So disappointed in the theater's new seats. 6 of us attended (4 over 6' tall) and all of us were uncomfortable. Seats are bolt upright and narrower than the worst coach seats on the worst airline! Really need replacing before I would ever attend another production. However, after telling the director who finds the seats very comfortable and learning we were the ONLY people EVER TO complain, guess we are wrong! Still not returning.

I have attended quite a few productions at the Asheville Community Theatre and it's smaller stage space, 35below. All have been excellent. This community theater has existed since 1946, with Charlton Heston being its first director. Renovations have just been completed, including new seating and an amplified system for those with hearing aids. "The Producers" is simply GREAT theater and GREAT entertainment, and it is over-the-top campy! This show is running until Sept. 10th--go see this FUN production! Metered parking is available on the surrounding streets, with free meter parking on Sundays in downtown Asheville.

My wife and I enjoy theater in NYC, Chicago, LA and London. How great it is to see such talent in a theater where every single seat is great. The Producers is running at ACT in Asheville. The theater just completed a full renovation. Comfortable seats, convenient parking, and plenty of wonderful restaurants to enjoy a meal before the show.

The show started as expected and got even better with every scene. Mel Brooks is a master of making points with comedy. The actors brought the pages to life and the audience response was fantastic. It was a perfect night with plenty of laughs. We talked about the show and several of the actors all the way home. Don't miss The Producers during its run at ACT. It will be a night out you will enjoy.

As a disclaimer I should note that I have performed with ACT in the past. That being said, I am not an easy audience member. ACT's current production "The Producers" is amazing! Very high energy from start to finish. Great theatre at the highest level. The directing, the choreography, the set design and costumes are all excellent. The sound was also great. The renovated theatre is a pleasure to be in and every facet of it, including the acoustic improvements, were all well thought out. The acting is first rate. I could compliment them all but Zacary Landholt simply is Max Bialiystock. Mathew Harper as Leo Bloom is also excellent, as is the rest of the cast. This show is a must see!
