“Great Venue!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We love to attend the Broadway plays that come to Louisville here. It is a comfortable theatre with great views from most seats. We love to be on the floor or the first balcony toward the front so that we have a good view of the stage. We have seen over 10 plays here and always love to attend. The cost is comparable to other cities and at times the paper will run specials which allows us to attend an extra showing a year. Its a nice place to get a little dressed up for a date night and enjoy an evening performance. We have taken our adult kids as well and it is fun for the family as well.

“Beautiful theater, lovely performance”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

I went to Louisville to see Louisville Ballet at the Kentucky Center, which is a spectacularly designed and well appointed theater offering a very well equipped stage, good audience sight lines, and comfortable seating. The ballet company, sensitively and passionately directed by Bruce Simpson, far exceeded my expectations in terms of artistry, technique, and production values. In particular the male corps was outstanding. Do go to one of their productions if you have the opportunity.

“Broadway Series”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I am a season ticket holder for theBroadway Series at the Ky Center. All plays this season are new to our area. I prefer orchestra seating. My next choice and a little less expensive would be Grand Tier.
Drinks and snacks available in lobby.

“See the Kentucky Show!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The Kentucky Show! is a 32 minute film about the history, heritage and people of KY. It's well worth the time spent. The film runs on the hour and is a great way to start your tour/visit to Louisville attractions whether you're a Louisville native or a visitor. While you're there, be sure to visit the Belvedere that over looks the Ohio River.
