The Palace is a beautiful and luxurious theater with a rich history. The acoustics are great. Each seat is comfortable. The Broadway shows and concerts are sure to entertain. It's a terrific venue for social events. It's one of the best kept secret's in Connecticut.

We scheduled a group tour and were incredible impressed with the staff, building and theater. The staff was attentive and passionate about the history, architecture and future of this amazing venue. We look forward to returning for a show.
