Moscow Ballet's Nutcracker was amazing!

This performance exceeded my expectations a ND was beautifully danced with some changes to the choreography (no dew drop fairy) and costumes. Nevertheless, it was a joy.

In the heart of downtown Albany you will find this Art-Deco style theater, dated from 193. It is still functioning as a concert venue with 2,844 seats. It is a beautiful architectural gem in Albany.

First off, the staff were incredible. The bartenders were quick and nice and the ushers were on top of the people trying to sneak into the better sections if only for a quick photo. I would love to see a show here again

Attended a Gov't Mule concert at the Palace. It's beautifully refurbished. Seats are a good size, sound quality great and staff don't hassle you. Definitely a great place to see concerts.

Saw the Alice Cooper show on 28 Sept 2016. The Palace acoustics are very good. While every seat in the house is good, I especially like lower floor and/or lower balcony. Very easy to get to from the interstate.

The Place theatre is a long way from where I live in Virginia. So the band playing was my initial reason for the trip up to it. Moe on new years is not to be missed. It was a hike but, it is a very easy place to find. So make it we did with ease. Entering the Palace you... More

I think the first time I walked into the Palace Theatre in downtown Albany it was maybe 1974 to see a rock concert. Now in 2016 I am still going there to see rock concerts, often with my son. It still is a truly amazing place and always will be. The acoustics in the Palace are simply the best! The... More
