“Great performances!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Center for the Arts is located on the George Mason University campus. Local groups, groups from the university, national and international groups perform there. Many different types of events to choose from; prices are reasonable...some are free. Most parking requires walking about .25 mile, but there is an adjacent parking garage for a fee.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautiful facility. I've attended many times. They offer quality concerts in a lovely setting. Sound is excellent. You can see the stage well from anywhere in the house.

“Outstanding Performing Arts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Forget about going into DC to see great performances. If you are in the area, this is the place to go for a great variety of choices of music, dance, drama, and variety. The acoustics are great even from the "cheap" seats. Easy access outside parking is free, inside parking for a fee. Nearly all performances have an upstairs pre-performance discussion 45 minutes before the start.

“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is much simpler to get to than other venues such as the Kennedy Center. There is free parking in Lot K and a short walk to the theatre. It's a medium sized theatre. We sat in the balcony area, row FF on the side, and we could see very well with no obstructions. We saw a modern dance program here. The theatre was clean and comfortable. It was easy getting out of the parking lot afterwards. The ticket price range was $23, 38, 46. We paid $38 which seemed a little expensive for our program. There was a free discussion by the dance company owner/choreographer 45 minutes before the show which was interesting.

“Navy band concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great Navy band concert in an impressive hall for a small campus like George Mason U. Park in lot J or K to avoid expensive parking garage
