Humana Festival of New American Plays

February 29, 2012

Through April 15

Actors Theatre of Louisville

 Like me, are you excited by new theater works, impeccably produced? Then March is road-trip time, thanks to the Humana Festival of New American Plays, celebrating its 36th year in Kentucky. The remarkable festival has given audiences first looks at a batch of Tony-, Pulitzer- and other prize-winners/audience pleasers including “Dinner with Friends,” “The Gin Game,” “Crimes of the Heart” and “Becky Shaw.” This year, I’m unfamiliar with the seven works or their writers—and I’m looking forward to seeing every last one of them.
