A great place to see a show, concert or performance. Beautiful art displays inside and outside access to the Belvedere, which has great views of the Ohio River. Dinner tip: park at the venue before dinner and walk across the street to Los Aztecas or a little further down to Bluegrass Brewing Company or Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse.

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.

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!!
