“A lovely diversion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This past weekend, my spouse and I went to the Broadway production on tour of "WESTSIDE STORY". It was wonderful. The theater (Waterbury's Palace Theater) was first rate and truly enhanced the experience. Access was easy from the parking garage and the cost to park was only $5 for the event. What a treasure and easily accessible from Route 84. It was truly an enjoyable experience. I hope to take advantage of other programs at this beautiful theater.

“Beautiful Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This place is stunning & the productions are first-rate! Parking was fairly convenient & officers outside theater make it safe. The only downside is that there is one ladies room... makes for very long line despite several stalls in the bathroom.

“Great Restoration easy access”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Waterbury's Palace Theater offers a pretty wide selection of Musicals and individual performers.
The one-time movie theater has been restored to the beauty and quality of a top Broadway venue.
Add to that the easy access from the Interstate, and reasonable parking across from the building, along with comfortable seats and you have an all around winner.

I've enjoyed a number of shows and so good invividual performers here and have been seated from the balcony to the front row-- always satisfied, though of course more so when I get lucky and can get close up seats.

“Great theater acoustics ok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Surprised at how nice this venue was. Large ornate a throw back to yesterday year.
Acoustics in upper tier not so good but seemed much better at lower mezzanine and in orchestra.
A gem in Waterbury.
