We to see Lindsey Buckingham at TPACs. We sat on the balcony and had a great view. Didn't look like there was a bad seat in the house. A concert in this setting is such much more intimate. Parking was a little confusing, but finally found a space close by. I would definitely go to another concert or event here.... More

I have season tickets to the Broadway musicals at TPAC and have attended for many years. The shows that are brought to here are great and I so appreciate having them here since I rarely am able to travel to New York or other large cities.

We have had season tickets to Broadway on TPAC. This season started with Anything goes. We loved IT! Our 2 daughters have truly fallen in love with broadway. They were thrilled with this performance. It was very funny. Very little bad language. Some mild sexual inuendo but our 10 and 12 year olds were fine. TPAC put on a very... More

Not a bad seat in the house. They do pay what you can seating which I think is great when you are traveling on a buget. Plus they offer valet parking which is nice if you don't know the downtown area; I think it was $18.

We traveled to Nashville to see Leonard Cohen . . we wanted a smaller venue, in order to be up close and personal. This is a great theater . . . located with hotels and restaurants close by . . we had great seats and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We came to see my nephew perform in a new musical directed by Jerry Lewis. The theater was wonderful with excellent sound and great sight lines. The audience was very enthusiastic which enhanced th4e performance.

We have been to TPAC many times for date nights, schools field trips, and nights out with visiting family & friends. From ballets, concerts, musicals, and plays, to lectures by world-renowned speakers, every performance has been top notch.

The staff go above and beyond to make getting into your show smooth and effortless. Getting parked is the hardest part and its pretty simple! Every show I have seen has been a wonder and I look forward to the next show before I get home from the last!

Situated in downtown.. near 2 dozen parking garages.. TPAC brings Broadway to Nashville.. I have seen 3 plays here, since moving here and becoming a permanent resident... I love getting dressed up in fancy schmancy clothing, throw a fur cape over my shoulders and head down here and feel regal... There aren't many places that dressing up looks good, but... More
