First time at the center and it's a wonderful venue. Acoustics are clear and seating is comfortable with plenty of room. The band sounded great. We had plenty of choices to dine nearby and parking was close and free. What a evening with family and friends.

The Mesa Arts Center is a wonderful place to see a play, musical, entertainers of all sorts. The seating is good and you can't really get a bad seat. It is reasonable buying tickets also.

It is great to have some of the best of Broadway shows available so close to home. The Mesa Art Center has beautiful grounds and art sculptures . They also offer great classes. This has been a great asset for Mesa. I only wish there were more restaurants in the area.

We have been to the Mesa Arts Center twice in the last four months, We saw a play from a small company in one of the small theaters. Most recently we saw Lyle Lovett in concert in the main stage. One detractor for the old folks is that there is not a lot of seating in the waiting areas. I... More

When I lived in Mesa, I came here several times. The artwork changes every three months. There is always a variety of types of art, and the exhibits are free. They also have a wonderful gift shop that features local artists. This is also the place that locals take their pictures (engagements, senior, and family photos).

We saw Hugh Laurie here. Wonderful acoustics. I would not hesitate to see another concert here. The parking was easy and the seats comfortable.

Girls had come down for a dance competition here and the facility was excellent. The main stage was enormous. The concessions were a bit pricey, but aren't they all?
