The Bartlesville Community Center is anything but a community center as most people would know one. Because of the misnaming I believe that people from outside of Bartlesville think they would be sitting on folding chairs to view a performance. But in fact, this theater is a world class performing arts center with phenomenal acoustics and great seats close to the stage. There is no center aisle so the seats wrap the stage well. There is no elevator to reach upper seats, but they will accommodate wheelchair seats closer to the stage.
The prices in Bartlesville for their quality symphony, Broadway series and concerts are all 30-40% cheaper than Tulsa. If I learned of something I wanted to see there I would not hesitate to make the trip. It is only a 40 minute drive from downtown Tulsa to Downtown Bartlesville with easy access. Parking is free too.
The Center was designed by William Wesley Peters, chief architect of Taliesin Associated Architects, The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Smooth curves and rounded lines make a statement that this is a unique building. It is a perfect pairing to the Price Tower across the Street which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
