Great venue for wide variety of performing arts. We raised our daughter in A2, and throughout her childhood she had the opportunity to see Broadway stars in concert, the Royal Shakespeare Company in residence, Baryshnikov in solo dance tour, various bands, you name it. Along with Rackham Auditorium, U of M has the best performance venues in the Midwest, and... More

The stadium-style high rise seating with no visual obstructions affords a good view of the stage for the entire audience. Great for dance and multi-media shows. Hill Auditorium a block away is better for acoustic music like the symphony or an capella group.

I'm certainly not complaining about any of the performances brought to the Power Center - they're top-notch. But as someone who can't afford the posh middle seats, or buys... More
