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.

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

Formerly known as the Tennessee Rep, this smaller theater group help in the Johnson Theater of TPAC is well worth it. I have a Season Pass and just saw Sweeny Todd. Excellent. The big productions in the main Jackson Theater of TPAC are great, but the more intimate setting of the Johnson Theater and the excellent cast and production staff... More
