  • Published Reviews

    "One of the most prestigious showcases for original theater in the country."

    The New York Times

    "It starts with a script that fights its way past nearly 1,000 competing stories to the top of the stack and onto the final bill. It ends with the thrill of discovery, as audiences experience the new work for the first time... The Humana Festival celebrates a diverse slate of American playwrights in a variety of styles and perspectives, with bright-eyed hopefuls enjoying their first prominent premieres alongside award-winning veterans."

    WFPL Louisville

    "Many of the most critically acclaimed plays of the past three decades have originated here."

    Backstage

    "By my reckoning, the 2012 Humana Festival of New American Plays (the 36th renewal) is the strongest festival in recent memory -- and that's an extraordinary achievement, given that for much of the last year, Actors Theatre of Louisville was without an artistic director."
