They have been doing "A Christmas Carol" for 40 years now. This is a lovely space for plays and we have attended many plays over the years. That being said, this was not one of our favorite interpretations of the classic. It wasn't bad but there have been more memorable experiences in the past. As much as we have loved... More

The plays put on here are top notch and there's just not a bad seat in the house. I have season tickets but if you want to pick and choose you have to see Dracula and Christmas Carol that are offered annually. You will not be disappointed.

We had the privilege to see Dracula at the Theatre this past weekend. I would highly suggest this play. You don't have to be a fan of Theatre to enjoy Dracula, very entertaining throughout the entire production.

Ended up in Louisville by accident, after dinner at the Spaghetti Factory we went for a walk through town and stumbled into the Actors presentation of Dracula. What a wonderful Halloween treat!! Tremendous acting, great characters, great scenery, and excellent experience. Can't wait to find time to go back!

Centrally located in downtown Louisville, Actors Theatre is surely one of the best regional theatres anywhere. Each spring they host the Humana Festival of New American Plays, welcoming theatre professionals from all over the world. Very popular with locals and tourists. Not to be missed.

The theater was nice. Saw Macbeth there and was very impressed with the performance and the director's artistic license for the production. Close to restaurants but some close up early so check before you go. There is a restaurant downstairs called Milkwood which was jumping after the show was over. Unfortunately, I didn't check it out. I thought ticket prices... More

Wonderful place to see plays and theater locally. The ushers are always very accommodating, pleasant and have always been welcoming. I don't think there is really a bad sear in the house as all the seats have great viewing of the stage. Wonderful drink service and they have a restaurant within the same building as well as attached parking. We... More

I recently attended the 2016 production of Dracula, which Actors has been putting on in various forms for the last 20 years. The show was campy and fun, scary at times, performed in a small room in the round. I really enjoyed the show and the location is right downtown. Attend if you dare!

When I lived here I had season tickets. Now that I live elsewhere and visit, I was glad to return. All of the seats on the main stage are pretty good. If you have mobility issues, there are no rails as you go down the stairs to your seat. Go to the theater and enjoy yourself.

This is the 21st consecutive season that Dracula has raged onto the Bingham Theatre stage at the Actors Theatre, and residents of Louisville are extremely lucky, because this is the only production of Dracula that runs anywhere every single year. Originally by John L. Balderston and Hamilton Deane and adapted from Bram Stoker's novel of the same name, this version... More
