from ANGELS IN AMERICA[part 1&2] to A CHRISTMAS CAROL have been
highlghts of our theatre going.The efforts of the directors have brought

Actors Theatre always continues to impress me with the quality of their productions and the value of entertainment they provide the audience. In the theatre world where musical classics tend to reign supreme, Actors Theatre brings fresh and innovative theatre to the Phoenix area which is captivating, insightful, and satisfying. For example their recent production of THIS gives the audience serious themes and ideals to think about even after the proverbial curtain has descended. Yet the show is able to make you roar with laughter while the characters meander through difficult themes. The only thing I would change about Actors Theatre would be to have them perform year round to give their audiences more plays to adore and take pleasure in! Keep up all the AMAZING work guys! !

On Thu Dec 24, 2009, I wrote the following to Matthew Wiener, Producing Artistic Director:
We all LOVED "A Christmas Carol!" [I loved it because besides being entertaining, this adaptation was powerfully relevant to our times - especially our economic situation.] My 7-yr-old niece, Nevertiti, hadn't seen a musical because all she could imaging happening in a theatres is a movie. She was awe-struck throughout-especially when the Magidc started with the door knocker and Marley making his appearance. When we left the theatre, she said, "This is the best Christmas ever! This show was awesome!"
My nephews Deveon and Devante, 9 and 13 respectively, were a little more reserved, but they kept talking about the show and what they liked about it. And they said that they really enjoyed it!
Sp thank you so much! You made our Holiday! Keep doing what only you can do!

Not sure what you need here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase its funding.
