This is one of the best places to see a concert/ performance. The atmosphere is good & the architecture is one of the best I've seen. I always try to take in a performance at this venue because of the excellent atmosphere!

The theater is lovely, wonderfully redone. Beautiful just to sit in. Get there on time, ask where to sit, the ushers are wonderful and the seating can be confusing. We enjoyed tge balcony seating, loge was perfect. We could see the performance better than orchestra. Definitely returning to other performances here.

We see shows here often. Its a great space, beautiful in the old tradition and decent acoustics for classical. The only downside was that it was too cold.

My wife and I attended a Jennifer Nettles show at the Palace Theater last month. It was my second time attending a show here and it met our expectations. The lobby area isn't overly large, but is adequate. The food booths are predictably expensive, the bathrooms are average. The line for the women's room was a little bit ridiculous, but... More

The Palace Theater is a true gem in the city of Albany. It's been through extensive renovations in recent years and it's got all the glam of when it was first constructed and yet the seats are very comfortable and there almost no obstructed views anywhere in the house. You really feel Like you are stepping back in time as... More
