We just visited Actors Theatre again on Saturday for the Boiled Peanut Hour, hosted by chef Edward Lee and the Lee brothers of Charleston. There was a demonstration of nouveau Southern cuisine, delivered with a healthy dose of humor. Of course there was a buffet featuring said items afterward-- which was excellent. I am not sure which was better...the show... More

Been here many times and always have a great experience. The restaurant was nice too. Parking is a snap if you take advantage of the attached public parking garage.

I received tickets to Actors theater so I decided to go see GLORY OF THE WORLD march 20.I must admit I was getting fussy in the beginning due to the complete silence for 15 minutes watching Thomas Merton meditate.Luckily this part ended and the rest of the show was very upbeat and entertaining.Close minded people should avoid going as there...

Nothing quite feels like the holiday season like A Christmas Carol. In a darkened space, surrounded by theatre goers, literally hanging on every brilliant word and each dramatic gesture, the mood is of pure exhilaration. So yes, the time for rejoicing can begin, because Actors Theatre will be running Charles Dickens' beloved tale through December 23. I would highly recommend... More

went to see Love's labour's lost. I was only in town for one day i decided to head here to end the night. Other than one actress that was in it who pulled my attention with her acting skills, the rest of the cast could be discarded. There did not seem to be any heart put into the work. Thankfully...

If you like an old theatre maintained as it was decades ago, you will love Actors. Alumni of Actors have frequently gone on to Broadway and various positions of authority in the arts. Don't miss Christmas Carol in season. A good restaurant and bar are attached.

The plays were slow and boring. Went with a couple of family members for the season. We will just choose certain plays from now on.
