We went to see the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra. The show was excellent, the audience was enthusiastic and all the people working the event were helpful and pleasant! Altogether a wonderful experience, I highly recommend attending any event at the Zeiterion!

great place to see a show or concert, close to the downtown area. lots of places to go to after the show, like Knuckleheads bar and grill and black whale. There beer and alcohol could use some updating.

Saw Darlene Love here. Great sound, great box office, classic hall, and volunteer ushers. Everyone happy and friendly. Convenient parking. Might come up here just to see another show!

The theater interior is stunning. It's wonderful to have such a lovely venue close by. Tickets can be a bit pricey,but for the most part it's a good value.

We took our son to see his first play - Sound of Music - at this wonderful theater. There was some great talent on display that exceeded expectations. Parking was easy and there were lots of places nearby to eat before the show. Will definitely go back for future performances.

No need to drive to Boston and pay alot for parking or Providence for that matter when you have the "Z" right in your back yard. And for nearly half the cost. The performances are tops and big name people. There is always such a variety offered to suite most everyone. You can rock in the comfy seets closer to... More

You can't beat the "Z" for local theater, it's as good as going to the PPAC. NB Festival Theater is always excellent. Marchand and Charbonneau are one fantastic team.

My friends and I saw "Fifty Shades Of Grey" it was hilarious! Unfortunately if someone sat in front of you and you were not on the incline of seating in the theatre, it made it difficult to see. The theatre was packed so a lot of shifting from side to side in order to view this play.

This theater, or Performing Arts Center, is an awesome venue. I frequent this center often and have never been disappointed at all. The seats, although some are not the best in comfort, are positioned that there is no bad seat in the place. They have acts for every taste of the arts. Concerts, plays, musicals, comedians, you name it this... More
