I live in Tulsa. I'm originally from NY. I've seen many shows in Tulsa and NYC and the Tulsa PAC is a great place to see shows previously, and often currently, showing in NYC. We've seen some amazing performances at this center and the cost is much less than NYC. I highly recommend it.

1964 the Tribute, the Beatles cover band, was phenomenal. Essentially non-stop early Beatles music and banter. They may not be the original Fab Four but they brought to the Tulsa Performing Arts Center stage just what the 60's sounded like during the British Invasion. So you're wondering about the intermission?? Two words... BEACH BALLS!! Truly! When the lights came up... More

I've enjoyed many performances in the Tulsa PAC, and have never had a bad seat. The majority took place in Chapman Hall, the main venue, but the Doegenes Theater (smaller room with only a few hundred seats) and Williams Theater (black box room) are also great for a variety of performances from Theatre Tulsa and other smaller local companies. Parking... More

We had seats in the top balcony. We could see the show great, and sound system was adequate. Leaving the auditorium was difficult becasue of a small number elevators.

This a beautiful auditorium with a friendly, helpful staff. I've seen the opera and the ballet there. They also have beautiful art displayed throughout.

This is a small venue that is perfect for seeing Broadway plays and other performances. We have never had a bad seat. It's easy to get around in & the staff is friendly.

Love the Tulsa PAC! Not a bad seat in the house and love all the shows that come to Tulsa! Take my little girl to the Nutcracker every year and it's just amazing!

The season ticket here is always a good buy for those who like good plays, music and song. The sound and lighting is first rate and the seats comfortable and air conditioning and heating good. A excellent venue for watching plays, ballet or musical acts and they book some very good ones thru-out their season. The downstairs small theaters have... More

We started off receiving tickets from our niece, and nephew to see a christmas story. I would of never set foot in the door if they hadn't bought the tickets as a gift. I had the impression that you had to get decked out to see a show. That is the farthest from the truth. You see people in jeans,... More

Thank you for writing. We have done a lot of work over the years to promote the idea that this is not a stuffy place. As you mentioned, people dress to feel comfortable, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Sign up on our website, tulsapac.com, to receive a monthly email that tells you about all upcoming shows, and... More

If anyone wonders how a prairie city could have performing arts worthy of attending, Tulsa has a world class ballet company, symphony, opera and a line-up of Broadway shows at any given time. A beautiful way to spend the afternoon or evening with family.
