Encore Michigan

The Abreact

Since the turn of the century, The Abreact has been dedicated to be a platform for up-and-coming Detroit area actors, directors and designers. The Abreact provides an alternative off-Broadway-style approach to casual contemporary theater. Our stage has been shared by fresh-faced recent graduates and tried-and-true local professionals alike, and will remain open to anyone willing to try their hand at cultural excellence. The Abreact motto will continue to be “Free Theater in Detroit!” (But they do accept donations!)
