TPAC, for a long time, was sad. I avoided it for many years because of its poor acoustics and less-than-desirable seating. After a recent show, I can say that the acoustics and sound are much-improved. However, the seating and viewing angles still have much to be desired. We were in good shape for the production we saw, with a fairly... More

A nice venue. Several different auditoriums. I have been to two of them. Both were nice with comfortable seating. Acoustics are good. An enjoyable experience everytime I've been there. Parking in the area is expensive.

We saw a play at TPAC and the facility was marvelous. The staff were very attentive and helpful. I was a little worried at intermission when I saw all the women heading for the same bathroom. I thought I would never make it back on time to see the rest of the play. To my surprise, the bathroom was HUGE!... More

LOVED THE SHOW! But the auditorium was rather hot- almost uncomfortable! Check your coats in. Drinks are VERY HIGH priced! You will have fun here! Great SHOWS!

We attended a musical at the TPAC. The seating, stage, and sound are all excellent! Wonderful acoustics. Nice lobby and decently priced refreshment. We enjoyed a Broadway show for a lot less than what it cost us in New York! Bravo, Nashville.

Great auditorium, comfort seating, good acoustics and views from upper balcony were very good. Hope to see another show there when in Nashville next time.

We went to the Polk Theater to see Richard Marx. The concert itself was great. The venue is 'accessible' however finding the steep ramp to get you up to the hall was hard to find and no one seemed to know where to find it. It is located behind the valet stand. The only other access is via multiple sets... More

It's wonderful to have a performing arts center that draws a good crowd. It's a very nice venue. Chairs are narrow to get every person they can into the facility. They need a little polish on how to open the doors to the hall, without making it sound like a high-school production. But otherwise it's a great place to see... More
