Saw the Louisville Orchestra with guests Pink Martini and was very pleased. The theater is very beautiful. The seats are extremely close together and I felt quite confined. Great location and easy to walk to from the Galt House hotel.

First-ever visit here for Gordon Lightfoot concert. Very beautiful and stately interior. Seats are tightly spaced as one previous reviewer noted. Sound quality of the performance was excellent. Volume was just right. Staff was courteous and welcoming.

I would not get first or second row, the stage is raised and it would be better ten rows back or so

We were in row B near center and it was perfect but for the Nutcracker I think I personally would prefer to be a little further back and at more of an elevation.
