My daughter and I have had a subscription to the PPAC Broadway series for 2 years now. Most of the shows have been wonderful. We have thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the performances as well as the theater itself.

PPAC is just amazingly beautiful, and they offer great shows. It's definitely worth the price just to see the beautiful ornate decor inside!

The building is beautiful. The inside decor is breath taking. We saw the sequel of the Phantom of the Opera. Great acting and amazing voices. If you are within Providence area, attending a play would be a wonderful experience.

Try the Mezzanine or Balcony. Seats aren't as large as in the Orchestra, and there is less leg room, but this shouldn't matter to children. And, from the upper area, you get panoramic views of the stage.
