Patricia Terwilliger


Patricia Terwilliger has long had a love affair with the American West. In Spurs & Jalapenos, she focuses her lens on the men and women who have embraced cowboy traditions and amended them to suit their needs in the modern world. Given exclusive access to several prestigious working ranches, Pat has created a volume of story-telling photographs that reveal a culture undergoing fundamental change yet continuing to pay homage to the past. Individually, each picture captures a tale of today. Collectively, they provide a definitive record of the cowboy as this great icon moves through the 21st century.

“Pat Terwilliger’s latest book on the modern cowboy is visually striking to say the least. It is a beautiful book full of incredible photography of the modern cowboy and his world. It is a most have book for anyone who loves the West!”

What’s your favorite Cinderella story? I’m not talking about the storybook version — I’m talking the “They came from nowhere and look where they ended up” version. The 1980 U.S. Hockey Team version. The Meghan Markle version. What’s yours? Here’s one of my favorites. It’s about a theater that — once upon a time — locked arms and hearts around an idea of what it wanted to be when it turned 50. It’s a story of investing in local artists with a launching-pad laboratory. A story of doubling down on a commitment to make world-class theater for young people, and to do so with partnerships that would advance literacy and empathy. A story of being an exporter of new work, not an importer. And a story of building a new theater that would give the audiences and artists that so generously support it a beautiful place to experience and craft the work they make possible. Here’s the happily ever after part. You all liked that story, too. And because of that, here we are. Launching the Cinderella story that is Ever After in the Cinderella story that is the Alliance Theatre at 50. Part of what made me fall in love with Ever After was its brilliant decision to make Leonardo da Vinci the fairygodmother figure who catalyzes transformation. A real, palpable, giant-hearted genius who constantly asked, “Why not?” YOU are our magic. You catalyzed the Alliance’s transformation and said “why not” with equally great heart – traveling around the city with us while we built a theater, supporting enormous aspirations with equally enormous generosity and being here today. I love this story.

No Pumpkins Here Ever After's creators and director put their faith in a Cinderella-like heroine who can take care of herself.

The 30-plus-member Alliance Theatre cast (on its first day of rehearsals) includes such familiar Broadway faces as Sierra Boggess (The Little Mermaid) as Danielle, Rachel York (Victor, Victoria) as the stepmother Rodmilla, David Garrison (Wicked, A Day in Hollywood) as da Vinci, Terry Burrell (Dreamgirls) as the queen and Jeff McCarthy (Urinetown, Side Show).

our white mice will never be four white horses, at least not in Ever After, the musical that christens the Alliance Theatre’s new Coca-Cola Stage. You’d best not expect a pumpkin turned carriage, either. And there’s no fairy godmother chirping “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.” In this telling, the heroine figures out how to save herself and others, although Leonardo da Vinci does show up to lend a hand. Ever After, from the New York songwriting team of Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich, helps celebrate the Alliance’s 50th anniversary season and unveil its $32 million mainstage renovation. It’s adapted from the 1998 movie of the same name with Drew Barrymore as Danielle de Barbarac (the Cinderella character) and Anjelica Huston as her longsuffering and rather realistic stepmother. “This is not some idealized version of ingenue womanhood,” says Alliance artistic director Susan V. Booth, ENCORE ATLANTA | ATLANTA’S PERFORMING ARTS PUBLICATION | ENCOREATLANTA.COM

who directs. “This is a problem-solving heroine with wit, heart, intelligence and a capacity to see beyond the limits of ‘it’s always been this way.’ ” Danielle “isn’t waiting around for someone to rescue her,” Goldrich says. The Alliance cast features a number of familiar Broadway faces, including Sierra Boggess (The Little Mermaid) as Danielle, Rachel York (Victor, Victoria) as Rodmilla the stepmother, David Garrison (Wicked) as da Vinci and Terry Burrell (Dreamgirls) as Queen Marie of France. Atlanta actor Chris Kayser plays France’s King Francis. Booth says she’s drawn to stories of transformation and was particularly smitten by da Vinci’s presence. The artistinventor who died in 1519 in France fits nicely into a 1509-set story. Booth also appreciates the musical’s “fierce intelligence to both the characters and the context.” We return to fairy tales, she says, “because they’re archetypal tropes that help us understand the good, bad and the ugly of being alive. It’s why they exist. And particularly in times of circumstantial chaos, we need the solidity of those

