Performing Arts

Drama! Comedy! Dance! Opera! The Symphony! Broadway!

It’s all happening in Louisville’s theaters. On our stages, you’ll find Shakespeare rubbing elbows with Tennessee Williams, as well as the latest touring shows from Broadway. In addition to all the theatrical standards, Louisville is also home to cutting-edge staged readings and thrilling, large-scale outdoor performances.

You can really do it all in downtown Louisville. From spending the entire day in one of the city’s world-class museums, like the Speed Art Museum, to immersing yourself in downtown Louisville’s cultural attractions like The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, The KentuckyShow! at the Kentucky Science Center, The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, or The Muhammad Ali Center. For admirers of the body in motion, there’s nothing like the Louisville Ballet, the state ballet of Kentucky.

Home to more than a dozen venues and performance companies, Louisville’s stages (indoor and outdoor) fill the city with the life and energy of drama and musical comedy, ballet and modern dance, and even dinner theatre! Explore how Louisville does Theatre & Performing Arts.

As home to the Kentucky Shakespeare Festival, the oldest ongoing celebration of the Bard’s work in the country, it’s no surprise Louisville is a hotbed of the performing arts.

Explore the venues, shows, and festivals listed below to find a Louisville theater and performing arts experience worth remembering!
