Mad Cow is a local theater company with talented actors and a unique, comfortable, and intimate theater setting located within the charming Church Street Station area of downtown Orlando. No seat is a bad one. Lots of leg room, with easy maneuvering to/from seats. Ticket prices are fair, reasonable and a bargain for the theater experience provided. We've seen a... More

Great acting can be counted on at this community theater, very professional acting and directing. Very affordable also. Two theaters have a play each always running. The small black box type theater has more avant guard, thought provoking plays, the large main theater has a good variety of musicals and dramas. Park at a garage at Church Street, Sun Trust...

Visiting from Cleveland, Ohio, our son suggested we all attend Mad Cow's production of "1776." Absolutely brilliantly produced with excellent casting and blocking. The multiracial female cast also brought new insights and nuances to the script. The pleasant space is intimate with good sight lines except for a post and the seats behind it (which were left empty and ...... More

I had been keeping an eye on Avenue Q tickets and kept waiting too long and it was selling out. I was happy to see it was extended and bought tickets over the phone. I got an email confirmation and picked up the tickets when we arrived. We got a drink before the show and we were asked if we... More

A staple of Orlando's art scene for 15+ years, Mad Cow Theatre is THE place to go see a show. It doesn't matter what they are putting on, you are in for a really wonderful, talented, professional night of theater. After years of moving around spaces in downtown Orlando, Mad Cow now has a home on Church Street, which makes... More

Went to see 'The Art' at Mad Cow Theatre last night. What an entertaining evening, thoroughly enjoyed it. The theatre is quite small but very comfortable with plenty of leg room. All the staff are friendly and inviting. Only three men in the cast but all superb actors. You will have missed an excellent production if you don't go and... More

We went to see "You Can't take it with you" at the Mad Cow Theater and My wife and I both enjoyed the play and the beautiful theater. We will be back again soon to enjoy another of their productions

This is what we went to see at the Mad Cow Theater. It is a small theater and you felt like a part of the play. You could almost hear them breath. Perfect play for this theater. My brother-in-law goes to this theater regularly and says that the quality of the plays they bring is consistent.

As a very avid theater goer, I must rank Mad Cow at the top of the list. Beautiful, newly built theater complex downtown that includes two small, very intimate theaters consistently delivering top notch performances. Their fare typically leans toward contemporary, drama type plays - not many musicals here if you're looking for Hello Dolly or Cats go elsewhere fast,... More
