Broadway-style theater headed to Kentucky

August 01, 2009 |

One of Kentucky's largest performing arts venues should open in 2011—that's when construction is expected to wrap up on Eastern Kentucky University's Business & Technology Center for Performing Arts. The 93,000-sf Broadway-caliber theater will seat 2,000 audience members and have a 60×24-foot stage proscenium and a fly loft. A large lobby and a 250-seat black-box theater are also part of the package. The theater comprises the second phase of the university's $32 million Business & Technology Center project, designed by Sherman Carter Barnhart with D.W. Wilburn Inc. as GC. Phase I includes a three-classroom, 20,000-sf addition to an existing academic facility.
