Variety of shows

I have only experience the children's shows. They are very well performed and held the interest of an 8 and 6 year old. Costuming unique. Enjoyed all the shows.

I'm a performer who has been involved with Mayo Arts for many years. Not only does it rival the best NYC theaters backstage, but the audience has the same gracious amenities. That is, without the parking headaches, huge price tags etc. Many, many wonderful restaurants are also within walking distance. Mayo is truly our "Local Manhattan theatre" right here in... More

Saw Capt Kelly and Capitol Steps Both shows were great! So easy to park and have dinner before the shows. New shows coming all the time.

This performance space was completely renovated several years ago which greatly improves the experience. Performances are varied both in quality and content but are generally very good. Schedule is published and posted well in advance. Some great old time individuals and groups are often included. Plenty of restroom facilities and a bar is available. Parking is always a challenge but... More

One of the finest Nutcracker performances I've ever seen. The dancers of NJ Ballet are exquisite and the live music by the NJ Symphony is amazing. The costumes and sets are a feast for the eyes. It's just magical! The venue at MPAC is wonderful. This is just such a great time and a lovely cultural event for a family... More

Been here a few times for plays and performances. They get decent acts, have reasonable prices and there isn't a bad seat in the house. In addition, you have many restaurants and other attractions within a few blocks radius. They don't have their own parking lot but there are a few lots in walking distance, some also have free shuttle... More

The Mayo center has reasonably good performers for a reasonably good price. It is not NYC quality, but then you are not paying NYC prices and it is local and convienient. The acoustics are not great at the Mayo. I heard Manheim Steamroller and the acoustics distorted some of the music. It was still a very enjoyable performance. Lily Tomlin... More

I just love this place. I have been 2-3 times to see shows with my son. Perfect place to spend your weekend. The parking can be an issue but there are lot of parking lots in the vicinity.

I recently visited MPAC for the first time to see Los Lobos in concert. I was impressed. The lobby has snacks, beer, wine, etc. And they pull in some pretty big names. Easy to park.
