The lights are back on at Brown Theatre following water damage – 89.3 WFPL News Louisville

The Brown Theater in downtown Louisville will then be back in operation Water damage forced the cancellation or postponement of several performances.

“We are ready to resume the performances,” said Christian Adelberg, vice president of marketing and communications for Kentucky Performing Arts, in an email to WFPL.

The venue, owned by the Kentucky Performing Arts Foundation, is re-inviting the public to its next calendar event, a Pink Martini concert on October 29th.

The staff noticed the damage in the outside lobby and basement of the theater in early October.

“The theater itself was not affected at all,” Adelberg said said WFPL shortly after the discovery, adding that the damage was due to a construction project in a neighboring building.

They worked with experts to assess the extent of the damage.

Adelberg said repairs are still ongoing, with “some minor restoration work (patching, painting, replacing some baseboards and chair rails, and carpet cleaning).”

“But this work will not affect the capacity of the venue or the flow of visitors,” he said.

At the time of publication, Adelberg said he still had no estimate of the total cost of the repairs.
