My family has been to so many theater productions in the East and Middle Tennessee, as well as Southwest Virginia and this production is by far our favorite of them all.

My family and I saw a billboard advertisement for "A Christmas Carol" at the Clarence Brown Theater and decided to try something different for a night out. What a great decision that was! We loved it! There really isn't a bad seat in house. The actors did a great job. I would definitely recommend this. I am already looking for... More

My family has had season tickets to the Clarence Brown for awhile now! We have not been to a show that we did not absolutely love. The acting quality is the best in Knoxville and the atmosphere is great. There is not a bad seat in the place! The stage is the perfect size and you can see all the... More

The show was done very well. The sound was good everywhere and really, there wasn't a bad seat. Acting and singing were strong. The intermission was long enough to make it to the bathrooms in the next building.

Miracle Woker with professional and student combined cast. Very well done. Easy garage parking for venue (on UT campus), with guard on duty when patrons arrived (directions on website).

I really enjoyed the production and I think that this small production company does wonders with the set design and together with the downtown area and world's fair park and restaurants it's a great way to spend the day :)

While in Knoxville enjoying its natural beauty, take time to visit Clarence Brown Theatre. "The Miracle Worker" runs through Sunday, October 19. You will leave inspired...a wonderful production!
