We went today with our high school class and had a wonderful experience! The show was amazing, and the after show questioning and answering time with cast& crew gave us a better perspective and appreciation of what you do!

On impulse, I signed up for Improv for Life class. What can I say? It blew me away! I really opened up to new possibility in my life and I'm so grateful for the lessons. :) Thanks, John.

A great experience from the point you walk in the lobby, to the Prologue before the show, to the magnificent production I saw. The company’s commitment and caring for the experience they want the audience to have is evident everywhere! More...

Saturday eve was my first time attending American Stage to see Mama Mia. What a privilege to see this extraordinary ensemble of highly talented actors as they danced, sang and acted! It was so much fun to be in the audience surrounded by super-fans of the movie and Abba songs. I am still singing the songs in my head today. Please bring them back again next year for an encore performance! More...

Very quaint theater in Downtown St. Pete. Their plays are always interesting and well done. The actors come from all over and make this theater the perfect little gem. The theater is small so you’re really a part of the experience— you kind of feel like you’re on the set of a tv filming. Check out one of their shows! 5 stars ⭐️ More...

I just moved back to the area. The first thing I did was get tickets for 5 of the shows & last night got all 6 for next season. Great theater for these shows,
impressive set designs and top notch acting. I'd love to see August Wilson's plays repeated (missed 2). This season just baffled me....made me think for days. BRAVO.

it was a great show. BUT if you can make a announcement before hand, that women who put on loads of perfume, could make others cough or sneeze or other wise be allergic as i was last night. i stood up wind and still could not control my sneeze or coughing. just a friendly reminder....that even though you sit outside, still dont mean you have to cover yourself with it. but great show!!!! love me some matt and scott!

American Stage is a point of pride in Tampa Bay with first-rate productions that reflect current trends and ideas, revive classics, offer contemporary humor and cutting-edge artistry, all performed by and staged by professionals who make the experience authentic and immersive. What's more, the company offers comfortable seating and the assistance of a friendly, efficient staff. My personal wish: That the company adopt a black box theater company in residence to perform more low-budget, vanguard fare. Not sure how or where this can be done, but make it so! More...

Both leads deliver a poignant and realistic performance throughout the play that speak to the vast injustices and violations of privacy experienced by documented citizens and undocumented immigrants alike!

I have been a member of American Stage for the last several years. It is a fantastic date night- the plays are well done and the seats are perfect in every place in the house. After a visit or two, every guest feels like family.
This past play, The Royale, was one of the best plays I have ever seen here or anywhere. The acting, directing and effects were absolutely top-notch! It left me speechless, moved and best of all, thinking of the complexities of society. I love American Stage for all it offers.

The AST is the only theater commited to professional dramatic productions in Tampa Bay. There is not a bad seat in the house and shows are thought provoking. I recommend the theater highly.

Today's production of Strait of Gibraltar, while effective, is more mixed. Effective at confronting the Constitutionality (or lack thereof) of the Patriot Act, but committing a stereo typically unflattering view of the Jewish mother in the process. Simply unnecessary to achieve the writers ends. That said, a solid performance by the actors involved.

The play bad Jews was amazing while it Had some comedy because the characters could be very funny, it had a very deep spiritual remembrance of the holocaust and what it meant to future generations And how if we don’t live to tell about how it will just be a very bad memory and forgotten about.

30 August 2018

I attended a performance of "The Producers" on Sunday, May 6th at Demen's Landing. Along with a friend and my dog we were instantly swept into the musical story line and completely engaged and charmed with each of the superb actors' characters. The music, costumes, stage props and background effectively helped propel us through the musical from beginning to end. I especially enjoy St. Petersburg for all its artistic communities and I deeply appreciate the presence of American Stage as a integral part of it. Thank you for a wonderful night of song, dance, humor and story. Kudos to all involved for an outstanding production!!! More...

Quoting Hal Freedman, here: "Last (Friday) night we went to the opening of 'The Invisible Hand at American Stage'. Incredibly powerful, gripping and thought provoking. The mix of Capitalism and Terrorism; greed and saving your own skin; unintended consequences!" More...

A visit to American Stage has become a part of our family tradition while visiting the Gulf Coast in January. We enjoy the feeling of intimacy with the action on stage ,being drawn not just emotionally into the action, but almost physically as well. We have seen the last two productions of August Wilson's plays and the performances have been " over the top sensational". I have a sense of what life in a racially divided city in the 20th century must have been like for those who were struggling to survive and care for their families. I would commend this theater and its productions to anyone who appreciates the art of live theater. More...

H
30 October 2016

If you miss Tartuffe, you will be missing a play that, even though adapted (by American Stage's commission to Robert Caisley) from a 400 year old French Farce by Moliere, is as topical and meaningful as today's headlines! I mean today's, since a few lines may be added that even I have not seen. It harpoons and lampoons the current political climate from both sides of the aisle! Just see it...everything clicks from the cast to the set to the wonderful adaptation! More...
