I drove up from FL specifically to see the Bill Maher show. My seat was 4th row, directly in front of his mic. It doesn't get better than that. I don't know if the no camera, no camera phone, rule is standard for the venue or just this show. The ONLY annoying thing, other than not being able to take... More

It is near Nashville city center and walking distance to the Honkey Tonks if you would like. Attire is semi causal , recommend long pants and shirts with collar for men. Valet parking if you wish, there is a fee. Parking is available in the area with parking fee.

We attended TPAC for the performance of WICKED. This was not my first time, nor will it be my last. I do wish the tickets for performances were a little cheaper to allow for more frequent visits, but all in all a good time.

TPAC hosts many varieties of events and shows throughout the year. The last one I attended was the production of "War Horse". I have been a season ticket holder and the staff is always on their toes and very helpful. They had some changeover in the valet service companies, but seem to have worked out all the kinks now. I...

Our family attended a showing of Wicked here. After attending other venues, I will admit I was a little disappointed in the lack of grandness of this center but it was still nice. Seating and acoustics were great.

On Mother's Day, we attended the Musical, Million Dollar Quartet at the Tn Performing Arts Center. The Musical was fantastic!!! Ushers ranged from limited knowledge to very helpful in directing us to our seats and the restroom facilities. We were in Andrew Jackson Hall and it is very inconvenient to seats in the middle as there are no center aisles.... More

I saw @midnight with Chris Hardwick in the James k. Polk Theater. It was a great venue. I would definitely see other shows here. The Tennessee State Museum, is located in the same building, just downstairs.

Happened to be in Nashville when the wild west comedy tour was happening. Had a great line-up with multiple theaters in one location. Only saw shows in Andrew Jackson Hall which is quite large and a little run down, but nothing you can't get over. The only warning is that there are no middle isles, so if you have seats... More

I saw Rodney Carrington here just the other day. I would have to say that this is now one of my favorite theaters/arts centers to see a show. Not a bad seat in the house. Would highly recommend this to anyone if you have the option on where to see a show in Nashville.
