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.

I just completed a weekend of New Plays at Actors' Theatre. Six plays in three days! It is the Humana Festival of New American Plays. The productions are well done. Nice facilities. The ticket prices are very reasonable. The patrons who attend these new plays purposely travel to see them. This makes for an extremely involved and passionate environment.

The plays have all become MTV shows with loud music and people yelling rather than acting. Everything is forced instead of true acting. I am giving up my subscription after 38 years.
