“Revitalized area of Schenectady, fabulous space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Very beautiful renovated old building with lots of character, big enough for major shows but still good sound and sight lines. Area has been revitalized, parking is convenient and affordable. Tickets for big Broadway shows are much cheaper than going to NYC.

“The best of Broadway close to home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

"Oh What a Night", closing day of Jersey Boys at Proctors. Great show, great music, great time. Proctors always delivers with a nice variety of Broadway shows, comedy acts, improv or some other theatrical production. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful venue in our backyard, no need to travel to NYC. Plus if you are lucky, like this afternoon, you can enjoy and purchase local artisan's wares such as wine, cheese, granola and textiles before the show. I can't wait for the 2012-2013 season. This is a class act.
