This is a great place for concerts. Small enough to see wherever you sit. Parking is available and staff is great.

We went to see Casablanca at the NJPAC accompanied by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. It was the only attraction open due to the snow storms that had struck that week.

We are not particularly fans of classic films or classical music but it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and a real treat to see a great orchestra play in a famous venue. We were near the back of the hall but had a great view and the sound was excellent.

We also recommend the buffet dinner available before the show!

Saw Bowfire on Friday night and Ron White "A little unprofessional" on Saturday.

The venue is always great, convenient, safe, not a bad seat in the house and excellent acoustics.

Bowfire was a delight. A mix of musical genres all played on strings and mostly fiddle but also violin, depending on the piece. They played, sang, and step danced, through a two hour show with one intermission and were thoroughly entertaining.

Ron White was in his usual rare form, funny and foul as ever. Our ribs hurt at the end of the evening.

I enjoyed the show we saw there. The only complaint I have was some of the orchestra seats were blocked by the hand railing. Staff was friendly, something off for parking would have been nice too--like $5 off with validation.

We went to the Pac to see Anthony Hamilton .We had great seats , the bathrooms were clean the staff was friendly I don't have any complaints . Parking directly across the street it was only $15 compared to other venues that's very fair.
