    "The Humana Festival of New American Plays, now in its 34th year, has been called the crossroads of American theater... But whatever you call it, Humana is a great annual bazaar, camp meeting, reunion and, just as it says, theatrical festival -- because it's also a lot of fun."

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    "Just a few days were needed to witness Masterson and company's triumph. And that's not too strong a term for a rejuvenated new play festival in these recessionary times, when so many theatres are scaling back. Credit the Louisville-bases Humana Foundation and other committed donors for keeping the lights on, but credit Masterson, a dozen or so intrepid playwrights, and an extraordinary team of stage artists, actors, and artisans for giving us something to see."

    Dramatics magazine

    "For the country's theatre freaks, March is the time to head en masse to Louisville. That's where the Humana Festival of New American Plays gives drama queens a chance to see the same kind fresh work for the stage that South by Southwest attendees look for on screen."

    The Austin Chronicle
