Great Plays

I love going to the theater and buy season tickets each year. You never know what you will see, but it will always be innovative and interesting!

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.

If you decide to attend a theatrical preformance in part based upon the reputation of the company in charge you can rest assured that presentations by Actors Theater will meet or exceed any reasonable expectations. The theaters themselves are intimate and comfortable. The preformers are talented and well schooled. The programs offer a wide variety of the art form and... More

I recently attended an performance of a new play as part of The Humana Festival. Excellent casting and acting, all elements came together to make the production a memorable experience. Came to the performance last minute without tickets after looking on line and seeing seats were available, bought them at the window and didn't have to pay any handling charges.... More

Not a place for adults with good taste. Productions are silly & juvenile. You would think a city of this size would have legitimate theater. Regrettable.
