Louisville's Actor's Theatre - A True Community Gem

Can I drop a few names on you? Names like Beth Henley, Naomi Wallace, Arthur Kopit, Tony Kushner, Horton Foote and Marsha Norman?

These major playwrights have all had plays which premiered at Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, through the famous Humana Festival of New American Plays.

Actors is a Tony-award-winning theater organization that enjoys deep ongoing support for its year-round calendar of productions. Actor's Theare stages more than 500 performances of 20 productions in a year. Productions vary from contemporary to classics – and classical – fare; from full, multi-act set pieces to 10-minute plays.

For example, the coming season will include performances of “The Kite Runner,” Neil Simon’s “Barefoot in the Park,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” holiday favorites “Dracula” and “A Christmas Story,” and of course, a raft of new plays with the Humana Festival.

The comedy troupe Second City also will visit for a month, to perform a Louisville-centric show. 

Talent also flows out from Louisville as well. Most recently Actors announced that its Associate Artistic Director, Sean Daniels, has been tapped to direct a fall Broadway-aimed play, ‘Under My Skin,” which is based the life of “The Nanny” television sitcom star Fran Dreschner. 

He will be working for show backers Marcy Carsey, the television producer behind “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne;” Tony Award nominee Jeff Davis of "Rock of Ages", and Tony winner Steve Traxler of "Hair.”

Actors Theatre enjoys one of the largest per capita subscription audiences in the U.S. More than 200,000 people attend performances at the theater’s historic Main Street complex. The organization also has deep roots in the community, offering internships, educational programs, workshops, artists in schools programs and other outreach efforts.

There’s much more information about this 40-plus year old organization at its website,
