“Laugh and Have Dinner as well”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The acting company has plays that are very entertaining. However, once during the season you can pack a lunch,grab a bottle of wine and enjoy the satire that is chosen for the evening. If you are overly religious then I would suggest that you do not attend as they make a satire out of politics and the mormon church. If you have an open mind,then sit back,relax and enjoy

“Just what Salt Lake City needs!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great acting, challenging plays, and a cozy venue in a old Mormon chapel - just what most theatre goers like!

“Intimate theater original plays”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is a theater inside a renovated church. Good seating with no bad views. Outside food and beverages allowed although there is a concession available. Many plays are original and there is an annual "spoof" on Salt Lake City year in review that is hilarious! This is a very progressive theater that brings forth bold, thought provoking plays that stay with you.

“SLAC is a Treasure and Institution”
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!”
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.
