Great venue! Easy in / out parking in the area and this city is very walk-able. Spend the afternoon in the city. See a matinee and then go to Hemenways for dinner with 1/2 price bottles of wine

Providence Performing Arts Center is very nice for the small space they have. There really is not a bad seat in the house.

A subscription for the season is definitely worth it. Not a bad seat in the house, parking is no problem, and the shows are as fabulous as going to NY!
