Visited Nashville a couple weeks ago for the Blue Man Group show. Had an absolute wonderful time. We love this theater. There isn't a bad seat in the house. We were also allowed to take our beers to our seats which was a bonus! Thanks TPAC!

We went to the TPAC to see Blue Man Group. Definitely will go see Blue Man Group again in the future!! They are fantastic. I was also impressed by TPAC. It's a beautiful venue, and I don't think there are any bad seats! Easy to see and hear from anywhere. All the staff we encountered were courteous and helpful. One... More

We visited recently to attend the nutcracker ballet. We were pleasantly surprised to see how large and modern the theater itself is with great amenities before the show. The seating on the main level appears to be somewhat unusual in that there are no center rows so as we prefer an aisle seat we were very very far off to... More

Wonderful production and a lovely facility. Only complaint was how long it took to retrieve our car from valet parking after the show. I had someone on a cane and we were standing outside (in the cold) much longer than what I would have expected.

Enjoyed our first visit to the Nashville Performing Arts Center and Jackson Hall to see Nashville's Nutcracker. The orchestra was incredible, the ballet and costumes very good and loved the theatre itself. Nice venue! Plenty of snack and cocktail options before the performance and they let you take your drinks and food into the theatre as well. Get there early... More

Our first visit to TPAC was to see "The Christmas Story" in the small Jackson theater. It is almost "theater in the round" with the audience seated on three sides of the stage. The play was extremely well done, the cast never missed a cue, and the performance seemed flawless.

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
