Theatrical Outfit’s mission is to produce world-class theatre that starts the conversations that matter. We envision a compassionate, joyful, and just community in the center of downtown Atlanta. Artistry is at the core of our productions; Community is the source of our strength; Inclusion is central to our purpose; and Integrity is the heart and soul of our work. Atlanta’s second oldest professional theater company, Theatrical Outfit makes its home in the LEED-certified Balzer Theater at Herren’s. Herren’s holds a proud place in history as the first Atlanta restaurant to voluntarily desegregate in 1962. In 2013, the mortgage on the facility was paid off, and the deed was transferred to the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to ensure that the building maintains its place as a downtown performing arts venue for years to come.
After more than a year away from live theatre, Theatrical Outfit is excited to announce a return to the stage. For the 2021-2022 Season, audiences will once again be welcomed back into the Balzer Theater in the heart of Downtown Atlanta to experience smart, authentic, vital in-person theatre. Starting in September, Theatrical Outfit will open its doors in a COVID-19 safe way that includes a brand new, state-of-the-art, air filtration system with bi-polar ionization and will embrace the latest safety guidelines for each production. With five gripping Mainstage productions and the continuations of Made In Atlanta, Graham Martin Unexpected Play Festival, and The Welcome Table, the 2021-2022 Season at Theatrical Outfit will bring powerful, relevant, and thrilling live theatre back to the heart of Downtown Atlanta.