stories. The more troubling our real lives become, the more we hunger for ‘once upon a time.’ ” Ever After began its trip to the Alliance about 15 years ago, when Heisler and Goldrich were asked to write the book and score. The show had its world premiere at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse in 2015, and the two have been tweaking it intermittently ever since. Ever After removes a lot of the “becauses” from the old story, including the famous TV and stage versions told by the great Rodgers and Hammerstein. It’s more about “why” than “because,” Heisler says. “I’m a huge fan of ‘Ten Minutes Ago’ and the magic of what can happen across a crowded room. But I’m also a big fan of two very human people stumbling toward love.” “The neat thing about this story is that Danielle challenges the prince,” Goldrich says. “The fact that she’s not very interested makes him interested. That’s so much more relatable than the ‘across a crowded room’ thing.” Heisler and Goldrich are probably best known for creating children’s musicals ( Junie B. Jones, Dear Edwina), but their

contemporary songs (“Taylor the Latte Boy”) are popular with performers like Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming. The two met 25 years ago on a wickedly hot day at the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop, the foremost training ground for aspiring Broadway songwriters. “It was like finding a kindred spirit across the room,” Heisler says. “We sat next to each other, and from the beginning it’s been this inexplicable connection. It’s always felt like we’re in mid-conversation.” They stick to one hard and fast rule when working: Goldrich gets the final say in any debate over music or rhythm; Heisler makes the call on dialogue and lyrics. It matters deeply that Ever After springs from two strong women, Booth says, calling the team’s songs “gorgeous and deceptively complex” and adding “they hit your ear and stay there — but they also hit both head and heart and stay there.” Building a show is like building a family, Heisler and Goldrich say. It’s a long and bumpy road — especially for a musical hoping to reach Broadway. “Sometimes you write shows and sometimes shows write you,” Heisler says. “You never know for sure what song will spin off or what ideas will take shape. You can’t expect to rush it.” “The real joy, for us, is in writing the songs,” Goldrich says. “And some shows just take longer to bake.”

flying down carpeted stairwells or colossal towers that overlook acres of lush greenery may take over your senses and sweep you off to a place far, far away. But what if I told you, that “once upon a time” isn’t so far away? That, in fact, “once upon a time” is as close to as our living-room remote controls. Once upon a time, there were two

everyday girls, one born in Los Angeles, the other in Berkshire, England. Both loved the arts and humanities. Although they lived 5,405 miles apart, they had several things in common. Neither came from royal wealth or money, but they became passionately interested in — and pursued — a life in the arts. Meghan Markle graduated from Northwestern University’s School of Communication with a bachelor’s degree in theater and international studies. While completing her double major, she worked at the American Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Kate Middleton graduated from Scotland's University of St. Andrews with an M.A. in art history. During a gap year, she traveled to Chile to take part in a Raleigh International charity program. Well-traveled and well-versed in their respective areas of art, Markle

and Middleton’s worlds would one day collide. Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, and Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, are on our vision boards, social media blogs and in headlines. They are the educated, thoughtful, fashion-forward princesses we imagined when wrapping our 5-year old selves in gown-like sheets, waving to our stuffed animals from makeshift carriages. Our “once upon a time” isn’t really so far away after all. Our once upon a time is today. We are the royals of our time. We are the fairy-tale endings of our own wildest dreams. We must first learn to look inside ourselves for the royal fanfare that we sometimes seek. And as for the handsome prince? Well, fairy tales really do come true, don’t you think? Once upon a time was yesterday, is today and will be ever after. STOCKUNLIMITED

profiles Your story. Your stage. To celebrate the Alliance Theatre’s 50th anniversary season, we’ve asked artists, friends and family to share why the Alliance is important to them. Annette Tanner, founder and president of Broadway Dreams, a nonprofit performing arts organization, talks about the relationship between the Alliance and Broadway Dreams and the future of American musical theater. “The dream of Broadway, with roots firmly planted in Atlanta. That is the essence upon which we have built our training program for the past 13 years. We are driven not by the artifice of bright lights but by the integrity of craftsmanship that the Great White Way represents. We provide our students in communities here, across North America and around the world with the space to develop their perspectives and talents and ultimately awaken their highest potential. “We are the pre-Broadway tryout, the incubator for the creative — not unlike the Alliance Theatre is for Ever After and has been over the course of its storied history for shows including The Color Purple, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, and this Broadway season’s The Prom. “Together, we are empowering the voices that will speak to a new generation of theater-makers and theatergoers. Now that is something to celebrate for ever after.”

— Annette Tanner Founder & President Broadway Dreams
