My husband and I have had the pleasure of seeing several shows at The Kate. Every seat is excellent in the small theatre, the balcony included. The sound has always been excellent as we have seen several musical acts here, and an excellent sound system is very important! There is a little museum of sorts in honor of Kate. There... More

I read the reviews on this place and all were glowing but I still wasn't expecting this place to be so small. It truly is the size of a school cafeteria but with incredible acoustics. Saw Hammer of the Gods and they were over the top good. When people say there arent any bad seats in the house, they truly... More

Theatre seats approx. 250 and there are NO bad seats. The venue itself is a beautiful renovation of a theatre build in 1911 -- the place was gutted and totally rebuilt inside. The attractions presented here are a nice mixture with something for everyone -- young or old. Lovely museum area focused on Katharine Hepburn's life at her home in... More

Easy to get to, ample parking in rear, and extremely helpful and friendly staff. Seating is comfortable and on an incline, and all seats offer a good view of the stage or screen. Bathrooms are first rate; snacks and drinks are served at intermission. A very well kept and well run establishment living up to its benefactor's name.

There is not a bad seat in the house. We have been here on three occasions and all were great. The most recent was the Les Paul Trio. We went with two other couples, two of each who are musicians. We all felt that the show was beyond fabulous. The trio still plays every Monday night at the Iridium in... More

Saw Tuck & Patty here. The auditorium is small so every seat is good. The place is a mini Katherine Hepburn memorial. I recommend you visit this Center for a pleasant evening. AND if you aren't familiar with the music of Tuck & Patty, you are missing ou ton one of the great duo's of our life.

A beautiful building that brings in top talent in the arts. It also brings in more experimental groups. Seats are comfortable. Staff are incredibly accommodating and eager.
