We've asked the leaders of major Atlanta arts organizations to come in and share their thoughts with us for a mini-series we're calling "Arts 2015." The local luminaries shared with us their reflections and forecasts on their particular fields and the unique challenges and benefits of being a leader of the arts in Atlanta.

One of those leaders is Leslie Gordon, director of the Rialto Center for the Arts at Georgia State University. In her ten-plus years at the helm, Gordon has transformed the landscape of the downtown theater.

Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s current production is a play by Lewis Black — yes, that Lewis Black: the very angry man who can be caught ranting on "The Daily Show" and in his own stand-up comedy specials. It may surprise some of his fans to discover that not only is Lewis Black a playwright, but that his play, "One Slight Hitch," is a romantic comedy.

Alliance Theater

The Alliance Theatre believes in “getting ‘em while they’re young”… in this case, quite literally.

Their program, Theater for the Very Young, is in its fourth season of bringing the performing arts to children.

WABE's Lois Reitzes recently sat down with Rosemary Newcott and Olivia Aston Bosworth from the Alliance, as well as actor Jose Miguel Vasquez, to talk about their current show, "The Lizard and El Sol."
