Forty Years at the Kentucky Center

When the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts opened on Nov.19, 1983, it was the premier facility for performing arts in the state and region. It has since survived a fire and pandemic, as well as a recent rebranding, and it continues to be a beacon for the arts community. We explore the past, present and future of the building and the people who are pulling the strings backstage.
