A space as unique and versatile as the imaginative artists who perform upon its stage, the MeX is a simple "black box" with a maximum seating capacity of 139. Named in honor of long-time theatre and film critic of the Courier-Journal Boyd Martin, the theater was dedicated in 1988. Since then, it has become a favorite venue for local arts and theater groups, providing a blank slate for original plays, innovative productions of the classics, music, dance and literary readings.
The Boyd Martin Experimental Theater is a true gem of The Kentucky Center. It is a non-union house and has an ample technical inventory.
