PNC Broadway in Louisville
We're proud to announce the 2019-2020 Season headlined by the six-time Tony Award-winning Best Musical, DEAR EVAN HANSEN opening the series at The Kentucky Center. The season will also include new productions direct from Broadway, and Disney’s THE LION KING will be making a triumphant return to Whitney Hall.
The Brown-Forman 2019/20 Season was programmed with Kentucky audiences in mind. This season delivers an exploration into the rich history of opera while celebrating the future of this beloved art form. Join us for our 68th season featuring Bizet’s Carmen, Tom Cipullo’s Glory Denied, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, and Robin Hood, a youth opera by Ben Moore and Kelley Rourke.
