Missing live theatre as much as we are? As usual, the Atlanta theatre community is here for us. Alliance Theatre favorites Courtenay Collins and Terry Burrell have teamed up to bring a cocktail cabaret to virtual audiences every, every Thursday by way of “We’re Still Here.”

Just the facts

We’re Still Here: A Virtual Cabaret will be streamed live on the Alliance’s Facebook page and YouTube channel each Thursday at 7:00 p.m., July 9 – August 13.

In the words of the Alliance Theatre

Following the style of the beloved one-woman holiday show Courtenay’s Cabaret: Home for the Holidays, Broadway stars Courtenay Collins (The Prom) and Terry Burrell (Ethel) will host free virtual get-togethers each week with songs, stories, and maybe a cocktail or two.
