    "The plays [...] deserve to be celebrated. [That] so many past Humana premieres have gone on to wider audiences and captured major awards is an extraordinary testament to Masterson, his colleagues, and their predecessors, and the reason so many of us keep coming back."

For those who love new and original theatre, Humana Festival 2011 is a strong pick for those who love the theatre and who want a sampling of the best of the newest."

    The Midwest Book Review

    "In view of this year's outstanding repertoire of new works, I wouldn't be surprised to see many of them getting additional stagings at theaters across the nation in the near future."

    Dave Zuchowski, Travelin' Tales

    "Actors Theatre of Louisville wrapped the 35th annual Humana Festival of New American Plays last Sunday, drawing the curtain on an incredibly strong lineup of successful plays that feel finished and fully realized, ready to go forth and lead out their lives on the American stage."
