“Great Theatre and Great Customer Service!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I have seen many performances at this venue. Great stage and accoustics. Recently, I missed the date of a show that I had 4 tickets to attend. I called the box office ,and they were so helpful and polite. They replaced the tickets, and we were able to see the show.

“fabulous show”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We went to PPAC to see the Sunday evening performance of Mary Poppins. The acting and singing were fabulous. The theater is just gorgeous. We sat in the balcony (4th row Loge) and were able to see the stage perfectly. Just make sure you are in your seats when the performance begins or you will have to wait for a break to be seated. Drinks, light snacks are served at intermission. Bathrooms are large and clean. Parking is included with some valet services at area restaurants if you tell them you are going to the theater after dinner. If not, there are plenty of independent parking lots that are very close to the theater.

“Superb venue”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The Providence Performing Arts Center is a glorious example of those majestic theatres of yesteryear. Built in 1928, its opulent gilded interior itself is worth the price of admission. The lobby is the first thing that lures your eyes to the ornate design, it may be rococo, not sure, but it is dazzling in its golden gild. Once you enter the theater you have your breath sucked out of you as you try and take in the magnificence of this historic theater. If you ever are in Providence go to PPAC no matter who is performing. One complaint, when I went to see Mary Poppins, a superb production I must say, but hundreds of seniors were made to stand in the lobby for more than a half hour as they waited for the theater doors to allow them to go to their seats. A very bad idea.
