“SLAC is a Treasure and Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

The Salt Lake Acting Company, a professional theatre, has been the true voice of Utah's alternative and progressive brains for decades. It has never been more central and vibrant than it is today, under Executive Producers Mhyre and Fleming. SLAC is a voice that is neither still nor small.

“Free Speech lives in Utah!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

The Salt Lake Acting Company is a superb and unique theatrical offering in Salt Lake City. The company's repertoire is creative: from premiers, to plays written by local writers, to a children's show, to its annual, hilarious, satiric Saturday's Voyeur (running since '78). The employees are friendly. Every seat is a good one. It's in a cool, old neighborhood. They'll run shows that aren't family friendly, which is something I deeply value as theater should sometimes be provocative, dealing with adult themes, and using language that isn't always G-rated. Many theater companies, in their attempt to reach families and to offend anyone, put on well-produced, pleasant, and ultimately forgettable plays, while the Salt Lake Acting Company takes risks and puts on plays that you'll remember and talk about long after the lights have gone down. If I lived in SLC, I'd be a member and attend every show, but living 190 miles away from SLC means I get over there just a few times a year--it's always a worthwhile and unique theatrical experience.

“One of a Kind Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Have loved the Salt Lake Acting Company since it's inception so many years ago. They can do no wrong.... all performances are original in interpretation, fantastic in talent and absolutely spellbinding or hillarious, whichever the case may be. If visiting Salt Lake and you want to take in a theater performance, don't miss the Salt Lake Acting Company. A theater where you can have a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy. It's a unique, adult experience you don't want to miss.

“Celebrating or Just a Great Nite Out !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Here is the place you can kick back, enjoy a glass of wine (bring your own) and be totally entertained. The cast and management treat you like you are royalty. The entertainment is a great value and wonderful experience.This is one of Salt Lakes "Best Entertainers".

“Great venue/Risky Play Choice/Spirited Portrayals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

We went for the first time to see the play about Twain's influence on Ulysses Grant's writing of his memoirs, which had won a couple awards but never before been produced. The fact that the well regarded playwright chose SLAC for its premier reflects its excellent reputation. The play was enjoyable and well produced. The acting was great. And it's wonderful to be in such a small theater, where you feel close to the action. One suggestion: don't get seats in the back row, where the seats are not raised above the seats directly in front of them so it's hard to see over the heads in front of you. The other rows are nicely cantilevered.
