    "Signs of vitality, flashes of brilliance, displays of theatrical invention... The Humana Festival remains a must-attend event for theater professionals across the country."

    Time

    "Reading the festival's plays gives one an excellent overview of the quality and range of the offerings and makes me look forward to seeing next year's Humana Festival and future volumes in this fine series."

    Richard Weigel, Bowling Green Daily News

    "The economic downturn has not slowed this theatrical juggernaut."

    Back Stage

    "The place to take the country's theatrical temperature. Because it offers its audiences the chance to tap into the zeitgeist and be among the first to see plays bound for a longer life, the festival draws agents, producers, actors, artistic directors, playwrights, critics and theater-loving civilians to Actors Theatre of Louisville to hear what American playwrights have to say about the state of the world."
