Description

Now in its 44th and final season, The Underground Theatre is Atlanta’s oldest avocational theatre. Under the direction of Underground founder Dante Santacroce, the theatre has presented significant comedies and dramas which enlightened as they entertained. These outstanding plays have been performed twice a year, in fall and spring, for two weekends only, Thursdays through Saturdays. The theatre’s cozy underground venue, sporting just under 100 seats, has created an intimate setting for highly accessible performances of quality plays—usually revivals of Broadway’s “golden oldies.” Recent exceptions have been David Auburn’s Proof, winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Edward Albee’s modern classic A Delicate Balance, and acclaimed contemporary writer A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. Harvey is The Underground’s 85th production. The Underground is a non-Equity theatre whose actors perform pro bono.
