We have been to NJ PAC many times. It never ceases to amaze as a place to see the performing arts. It is very large, beautiful and has very old acoustics. The NJ Symphony sound great in this hall.

This is a true performing arts center, with multiple venues of differing sizes and a wide variety of offerings. The main theater is truly stunning, well-designed, comfortable - all that a large theater should be. (Lots of things in Newark are named "Prudential" - thanks!)...More

Very nice venue, convenient location, close parking, and cordial staff; sadly the seats have a metal bar that hurt my lil-bottom!

Beautiful theater where you can attend to great performances. The acoustics are great and very comfortable seating. The parking lot is quite big, though I live just a couple of miles away, and there's even a good restaurant.

I had the pleasure of watching the Gipsy Kings perform at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. It's a very elegant art center. A really cool place to enjoy a concert or comedy performance etc.

It's a theatre. They have seats. They have overpriced beer. They have restrooms. There's a place to hang coats.

Yes, take PATH to Newark. Then you have two or three long blocks to walk.
