At the Alley we believe that theatre should be an enriching, entertaining, and challenging experience. Our community brings diverse experiences into the theatre with them and we wish to acknowledge that sensitivity to subject matter varies from person to person.
To assist you as you explore our programming, we include basic content advisories using the system of initials below. For example, a production labeled LNV indicates that the production contains coarse language, nudity, and violence.
Guest Services will always have the most up-to-date information about each performance. If you would like to know more about content, age-appropriateness, or stage effects that might impact your comfort or the comfort of your party, we invite you to contact Guest Services at 713.220.5700.
