Lounge area and concessions greet you at the door. The theatre itself is small and intimate with a large stage and great sound. There is not a bad seat in the house. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

Worst play I have ever seen and that includes all the high school plays. There has to be more talent in Charlotte than what we saw tonight. We actually left at intermission because it was just too painful to sit through another hour!!

I've enjoyed the Actors Theatre of Charlotte for quite a while now. I am surprised that there are not more reviews of this place. In fact, I just added the first photos that this place has had on TripAdvisor. The theater location is very convenient....More

Went to see "The Great American Trailer Park Musical". The show was awesome - very well produced and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. My bar drink, while pricey, was ...generous, to say the least. It lasted the entire show!...More

This is what live theater should be. Really good professional productions in an intimate setting- Have seen both their plays this summer- both excellent, especially River City which ranks among the best plays I ever saw anywhere, including Broadway and London.More

This small and very intimate is the perfect place to see a play, up close and personal. We say River City by Diana Grisanti. While the play was good, it seemed to suffer from too much set on too small a stage. That's the Director's...More

I'm always impressed with the talent, but truthfully, I usually like about one, maybe two shows a year, although I go to most of them. The shows are often weird, and I leave the playhouse scratching my head. This place has enormous potential. I love...More
