The History

Hearkening back to the glory days of Louisville's theater district, the Brown Theatre is a lavish, lovingly restored showplace. State-of-the-art technology combines with Old World splendor to create a performance space as beautiful to look at as it is comfortable to sit in. Seating approximately 1,400 patrons, the Brown stands today as the Grand Dame of Louisville's artistic community.
