Louisville is a shock to the system. You're not in Kansas anymore and Kansas isn't in Kentucky anymore. Must be the pressure of a college town, but this city is cosmopolitan and progressive. That's a big stretch for the South in general, but especially for the old home of ky jelly. I bet half these people don't know what the... More

Cold very cold. We came on a field trip to watch click clack moo and I felt cold just like the cows did in the barn. The show was good and kids loved it. They could turn up the mic volume because the music or laughing drowned out the actors/actresses voices at times. Still a wonderful show and they did... More

We saw Phantom of the Opera here just recently and had an amazing time. The whole place is great and the people are courteous! I don't believe there would be a bad seat at this place. Great sound and viewing!

We recently saw Phantom of the Opera here. The KCA never disappoints. Wonderful accoustics and a pleasant experience.

I received 2 tickets for my birthday and this was my 1st Visit to this theater. It is a beautiful theater and I had absolutely no issues finding our seats or getting a program guide. The staff was all helpful and I don't think they were any bad seats in the entire theater. Overall I will definitely be back to... More

I've been to The Kentucky Center and the Brown Theatre for several productions and have enjoyed them all. The theatres are always very clean and the stages are clearly visible from all the seats. The staff at these places are the best: everyone from The Kentucky Center's parking attendant to the ushers are the nicest and most helpful people I've... More

We had seats in row B, and it was amazing! This place is big, beautiful and clean, and I don't think there's a bad seat anywhere. You can buy alcoholic drinks in the lobby. Plenty of bathrooms, and there is an indoor parking garage. Just awesome!!

We watched Phantom of the Opera and sat row G on orchestra right. The view would be great from any of the seats available. There is enough leg room for people to actually walk through when getting to their seats. They have small plastic boosters for smaller children to sit on, but sometimes it makes them taller than their parents... More

We took our daughter and her friend here for the Dan and Phil show. I was nervous about dropping them off and being able to find them when it was over. It was so easy! We were able to pull up right in front of the stairs. We watched them walk in. Then we went and parked. The garage was... More

What a nice venue for a show we took in with our family. Located in downtown, there are plenty of places to park, eat and walk around when waiting for the show. A nice overview park of the river is a short walk away and recommended. The seating in the theater was very nice and the sound was very good.... More
