“A gem in downtown!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time at Mad Cow Theatre and we were impressed. My husband and I love the performance arts and can't believe we had never heard of this theatre before. The location is new and wonderful. The theatres are small and intimate which makes for an extraordinary experience. We will definitely be back!

“Mad Cow Always Excellent”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I've been to the Mad Cow Theatre several times and each time has far surpassed my expectations.

Coming from Chicago, theatre was one of the things I missed the most when moving to the Orlando area, until my daughter took me to Mad Cow. FANTASTIC.... Love it, Love it, Love it.

Friendly staff, a House Manager that really enjoys his work (David is such a pleasure to meet and talk to) and exceptional actors and actresses. Each performance was outstanding.

Go, you will not be disappointed.

“Dream Girls Mad Cow Orlando”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

When you first walk into the very small and spartan Mad Cow theater in Orlando you wonder just how good can this place be? Well, don't give it another though as after a number of performances we are convinced that this is a place you do not want to miss! After a run on Broadway Dream Girls has made it to Orlando at the Mad Cow and the show was absolutely fantastic. We had first row seats (never a bad seat at Mad Cow) and can not say enough about the quality of the singing, acting, the musicians, lighting and staging! Never a "slow" moment in this two hour production (with one short intermission). The vocal harmonies, facial expressions, dancing were all top rate and for just a few dollars you will get a fantastic experience. As the theater grows it would be a real nice finishing touch if they could invest in stage mics for all as at times the vocals were a bit lost and without a full PA the singers could not have access to just a touch of reverb and echo to fully enhance their voices. (Which, trust me, they will blow you away with what they got!) Staff is excellent, rest rooms are small so run at intermission, great access to the old Church St station that is slowly being revitalized.

“Check it Out!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Last night was my first time attending a play at this theater but it will be the first of many to follow. It is a very pleasant theater, intimate setting, great seating so no "big head" issues.

The cast were spot-on with their portrayals of the characters.

Don't miss out - be sure to check them out!
