The Bushnell: A Hartford Classic

One of the most gorgeous spaces in Hartford to enjoy live performance is The Bushnell. Built in 1930 by Dotha Bushnell Hillyer as a “living memorial” to her father, noted Connecticut minister and public speaker the Reverend Doctor Horace Bushnell, it’s spent almost a century as the home for some of the city’s most revered performing arts institutions. Most notable is the Hartford Symphony, which holds multiple concerts every year in the theater’s Mortensen Hall.

The visual appeal of this building is something truly special – in addition to the stunning Art Deco interior, the 1929 hand-painted ceiling mural by Barry Faulkner is the largest of its kind in the United States. Regulars rave about the exceptional amenities available to showgoers, from comfortable seats with excellent sightlines to the crystal-clear acoustics, no matter where you’re sitting!
