theater performances and concerts. It provides a little bit of something for everyone, making it a go-to spot for those out-of-town folks looking to experience Hartford’s rich culture. It also has many education classes and seminars along with activities available for the whole community. The Bushnell is stunning and always draws you in with its exquisite design and welcoming feel. It’s great too, because it’s located right in historic Downtown Hartford so it’s close to all the best restaurants and pubs within the area, making for easy access for post show dinner and pre show drinks.

A rock of Gibraltar of Hartford, pinning down one.corner of an otherwise bleak five way intersection. But inside-wow! Some of the best surviving Art Deco around. Beautiful acoustics!

The Bushnell Theater brings a lot of culture into Hartford. I've been here to see Wicked, which was a wonderful performance. I highly recommend taking some time to attend an event here, if you're in the Hartford area.

I just saw a performance of Cirque Dreams Holidaze here, which was a fantastic and highly entertaining show. But the building is a beautiful piece of art all on its own. Ornate and gilded in gold, the main room has three levels with opera seats and wonderful views from almost anywhere in the audience. The acoustics are quite good as well - I had no problem hearing the musical performance. If you get a chance, check out the Chihuly glass sculpture in the box office hall - it's a gorgeous, orange chandelier that makes the room shine.

Great building. The outside looks modern but the inside is as classic as it comes. Highly recommend the annual Warren Miller ski film showing.
