Went to see "The Great American Trailer Park Musical". The show was awesome - very well produced and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. My bar drink, while pricey, was ...generous, to say the least. It lasted the entire show! :) We will definitely be back - we had a wonderful time and felt very... More

This is what live theater should be. Really good professional productions in an intimate setting- Have seen both their plays this summer- both excellent, especially River City which ranks among the best plays I ever saw anywhere, including Broadway and London.

This small and very intimate is the perfect place to see a play, up close and personal. We say River City by Diana Grisanti. While the play was good, it seemed to suffer from too much set on too small a stage. That's the Director's fault, not Actor's Theatre, but it did strain the story. I liked the venue, wished... More

I've been a flex pass holder for 6 years now and it is one of the best deals in Charlotte. This small theatre puts on some great productions - in a great, small & intimate theatre. The flex pass allows you to pick the date you want to attend as each production occurs - I've seen some amazing productions and... More

I'm always impressed with the talent, but truthfully, I usually like about one, maybe two shows a year, although I go to most of them. The shows are often weird, and I leave the playhouse scratching my head. This place has enormous potential. I love the cozy atmosphere, and again, I'm always impressed with the acting, just not the content.... More

ATC is a wonderful small theater. The productions are always fantastic because the actors are top-notch. I have never seen a performance there that wasn't high quality. The themes are thought-provoking and you're sure to discuss what you've experienced after the play is over. They have a 'pay what you wish' night and there is usually a reception on opening... More

This is a small intimate theater with minimal sets, but the play we saw was great. The cast did a fantastic job and being so close to the action made you feel like being there. This was our first visit, but not our last. The performance was sold out, but there were seats available on line the day before.

My husband and I have enjoyed ATC for the past 5 years. This theater group has kept us laughing for days over some of the plays. Would recommend it to all.
