The opportunity to see 6 plays in a weekend is great BUT, inevitably all the plays are not great. Two were terrific, one not fathomable and two pretty good. The venues are very good- right downtown with adjacent parking.

We saw one of the Humana festival plays, and both the acting an production aspects were really impressive. I dragged my(teen) kids, but they really loved it and we had a great talk about it. One minor complaint--they didn't blink lights in the lobby to...More

Went to the 37th Humana Festival of New American Plays and saw "Appropriate" about a dysfunctional family. The acting was overall good, the play was about something most everyone can relate to and the theater is lovely: intimate and good acoustics. A very nice regional...More

At one time this was one of the premier regional theaters in the entire world equal to the Guthrie and Steppenwolf. In the past few years, "Actors" has capitulated to the local mindset & attitude and unfortunately is bordering on "pedestrian." I hope the theater...More

This is a show you don't want to miss. The characters are so surprisingly complex. I don't think I really liked any of them but had great empathy for them. And, the plot was compelling. The audience around me was buzzing with questions during intermission....More

Friends and I used to have season tickets and went once a month. It was great. Lunch then the matinee. A wide variety of plays are done very well.

We have been attending ATL for years; the quality of the directing, the selection of plays and the talent of the actors has always been very good, but then it got even better. In March there is the festival of new American Plays.

We went and saw the presentation of Dracula a couple of years ago. The play was very well acted. The actor who portrayed Renfield clearly took over the show. He was funny and serious with his quips and one liners. We had a great time.
