“Brown is beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

First visit to The Brown March 2013. Have been to several events at The KY Center for the Arts. Both venues are fabulous. Prety space. Warm, welcoming staff. Really nice options!

awesome show !!! The Elvis Impersonator was spot on. The gentlemen that played Johnny Cash was even better than Johnny.

“Attracts top artists into a variety of venues at amazing prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I just moved to Louisville. We have lived all over the United States and the UK. We just saw Chris Botti at the Brown theater, for under fifty dollars a first tier ticket. Amazing! The Brown is old world when people were shorter. But it is only one of the venues that the Kentucky Center uses. We are planning on seeing two more shows at the Brown theater. And can't wait to see who else will come to this great town.

“Whitney Hall Seats too Small!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The Kentucky center has several theaters, the one on W. Main is Whitney Hall. We visited this theater to watch the Million $ Quartet.

Positives: The show was fabulous! The staff were very friendly and helpful You are allowed to take beverages in.

Negatives: The seats are way too small for the average person and subsequently very uncomfortable. My wife and I had to huddle together to avoid being shouldered by our neighbors. The unfortunate (larger) gentleman in front of us had his trousers pulled down by the tight seat when he stood! Ticket prices seemed too high for this caliber of a theater - spend some money on new seating.
