It's been over 20 years since I've seen Actors Theatre presentation of Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" and frankly I was disappointed with the current interpretation of this classic. The presentation I remember followed the classic tale. Without providing any specific spoilers, this adaptation had...More

For a one man show, this show had it all. Lots of humor, props and an occasional curse word. This gentleman did a superb job of remembering his lines for a full hour, and it was VERY ENJOYABLE. The only negative comment was the ticket...More

We enjoyed seeing a production of Dracula while we were in Louisville. The theater is in the round and reminded me of the Guthrie in the twin cities. Convenient location, affordable prices for live theater.

My wife and I saw Santaland diaries, not what I was expecting but worth the price of admission. We very much enjoy seeing different shows at the Theatre.

Great play with good acting and singing. The costumes, scenery, and special effects were amazing. Intimate venue with comfortable seating and good legroom. This is going to be a new tradition for us!

The caliber of acting and both the quality and creativity exhibited were compelling. Although I knew the story, I was captivated throughout the evening. The show was in the Pamela Brown Auditorium which is a cozier setting that allows patrons to be reasonably close to...More
