  • My husband got tickets for the symphony here, Romeo and Juliet. Absolutely amazing and customer service was great  more »
  • Very nice theatre to see a show at very good price. Happen to be walking by while visiting Providence and saw that a Bronx Tale was playing. Got lucky and scored half price tickets fir $44.  more »
  • Hamilton! What more is there to say? Seats were comfortable. Closed captioning was in front of us, adding to the experience. We could read any lines we missed in this fast - paced show. Stage was perfect for the performance. Even with a full house and millions of people wanting to purchase memorabilia, everything worked smoothly.
  • What a beautiful theater. We came to see Hamilton and it was wonderful. Everyone we encountered was so kind and helpful. My only reason for giving 4stars is because this is the first theater I have encountered that didn't have boosters for kiddos.
