Went there to see the I Love Lucy Live show. The theater was very nice. We had seats way up top but we were able to see the whole stage without anything blocking us. Seats were comfortable. Close to several eating places and coffee shops. Easy to get to from highway.

Just as exquisite as any of the Boston theaters. Comfortable, close to hotels, not overpriced-affordable for family venues.

Loved the old time theatre and convenience to down town restaurants. Great choice of plays, music performers, and theoretical productions.

PPAC (Providence Performing Arts Center) is one of the most accoustically ideal places to see a performance of any kind. Thenewly renovated Arts Center is not only beautiful, but every seat in the house is one where you can see every aspect of theperformance.

Been To So Many First Class Act Performances To Even Mention....I Enjoy Being Able To Walk Around Before & After The Performances With Ease Especially In The Summer With The Greetings Of The Providence Police Horses That Glide Through The Area With Their Mounted Friends...

The performance we saw was amazing. The Symphony took the folk music of The Indigo Girls and brought it to an completely new and rich level. The theater itself is unbelievable restored and a sight in and of itself.

I like the concert. The ticketing was easy and the seating was convenient. I had handicap seats and I had a perfect view. It was wonderful.

If you are in Providence, don't miss PPAC. This beautifully restored theater has many different types of shows at a 70% off NYC prices. Just walking into the theater is a step back in time.
