Best Theater Company
Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte
Actor’s Theatre doesn’t seem to know how to make a mistake. Whether they program offbeat musicals (The Great American Trailer Park Musical), edgy comedies (Natural Selection) or pertinent dramas (The Oldest Profession), ATC is unerringly simpatico with their loyal audience. When they bring back popular oldies — something no other local company even attempts — loyalists and new converts stand in line. Beyond sustaining the highest quality, ATC is among the small handful of established local companies that are nurturing start-ups, helping out homeless fledglings like Epic Arts Rep, Pi Productions and the new Queen City Theatre Company.
