“Great for live events”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

The theatre is small enough to feel intimate even when you are sitting in the rear of the balcony. Outstanding sound on this particular night (again, even from our less-then-ideal seats) and just a great vibe overall. The lobby bar, the costumed greeters and especially the bathrooms just add to the experience. I'd rather see a show here than in Boston any day.

“What a great theatre”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We saw The Buddy Holly Story. The theatre was so impressive. It was a theatre much like some of the theatres in NYC. Very comfortable...Sound quality was great. As you enter the lobby, there were many places to sit and enjoy a drink before you went upstairs to see the show.

“Santa Cecelia was the best”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I would go here again and again. Great venue. Small and brimming with excitement. Check out what is going on and take a risk to go. Walkable area right downtown. You can bring your drinks right into the theatre. And you get to sit right "with" the performers, the stage is that close. We saw the Grammy winning Santa Cecelia band. Loved it all.

“Cool...”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Music Hall is a great venue to see live music or a movie. It's an old school building that has been redone; the restrooms are a little out there, but fun. The Music Hall has a great website which showcases the upcoming events....all types of music and all kinds of movies. If you're in the area and looking for something to do...you could do a lot worse by not visiting the Music Hall.

I have been to the Music Hall several times for various performances. It is a great little theater and such a little gem for Portsmouth!
