Very spacious, pleasant theatre with wide comfortable seats

We went to watch a concert here for the first time and was surprised to find a very large theatre, with an excellent sound system. Very comfortable seating.

May we request for a bigger restroom as the queue for the restroom with 4 regular and 1 for disable/elderly is so long that the intermission or the allowance for the time before the show is too short. The surround system should also be checked as it is the first time to see so many yawns watching a live play.

I had a chance to watch Priscilla Queen of the Desert show in this theatre, and I was surprised at how big it was. It has a much larger seating capacity compared to Solaire. We were seated at the middle part. It was a little far away from the stage, but we still had a clear view of the performers.... More

We visited the place so many times with my family. We enjoy the show, magnificent production, great stage decoration, clear sound and oh my, the acts of the performers are really world class in style. Highly recommended for young and old alike

Seating design is well thought of so you're bound to have a good view if you're watching a theater play regardless of seating.

I had the chance to go to a couple of shows held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater and I came out quite impressed with the place. The seats are very comfortable, with ample leg room. They are done in such a way that you have a good view of the stage regardless of where you are seated. The acoustics... More

Watched Bituing Walang Ningning recently, and while I have mixed reviews of the show, the theater is spectacular! Seats are very comfortable, and lights and sounds are world-class. Only thing I didn't like was that they allowed latecomers to get in during the show 'cause the patrons walking in front of me kind of distracted me from the show. Looking... More

Have seen several musicals here since it opened, the last being Bituing Walang Ningning. The seats are comfortable enough to get you glued to what you're watching but not too much to make you doze off. Lights and sounds are world class. The acoustics are flawless.

We found this theater to be one of the best we've been in worldwide. It offers 1,500 big, red, plush seats that are extremely comfortable. Wide aisles between rows offer wonderful leg space. State-of-the-art sound and lighting add to the ambiance. Many shows take place here, from theatrical productions to musical performances. A Christmas Day high mass by the bishop... More

They say that Filipinos are great artists. In order to thrive and further improve, a great performance house is a must. The the Newport Performing Arts Theater is fitting tribute and home to Filipino artistry. There are some performing arts venues in Metro Manila like the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Meralco Theater, the Carlos Romulo Auditorium, the Philam... More
