It’s new season announcement time in Atlanta’s theatre community!

Theatrical Outfit’s new Artistic Director Matt Torney has announced his first season at the downtown venue. Fitting this time of social distancing and Zoom call after Zoom call, Torney has released a series of videos announcing his show selections.

The company said in a statement, “Theatrical Outfit is deeply invested in how theatre can strengthen Atlanta’s communities by starting urgent, exciting, and profound conversations by celebrating the power of live art to bring people together and by recognizing that an active and vibrant culture helps make a better future.”

Check out the full lineup from Torney on the stage of the Balzer Theater at Herren’s!
