We just love PPAC. It’s a beautiful theatre, decorated with the original charm and architecture. Acoustics are great as are the seats and cleanliness.

Went to see Fun Home last night and really enjoyed the show. Very different from normal razza matazz Broadway show. Real down to earth show based on a true story of what is probably a typical American family.

PPAC is a great venue. It has the beauty of the Wang center in Boston without the heavy price tag for the entertainment.

A must see in Providence. A throw back to the era of glamour and a celebration of the performing arts.

Beautiful, classes and comfortable. The somewhat retro theater offers all modern comforts. Not a bad seat in the house

Very nice theatre, but seats are too close, not enough leg room, certainly not enough toilets in ladies room. Long waiting lines for ladies room. For the amount of people there, facilities are ridiculous.

Hi there, I volunteered at the PPAC for years and found parking on Clifford near Richmond, 3 blocks behind the PPAC, to be the easiest. It was free street parking at night and points you right to the freeway for easy... More
