In my opinion the finish stage in NJ . I 've been to several theaters in this state and not one compares with NJPAC. Great seating, clear sound, perfect lighting, and a wonderful restaurant. Parking is never a problem And great security. And if you don't want to eat there, the Ironbound part of Newark as a numerous amount of... More

First time I was ever here . . . .I found this venue to be clean and very friendly to guest. ALL of the employees were welcoming and POLITE. These are not qualities you see from other venues. When I say everyone I mean everyone, from the parking lot attendant to the ushers and EVERY single person in between. The... More

I used to go there some time ago. I love this Art Center. They offer very good artist all the time. I remember a Flamenco performance , it was very good. Performers they present are really good and prin=ces are affordable.

This is a good concert venue with first rate performances, both classical and popular. The Center is modern and attractive, and close to other cultural sites in the safe center of Newark. It's easily reached by PATH.

Awesome place to see a show. Really nice theater with excellent seating - not a bad seat in the house. Very classy looking place. The only problem was that there should have been more bartenders on duty. Can't wait to go back!

During the past few months, I have been lucky enough to be at NJPAC for several different shows. There is not a bad seat in the orchestra section. We prefer to drive in and there is a parking deck directly across the street from the PAC. The building is beautiful and often we find they host some entertainment in the... More

This is the shinning star of the garden state. If you appreciate architecture and form the physical building is inspirational. The building is a art form unto itself. The interior is our carnegie hall. I have been a member for 14 years and where else can you see what the team at NJPAC brings for us?? Shen yuan, Jethro Tull,... More

NJPAC is a short walk from Newark Penn Station so bus or train transportation is available. Things can get a little hectic when people are trying to get out of town and there is an event at the Prudential Center. There is light rail service to NJPAC or you can choose to drive-in to the venue. There is ample parking... More
