Alliance Theatre presents 'Trading Places' now through June 26
The Alliance Theatre presents its newest theatrical production, Trading Places. It opens this weekend and runs through June 26 on the Coca-Cola stage.
Inspired by the beloved film, Trading Places is a hilarious world-premiere musical pitting nature against nurture in a modern-day prince and the pauper story. When the lives of a poor street hustler and a privileged stockbroker are swapped as part of an elaborate bet between wealthy brothers, each is challenged in a way they never imagined. With the help of a charming and unlikely cast of characters, the pawns team up to take their revenge in a comedic and fitting turn that leaves them forever changed for the better.
Set in the 80s decade of shoulder pads and big hair, and reimagined through today’s societal lens, audiences will walk out of the theater “looking good, feeling good.”
Trading Places is helmed by an exciting creative team including television and film writer Thomas Lennon (Night at the Museum, Reno 911), musical writing team Alan Zachary & Michael Weiner (First Date), and Tony Award-winning director, Kenny Leon (A Soldier’s Play, A Raisin in the Sun). The show is also choreographed by Fatima Robinson (Super Bowl 2022, The Wiz Live).
