I had balcony seating to enjoy a concert watching my wife perform. The IAC is an excellent venue to enjoy the symphony.

We much enjoyed the Irving Arts Center where we saw a musical put on by the Lyric Stage. The Crawford theater is a good size. The musical was enjoyable. We will return in the future for other productions here. We come to Dallas for the Dallas Opera, but the Irving Arts Center offers a pleasant way to spend another evening.

The show that we saw there was a Elvis show with Kraig Parker & Ben Portsmouth. It was a Great show. The Arts Center was out of sight place.

This very diverse facility offers a number of interesting and enjoyable arts experiences. There is a smaller community playhouse, and a large concert hall that hosts a range of musical productions. In addition, the gallery has displays and exhibits from both local and visiting artists year round. Well worth a visit.

This is a great venue for a wide variety of musical performances and plays. Not huge, so performances seem pretty intimate. Also, there are sculpture and water exhibits outside and a gallery inside.

Excellent place to catch a musical performance. Nice seating with good sight lines. The theater is able to draw excellent talent, and from time to time puts on some rarely-seen shows.

I stopped by to see an exhibit in the gallery then found there are more than one galleries. Also there is a beautiful sculpture garden completed with waterfalls. The building is welcoming and beautiful. I also saw a ballet performance on stage in the very comfortable theatre. Performances are for a small charge but gallery exhibits are free.
