First visit and it won't be my last!

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... read more

It's been several years since we've been to the Mayo Perfoming Arts Center and we decided to attend a concert recently by two comedians. The Mayo is located in downtown Morristown where parking can sometimes be a problem. There are plenty of restaurants in the area where you can enjoy a delicious dinner before the show. There is a fairly... More

This is not our regular choice of theater venue but have enjoyed several shows here. We do go to New York and Newark more often than staying in Morristown. It would have been great when our children were younger and we needed a babysitter to go out.

Very nice community theater with decent prices. Sound quality is good and seats are comfortable. Many restaurants in walking distance so you can have dinner before going to the theater.

Wonderful theater in a wonderful town. The schedule of performances is very impressive. Certainly well-known performers, but also many, many other perhaps lesser known talented acts to complete the season. We were lucky enough to share an evening with Kristin Chenoweth. Many more shows to come. Mixture of price points for all shows. A theater this size provides a good... More

This theater is in my town, so it's so easy to see a show or hear a concert at this venue. The only problem is parking since it's sometimes difficult to find an open spot in Morristown center. The theater has been recently renovated, so it's a pleasure to attend an event here.

Great local venue that provides access to great performances. I have attended several concerts here in the last few years and have been impressed every time. The building is both historic and acoustically well designed. The size makes for a more personal experience and the variety of artists should appeal to most everyone.
