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

Called TPAC by locals, this place has opportunities to see plays, ballet, comedians, so many performances for all ages. It is one of the best places in Nashville.

TPAC always provides excellent entertainment. I am a new season ticket holder simply because I have enjoyed every show I have been to, and thought I would take advantage of the season ticket prices. Their recent performance of Phantom of the Opera was outstanding and the staging was worth seeing. The performance of Chicago in the Johnson theater was awesome,... More

This was our first time to attend a performance at TPAC. We found it to be well organized for ticket holders to get to their seats. Restrooms were not easily located for first-time visitors. We had seats on the aisle in Row R. Our view of the stage was fine and the sound was good. But a door to an... More
