Matinee performance of Evita. Very good production (combination of Broadway performers & local professionals) -- first of this attempt for TPAC. The entire experience was very good. We have been attending from out of town for approx 10-12 years. Good things: online tickets, valet parking ($20), convenient location, several in-house bars, refreshments, usually good seats.

Went to Evita recently with friends. What a wonderful production!!! The Art Center has wonderful seating, even reasonable pricing for seats on the orchestra floor. Acoustics were great. Sets were very well done, great lighting and design. I have only been in the Andrew Jackson Hall, but was very impressed. Very open and comfortable. Looking forward to many productions with... More

I took my niece to see the Dancing Dolls back in June. We got to do the meet and greet as well as watch the show. TPAC is very clean and very nice! The seats are spacious and you have a lot of leg room. They have a bar on the inside of the Andrew Jackson Hall. We had a... More

Attended a concert here and have performed here. Great venue. Not a bad seat in the house! Nice facility within walking distance to many downtown restaurants. Wine served in lobby! Definitely will attend future events here.

We saw Dixie the Tupperware Lady. Nice facility with clean restrooms and affordable concessions. The theater we were in was small, which was perfect for this show.

I was there for a recital and this facility is nice, clean, well run. TPAC certainly doesn't let disappoint when it comes to putting on a great show. Make sure you get there a little early for parking although they do have valet. Seats are comfortable and easy to find.

Very nice, the live performance at TPAC. The play & actors were very talented. Great sound system and effects. I did see a Broadway play there which made it special considering I've seen many in NYC. The only thing I didn't like about it was the seating. (Not saying the seats were uncomfortable, they were). Just our seats were so... More

We came to see the Layla and the Majnun and Carmina Burana ballet by the Nashville Ballet and Nashville Symphony and Chorus. The show was in the Andrew Jackson Hall which is the biggest of the stages. We sat in one of the front rows so we could see the show from very close and the acoustics sounded great. It's... More

This was my first time seeing a live performance at TPAC. The play itself was good with its many talented performers. Sound was great. Performance handouts were quality especially if one was wanting to keep it as a souvenir. It included a thorough summary of the play and its performers. We were there early enough that parking was not a... More

TPAC is actual home to 4 different stages used to present plays and musical performances. The very popular Broadway series is performed in the Andrew Jackson Hall that seats around 2400 people. This is an excellent theater with great acoustics and with a good view from most seat. The Broadway road show productions are well received in Nashville and most... More
