Alliance
0801 Booth x.jpg

After 21 years, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director Susan V. Booth will leave the Alliance to become the Artistic Director for Chicago’s Goodman Theatre

“Atlanta and The Alliance have been the most extraordinary artistic home,” said Booth. “Working with an intrepid and fearless board, a deeply invested philanthropic community, and on a campus with world class cultural partners has been a profound gift.”

“As the Alliance’s longest-serving Artistic Director, Susan has shaped the Alliance into the nationally-recognized standard of excellence in American theater that it is today,” said Hala Moddelmog, President and CEO of The Woodruff Arts Center. “We thank Susan for her visionary and courageous leadership over the past 21 years and wish her every success in her future tenure with The Goodman.”

Under Booth’s leadership, the Alliance received the 2007 Regional Theatre Tony Award for sustained excellence in programming, education, and community engagement. Over the past two decades, Booth directed over 40 productions and established numerous programs and initiatives that support new works and emerging artists. Booth has championed education initiatives, including family programming and in-school, theater-based curriculums designed to support teachers and enhance student learning, that established the Alliance as a national model for theater education. Booth also led the Alliance through its largest capital campaign to transform the theater’s main performance space, opening The Coca-Cola Stage at Alliance Theatre during its 50th anniversary season.

Booth will finish her tenure with the Alliance by co-directing the regional premiere of the acclaimed play, Everybody, which begins previews September 2. Her last day with the Alliance is September 16. The Alliance’s Board of Directors will conduct a national search for the Alliance’s next Artistic Director.

“I so look forward to watching The Alliance's next big adventure and know my colleagues – quite simply the finest staff of theatre practitioners I know – will take the theatre to greater and greater heights of service, inclusion, and excellence," said Booth. "From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your continued support of this theater throughout my tenure and beyond.”
