Urban sprawl, hot summers, and a multicultural city

The largest city in Texas, Houston is also one of the most ethnically diverse places in the US, with the country’s largest Asian, Arab and Latin American populations. Its multicultural essence can be found everywhere, from museums, to the performing arts and also in the diverse shopping and dining opportunities. Gay nightlife is centered in Neartown, around Pacific St. and surrounding streets. The South Loop’s Rice Village is a highly concentrated area of restaurants, bars, and shopping.

Alley Theatre was founded in 1947 by Nina Eloise Whittington Vance, and it soon grew to one of the most prestigious theatres in the United States. It moved to its current location in November 1968, and in 1996, the theatre won the Regional Theatre Tony Award, as an incubator of new productions.

The Alley Theatre is one of the few American theatre companies that supports a company of actors, designers, artisans and craftspeople throughout the year.
