    "If there is one theme that can connect the Humana plays, it is diversity -- aesthetic as well as demographic... For those who have never attended, it's a bit like the Sundance Film Festival for theatre, only with better bourbon... Netflix may have popularized binge TV-watching, but Humana has a lock on the stage version."

    American Theatre

    "If new plays are the lifeblood of the theatre -- and yes they are, folks! -- then the annual Humana Festival of New American Plays might be compared to the flood of new energy generated by the recent shale oil boom. The festival's production of new works has been prodigious, filling the tributaries of the American theatre with an impressive variety of relevant and enduring works."

    The Columbus Dispatch

    "By every measure, Actors Theatre of Louisville is flourishing under Waters and his team... The Humana Festival bills have been bold, energizing, and diverse."
