We have attended numerous plays, musicals, concerts and movies over the years. The facility, staff and offerings are always top-notch. Probably ranks as the most beautiful venue upstate and easily surpasses many Broadway (NYC) theater district houses which have not been kept up. Highly recommend...More

Proctors is the best place to go to see a concert or a play. The sound system is awesome. The place is old with a lot of history there. It's worth any price. There is no bad seat either.

We had the chance to see “the King and I” and totally loved it. Wonderful costumes, stage sets, orchestra and cast. Loved the voices as well as the story. Packed theater but helpful volunteers/ushers.

This year my husband bought a subscription for the 2917-2018 season. This was a great purchase. Proctor's is a great place to see a Broadway show. I have seen many great shows here and have enjoyed them all. Great sound quality and a beautiful theatre.

Been here countless times and it’s a gem of a theatre. New York Broadway productions at half the price. I would suggest it should be on everyone’s bucket list.

I don't know. When attending a performing arts program I tend to favor the balcony for visual and acoustical reasons. I'd like to hear about the experiences of others who had orchestra seats during a musical production.
