This Theater is an Historic mark in Manchester, NH. The renovations continue discretely, two couples went to see A Mid Life Crisis this past weekend. We had a lovely time, from the get-go the laughter started and continued throughout the performance. If you have a chance to visit while this play is on I highly recommend. This is not my... More

Went to watch the Lion king and had a fab time. The seats leave no room for your legs so the taller folk did struggle and had cramp come the interval. Don't attempt to go to the loo mid performance! Bar is expensive but not unexpected.

This theatre is a very intimate setting in an older building in the Manchester area. It was a great setting for the Nutcracker. The seats in this location are very close together (as they are in most theatres) and if you are on the larger size, you may have a struggle getting in and out of the your as they... More

On a Winter's Night was such a professional production. A great Christmas spirit throughout this historic venue. I recommend sitting downstairs, where the new seats are. The parking can be annoying if you arrive late, go early and have a dinner downtown and enjoy the local flavor. I also enjoyed Chorus Line musical earlier this year. Go online www.palacetheatre.org. and... More

Small intimate venue seating 7 or 8 hundred people of which none will suffer a poor seat. Caters to culture oriented programming such as ballet, theater, various stage shows and small concerts. Located in a trendy, renaissance-like section of downtown Manchester with lots of great restaurants, it's a great date-night destination. It's not so big that crowds are out of... More

Wow what another fantastic show! We have been coming to the Palace for the past 3-4 years and I have enjoyed every show! Although the Bruce Springsteen Tribute Band was very good I felt the music speakers were way to loud that it drowned the voices of the band out. I loved loved 80's Mix Tape was outstanding and Xanadu... More

Was really looking forward to seeing "The Jersey Boys". This will be the 3rd time we have seen this show, having previously watched it in London and Vegas. Pre theatre we had a lovely meal in the Kitchenette, across the road were we had 1 bottle of wine between the 4 of us. However, when we arrived at the theatre,... More

Had a wonderful time attending 2 children performances this summer (wish I could have seen all of them). I saw The Little Mermaid and Beauty & the Beast ---loved them both. Both performances were so good that the time flew by-approximately 45 minutes perfect for all ages---the actors were amazing- wish we could have this all year round especially winter... More
