity and relevance will be found throughout the complete Alliance complex from lobby through costume shop.
