One of America's most beloved comedians of all time, Bill Cosby has dazzled generations of fans with his comedy routines, also captured on his iconic albums and best-selling books such as Fatherhood and the groundbreaking The Cosby Show. His comedy transcends age, gender, and cultural barriers.

Cosby broke television's racial barrier with I Spy, becoming the first African American to costar on a television series, winning three consecutive Emmys for "Outstanding Lead Actor" in the dramatic series.

Perhaps Cosby's greatest contribution to American entertainment and culture is The Cosby Show, about a close knit, upper middle class black family, which was the top rated series for years in the '80s.

Carpenter Theatre @ CenterStage

600 E. GRACE ST.
Fully renovated and restored, the historic Carpenter Theatre is the cornerstone of the Richmond CenterStage performing arts complex. It features state-of-the-art lighting and world-class acoustics while still preserving its Old World feel. Its large stage, great acoustics and 20 dressing rooms make it a performer’s dream venue. Carpenter Theatre’s main lobby includes two refreshment bars, concierge station and a gift shop, with two additional refreshment bars upstairs. Four large mosaic tile murals of parrots serve as the backdrop to the four refreshment bars and are a tribute to the handmade parrot that has been perched in the lobby since the theater first opened in 1928. Upon entering the refurbished Carpenter Theatre - with nearly 1,800 seats - audiences enjoy newly installed fiber optic stars twinkling overhead in the repainted midnight sky ceiling, one of the many preserved and enhanced elements of John Eberson's original theater design.
