The Alliance Theatre has hosted countless shows and other cultural events in its half-century on Peachtree Street in Midtown, but nothing compares to the drama of destruction currently playing out in the space.
Instagram photos posted by an account likely belonging to Victor W. Smith, the director of production for the Alliance, highlight the demolition within the Woodruff Arts Center.
The work is clearing the way for a transformational renovation to give new life to the 1960s-era venue.
Plans for the eye-popping renovation bubbled up nearly two years ago. Since, more details have been revealed about the sinuous new wood interior that was designed by New Orleans-based firm Trahan Architects.
A $38-million grant, secured back in 2014, jump-started the process of what will ultimately be a $110-million initiative to include the theater renovation, new learning spaces, pre-performance spaces, and more inviting public spaces for visitors, as well as endowments and funding for an array of programs.
Here are some of the amazing photos of the work:
