Theatre in the Square

Staff Pick

After 25 years of solid, occasionally controversial work, the Marietta playhouse THEATRE IN THE SQUARE has perfected the formula to meet its artistic and commercial needs. Each season, the company strikes a nearly perfect balance of fresh interpretations of theatrical chestnuts (like Bus Stop), new plays about Southern life (Turned Funny) and, primarily in its smaller Alley Stage, edgy, relevant productions (Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth and Dael Orlandersmith’s incendiary Yellowman). Theatre in the Square isn’t just a role model for other outside-the-Perimeter playhouses; it can teach Atlanta’s hipster theaters a thing or two as well.
