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

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.
