Wall Street Journal drama critic calls APT one of the best in the country

Terry Teachout is probably the second most respected theater critic in the United States behind Ben Brantley of The New York Times, who is the acknowledged king of all critics.

But Teachout, critic for the Wall Street Journal, isn’t far behind. And after a recent visit to review Anton Chekhov's "The Seagull," he called Wisconsin's very own American Players Theatre in Spring Green the "finest classical-repertory company in the U.S."

That’s the whole United States, and it’s incredible to get that kind of honor from such a respected critic.

If you haven’t been to Spring Green and seen a play in one of their two venues, this is a trip well worth making.

Teachout's review of APT’s production of "The Seagull" is here, concluding the piece by calling the company's rendition the best he has ever seen.

Very heady words for a Wisconsin company, and something we can all take pride in.
