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.

This theater is stunningly beautiful. They have a large number of a variety of excellent shows. You can get tickets at a lower cost than Boston. The parking is a fraction of Boston prices too.

Beautifully restored theatre from 1928. Great architecture and interior design. It is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We have been here a few times now and does not seem to be a bad seat in the house. A true world class...More
