Been there a few times for meetings of large groups.

I've not taken in a play there, but, it is a nice venue. My kids have had several large scale meetings there including when my oldest was there for Governors Scholars.

We were very disappointed with this museum. They had two special exhibits the day we visited, Kurt Vonnegut and a photography exhibit. The symbolism was lost on us. The permanent collection was pitiful. We were happy there was no charge.

Part of the University of Kentucky - this midsized concert hall hosts various performances throughout the year, some have been extraordinary. Check the website or newspapers for the current offerings.
