Humana Festival 2008 Report: First Impressions

posted by Nick Cernoch at 3:31 PM
Hello everyone, I'm coming to you live from Louisville, KY on the first day of Theatre Professionals Weekend at the Humana Festival of New Plays. This world-reknowned festival takes place at the Actor's Theatre of Louisville.
I'm here with Furious Theatre co-founders and co-artistic directors Sara Hennessy and Damaso Rodriguez, as well as former Actor's Theatre apprentice Megan Goodchild. We're about 90 minutes away from seeing our first of 2 plays this evening, but I wanted to hop online and give everyone a few first impressions.
So far the hospitality of the Actor's Theatre staff has been great, their Director of Development was waiting for us at the airport at 8:30am to give us a ride to the lovely Galt House, our home for the weekend. After recovering from our red-eye flight, we have tickets in hand for the 7 (yes 7!) new plays we'll be seeing.
Allright, I'm about to head out to a pre-show dinner and drink...first play on the docket at 8pm:
This Beautiful City by Steven Cosson and Jim Lewis.
Signing out for now...much more to come.
