The Tenors had a fantastic Christmas program. It was varied, inspirational, beautiful harmony, great personalities, extremely talented. I would think he is my favorite, then the next song I would think no, he's my favorite. All 4 are my favorites! The facility is beautiful and conveniently located.

I have been here twice and although this venue is pretty, it lacks in some comfort levels. 1) The seats are too close together. I really wish venues would design seating so you don't feel you are on top of one another. 2) If you are in the middle of a row, be sure to use the restroom beforehand and... More

When Gregory Maguire set out to breathe new life into an already beloved tale, I wonder if he could have possibly had an inkling of an idea that WICKED would one day take the world of Broadway by storm... specifically one involving tornadic activity. Captivating audiences of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, WICKED evokes every emotion imaginable, culminating in truly... More

This is a nice place. It's downtown, close to all the attractions. We watch Lee Ann Womack in concert. It was great. It don't hold a lot of people, but you can see the stage from almost every seat.

This is a pretty & historic theatre in the center of downtown. We enjoyed the show. Patrons should be aware that the lobby is quite compact and there are long lines for the toilets at intermission. Really enjoyed the concert.

Attended the Ben Sollee show with my wife. It was a great experience. The staff was great, seats were comfortable, and the acoustics were great. I look forward to the next show at The Brown.

I'd never heard of the Kentucky Center before last year when I stumbled onto cheap tickets to a concert by the a capella group Home Free. My husband & I went alone to the show & were totally surprised at how nice the Bomhard Theater is. (From what I understand, the Bomhard is the smaller of the two theaters in... More
