We saw Of Mice and Men on Saturday night and enjoyed the small John Williams theater venue. Nearby outdoor parking was free for us the night of the play and there is a nice area of seating and tables outside the theater where they serve drinks and snacks during intermission. We were permitted to bring drinks and snacks into the theater during the show as well.

When people talk about the Tulsa PAC one thing that comes up is how much theater is packed into such a small location. It is quite amazing when you look at the exterior of the building it is quite amazing how large the actual facilities are inside the building.

The theater is quite pleasant for attending shows, the acoustics are good, the seats are comfortable, and the row spacing is not cramped.

However, in some ways it is somewhat under-designed. You can be guaranteed a fairly long wait for restrooms at intermission so don't drink much before a show if you can. The lobby can become very crowded before the show as the space for people to wait for the doors to open is extremely limited. Also there is no center aisle to the theater. Only two side aisles so plan on a lot of traffic if you're towards the ends of a row.

If you’re looking for culture the PAC typically has great shows. We attend a few each year. I have seen wonderful shows there such as CATS, etc.

Nice facility, dress is from casual to suit and or tux. Definitely somewhere we visit, as locals, several times a year. We are actually headed to see Jekyll and Hyde in less than two weeks.

We've seen shows on the big stage and shows on the smaller stages, they are always great! As a child I would dance during my dance studios recitals and it was the most memorable experices of my life!

The PAC center is an amazing contribution to Tulsa's varied entertainment scene. I have seen great concerts there, from national touring bands to the local combine high school symphony orchestra, and great touring shows from Broadway like "Memphis" and "Jersey Boys." There is a smaller hall downstairs where I once saw the National Fiddlers Hall of Fame induction ceremony, with "Hot Club of Cowtown" performing, as well as small theaters for local actings groups and their productions. There is always something going on at the PAC center, get aquatinted with it and have some good times.
