Actors Theatre 2018/2019 Season This fall, Actors Theatre of Louisville kicks off the Brown-Forman Series with The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the Tony Award-winning play based on the popular novel about a mathematics prodigy who is autistic. Obie Award-winning playwright and Humana Festival alumnus Lucas Hnath's work takes the stage in Louisville once again with A Doll's House, Part 2, which imagines protagonist Nora's return 15 years after the final, iconic moments of Henrik Ibsen's seminal masterpiece A Doll's House. Louisville audiences can once again celebrate the holidays at the Theatre with Fifth Third Bank's Dracula and A Christmas Carol. Last year's sold-out production of Joe Mantello's adaptation of David Sedaris's hilarious The Santaland Diaries is back by popular demand. Dominique Morisseau's Pipeline thrusts audiences into the classroom in this wrenching portrayal of a mother and son wrestling with the American education system's "school-to-prison pipeline" for men of color. In the new year, consummate showman Hershey Felder showcases beloved standards like "God Bless America," "There's No Business Like Show Business" and "White Christmas" in Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin — a meld of song and story in a love letter to the man whose work continues to define the great American songbook. The Season will culminate in the 43rd Humana Festival of New American Plays, a world-renowned opportunity to see groundbreaking, brand-new work by American theatre's most talented playwrights. Louisville Ballet Launches its 2018-2019 Season of Romance Louisville Ballet is thrilled to launch its 2018-2019 Season of Romance, starting with a contemporary world premiere of Romeo + Juliet on September 7-8 at Whitney Hall, The Kentucky Center. This season, you will enjoy an evening of ballet inspired by the powerful music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the return of the raw and emotional Human Abstract. Do not miss the holiday tradition of The Brown-Forman Nutcracker, as well as the timeless classic Cinderella. As always, Choreographers' Showcase brings you up close and personal with the extraordinary dancers, this year in a new setting in collaboration with the Kentucky College of Art and Design. "As artists, we give everything we have within ourselves during a performance. We become completely raw and vulnerable on stage," said Robert Curran, Louisville Ballet artistic & executive director. "To truly love someone, you must always be in that raw and vulnerable state, even if it exposes you to pain. Otherwise you haven't truly loved someone at all. We are excited to bring this romantic intensity to the stage to explore all the different facets of love." Get romantically involved with Louisville Ballet this season! Season ticket packages start at only $63.50 for two shows and offer access to exclusive priority patron benefits, including up to 30% off single ticket prices, access to the best seats before they go on sale to the public, concierge service and complimentary ticket exchanges through Louisville Ballet's Box Office.
