“Beautiful theater..”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I come from NY and went to Broadway often. PPAC is a beautiful theater, comfy seats and a bargain compared to NY... I have gone to so many shows here. The productions are great, I love it here.

“Season Ticket holder”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Love the Broadway shows, but wish they would keep their yearly shows to 6 and give us the option if we want the 7th.

“Love seeing shows here!!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This has been my favorite venue to see shows for a long time. It is beautiful and not to big. Parking is fairly convenient.
I recently visited with a disabled client of mine and the staff was very good about showing us to our seats and taking the time to stow her walker safely and returned it to us when the show was over.

“Great shows, historic venue”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is an architectural gem. The stage takes you back 100 years with high gilt ceilings,murals, dramatic cornices, finials and such. The shows are first rate Broadway traveling acts. Downside are the old world seating and cramped leg space.

“Great place!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Our family tries to get to Providence at least twice a year to see shows at PPAC. They have a great variety of shows for the entire family. The theater is absolutely beautiful both in the lobby and in the theater itself. The attendants are always very helpful getting around and finding your seats. The location is great if you want to walk to any of the wonderful local restaurants after the show! We are very much looking forward to our next visit!
