“good shows nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Love it each time we go! We have seen many musical acts there and they generally start on time, and deliver a good concert...and the lobby is so nice too!

“Good Independent Movies, Great Live Performances!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you happen to be in town and can catch a show at the Music Hall, it's a great venue! If you can't catch a show, go grab a drink in the lobby bar! The newly (~4yrs) remodeled lobby is incredible - looks like something out of a David Lynch movie set! Absolutely beautiful.

“Great place to see a show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I sat in the balcony for a concert and had a wonderful experience. This is a very intimate venue, so there is no such thing as a bad seat. The acoustics are great, and everyone working there was very pleasant and helpful.

“Why not put the national theatre HD broadcasts on the big screen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Watching an HD broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera is always a treat, as long as you don't become impatient with the wrinklies moving very, very slowly around the theater and lobby. But why does the Music Hall relegate the National Theater broadcasts to the Loft? They deserve to be brought back to the larger theater.

One of Portsmouth's top offerings, what a gem. Love movie nights in the summer.
Be sure to check out the film festival in Sept.
