The TPAC was alive with the sound of music!

I took my wife as a surprise to see The Sound Of Music! TPAC did not disappoint! We both left the building feeling inspired to see more plays!

Had a wonderful experience for my first ballet performance. The setting was intimate and the performance was excellent.

This show and venue was amazing. =) The don't think there is a bad seat in the house & view of the stage is amazing. Had the best time and can't wait to go back to visit. =)

We saw A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder at TPAC and were impressed with the quality of the staging, strong voices of both principals and chorus, and polished acting in this 2014 Tony-winning musical comedy! Spend some time in the afternoon before the show at the Tennessee Museum, which is co-located there (reviewed separately). Great acoustics and creative use... More

This place is crazy...if you have balance issues or vertigo...don't go. We had to climb like mountain goats nearly straight up like in a basketball arena. The bathrooms were all the way downstairs and in the back of the building...down more steep stairs. Seriously? We could hear fine...and see good enough but we were miles from the stage. This place...

For over 25 years my husband and I have attended local and Broadway plays at TPAC and have never been dissapointed. We've taken our grandchildren there for Christmas productions. It's a place that has a "feel good" atmosphere. The staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful. If you have an opportunity to attend a production while in Nashville, by all... More

My first time here and we watched a Chinese cultural dance/music show. I loved the show and I know this review is not for that. The TPAC needs some renovations. The staff and everything was very nice and friendly but the auditorium is kind of trashy. We sat first row by the Orchestra. There is a very ugly, not well... More

The staff is very pleasant. We did have a hard time locating the rest rooms as their were no signs. Prices are very reasonable. Great venue.

Go See This Show! Wow! Amazing! High energy, entertaining and the sets... Breathtaking!! The dancers are always so beautiful and talented!!! We recognized several from Cinderella in Sept. Our family attended The Nashville Nutcracker with my sister and her family; our mother and aunt. My husband had never been to a ballet or a show at TPAC for that matter.... More
