Ever After, A Musical for the Ages Based upon the hit motion picture of the same title, “Ever After” takes playgoers on a journey with Danielle de Barbarac as she risks everything to save a friend from an unjust fate. With the assistance of Leonardo da Vinci, Danielle must decide not only who she is, but also what she’ll fight for, and exactly how far she’ll go for love. In this modern take on the Cinderella legend, the play celebrates the true magic at the heart of the beloved story – the strength of the human spirit. Alliance productions have been “on the road” in Atlanta while the Alliance main stage underwent improvements. “Ever After” is the first production on the theater’s brand new Coca-Cola Stage, a stateof-the-art proscenium theater offering major enhancements for patrons including an intimate, JAN. 15comfortable and sound-sensitive environment. www.alliancetheatre.org
