Broadway-style theater headed to Kentucky

August 11, 2010

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.
