My husband and I travelled from Massachusetts to see Miss Saigon with my Aunt who is a resident of White Plains. The show was incredible. It was a beautiful story and the performers were excellent. I had also seen Jersey boys at the beginning of the year and enjoyed that very much. I thought the staff was especially helpful and it was a wonderful experience. We will be back!

The White Plains Performance Arts Center is a premier and spectacular performing arts theater in White Plains, New York.

It has featured numerous classic and modern theatrical shows, Broadway musicals, concerts and other performing attractions.

In December of 2021, I brought and treated my wife and myself to see “A Christmas Carol” at the White Plains Performance Arts Center.

“A Christmas Carol” is superb Christmas theme musical and my wife and I enjoyed the show from start to finish.The cast performed brilliantly in every aspect.Their acting, singing and dancing was flawlessly executed and highly entertaining!!!

What my wife and I love most about the White Plains Performance Arts Center are its seating, because it is very comforting, provides great spacing between you and fellow patrons and positions you with great views of the stage no matter where you sit.

Both my wife and I definitely give two thumbs up to the White Plains Performance Arts Center and highly recommend that you visit and watch a performance at this great theater!!!

Outstanding live-theatre productions that dependably reaches the quality and standards of Broadway productions. Theatre-buffs, or fans of live musical performance, should take advantage of this regional venue.Their Mainstage and special events will certainly exceed your expectations. Tickets are remarkably affordable. Subscription holders get even greater value.

Musical director and producer, Stephen Ferri, has been delivering a steady string of spectacular Mainstage productions. The shows feature equity NYC performers, musicians and design talent. Elaborate stage sets are visually stunning. Sophisticated sound, lighting and tech systems make it a first class experience.

A cozy, yet good-sized, theater, even the least expensive seats offers great views. The venue is fresh and modern. Isles are wide. Seats are comfortable and roomy.

This place is a gem. We are grateful to have this level of live entertainment so close to home, and so reasonably priced. This week we saw Newsies. Knocked our socks off. Looking forward to next production, Sideshow.

We were able to walk to the venue ... tickets were available ... ticket price was 'right' ... performers were outstanding ... event was very special !
We had a great time !

When I saw that "The Bodyguard" starring former American Idol star LaToya London was going to be here, I knew I wanted to attend the performance, because I had seen it several times at the Papermill Playhouse in Millburn NJ and loved it.

I was pleasantly surprised with the production at the WPPAC. The venue is much smaller than the Papermill, and they obviously don't have the same funding to allow for the plush performances that Papermill can, but they did an amazing job with the resources.

I found out that the WPPAC builds their own sets and directs their own shows. I learned that the cast rehearsed for about 10 days, and then do about 12 performances over a 3 week period. Then everything is over and done with, never to be used again (which is unfortunate for a production this good).

LaToya London came out into the small lobby after the show to meet the people who stayed which was very cool.

I really enjoyed this venue, and will hopefully return for a future performance.

I went to see a play with my husband. Due to the size of the theatre and the way the seats are configured, there is not a bad seat in the house, Purchasing tickets is easy as is parking and access to the theatre.

The White Plains Performing Arts Center is a beautiful theater, comfortable seating, every seat has a clear view, easy to access even center seats in any row. It is adjacent to a large municipal garage, so you don’t need to go outside in bad weather. Escalators and elevators are conveniently located. All kinds of productions are held there, so the quality of the performance depends on which group and what show is being performed. The theater is next to a large movie theater, on the top floor of a mall that contains Target, Barnes & Noble, NORDSTROM Rack, and ShopRite. There are restaurants on the streets around the building, where you can get anything from pizza and burgers to expensive steaks.
The production I saw was community theater, and the performance was extremely professional and polished. If there’s a show there that I want to see, I would not hesitate to go back.

I like this Center, the chairs are comfy and you can see the stage from any seat. They have snacks, beers, wine, etc for sale, you can’t bring food or beverages to this center.

Of course, we picked the coldest, windiest day in 30 years and parking because of recent snow was confusing .... but the performance was awesome. The voices, and the brilliant addition of the chorus, was spectacular! Seats roomy and very comfortable. We’ll be back!
