“The House That Jack Built”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My wife and I went to this play not having any idea what it was about. This was the first time we had gone to a play with no previous knowledge about it. The plot was entertaining and easy to understand. The actors were excellent, and the characters were relatable to everyone in the audience. Jennie and I both laughed out loud at the humor and fought back tears at the thought provoking sentimentality of the theme. It was wonderful.

“Must visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Live theater at its best is found right downtown. Acting, stage sets, and lighting done with great professionalism in a beautiful restored theater. Several new plays presented each season. Have enjoyed IRT for dozens of years. A must see for those who enjoy theater presentations.

“Indy's Dramatic Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Parking can be a problem, but every time I bisited was with a large bus for a school trip. Cars probably fare better.

I applaud the employees who managed to herd the children in quietly and efficiently. I've seen four different plays here and have been impressed with stage manage, stage craft, acting, and the discussion afterwards.

This is for my students the first brush with the theatre. I am grateful that it is an excellent introduction. Kudos IRT.

It is also close to Circle Center Mall for a qucik lunch too.

“On a whim- worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went to Indy for a weekend getaway and stumbled upon this historic-style theater while walking around the downtown area. Purchased tickets right then-and-there for a play that evening. Scored 2 tickets in the balcony for $20 each! Well-acted production, building is beautiful, theater was wonderfully-intimate.
