“Great place to see a production”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

One family tradition that we have is to see a play at Actors during Christmas. We have seen A Christmas Story there a couple of times and have enjoyed it immensely. The seating is such that there are no bad seats. They had a cut out of a (big) kid with his face missing (that's where YOUR face goes) wearing a pink fuzzy rabbit eared pajamas that his aunt made for him. So anyone could stand behind the cut out and replace the missing face with theirs for a great photo opp.

“Jolly good show, chap!!!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Actors Theatre of Louisville has some of the best plays! Louisville is blessed to have a fine arts program, and Actors is no exception. The plays are top-notch; the sets are amazing; the actors are the finest. Best of all... you can come dressed to the nines, or you can wear bluejeans... Louisville is very eclectic!

“A Gem in River City!”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Catch a play at Actor's Theater - wonderful variety and quality professional actors and playwrites. Theatres are small and quaint (one is in the round). Last minute tickets available at rush prices often. If you are in around Halloween don't miss Dracula; around Christmas options are A Christmas Carol or A Christmas Story and both are great for all ages. You cannot go wrong with any production here - we have had season tickets for almost 15 years.

“Broadway in Louisville”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I visited the theatre during the 36th Humana Festival and it was a great experience, the venue is lovely. I’ve been to NY on several occasions and went to various Broadway shows; I can honestly say the Actors Theater of Louisville actors and plays are comparable to those of NY. I truly enjoyed “How We Got On” by Idris Goodwin, it was written very well and flowed with finesse!
