    "Recognized internationally as America's major new-play festival."

    Playbill

    "One way to think about the Humana Festival of New American Plays is as an annual index of what's been on the minds of playwrights. It's sort of a dipstick that you can use to check the oil of American culture every spring."

    Dramatics Magazine

    "One of the exciting things about going to Humana is to meet up with playwrights you've never heard of, or whose work you've never seen before, and to spot writers who deserve a wider stage. Playwrights don't get the kind of publicity they used to... Louisville is one of the prime places theaters and audiences ought to look."

    Orlando Sentinel

    "One of the country's highest-profile showcases for new legit writing."
