They don’t call Branson the "The Live Entertainment Capital of the World" for nothing. Located in the heart of the Ozarks, this lively town is a gathering place for all sorts of performers and their music, from country and blue-grass to gospel and rock ‘n’ roll - it's all here!

Branson boasts more than 52 music theaters, which add up to more than 58,500 seats combined (even more than New York’s Broadway)!  The variety of live entertainment is mind-boggling: country, pop, western, classical jazz or Broadway, you won’t run out of things to see and do. In addition to musical performances, there is also stand-up comedy, magic spectacles and variety shows – all world-class performances.

A small, yet fun and different, show is the Branson Divas.  The show features 3 of Branson's hardest working female entertainers performing all types of musical styles, mixed with some hilarious comedy.  The show will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling.  See them in the Little Opry Theater at the Branson Imax Entertainment Complex.  Other live shows in the LIttle Opry Theater include Rocky Mountain High (a tribute to John Denver), New's Country, Strait Country (a tribute to George Strait), and Crossties Bluegrass.
