MPAC is a very good theater and a great place to see a show in Morristown. Acoustics are excellent and everyone is very friendly. Make sure you enjoy one of the many restaurants in town before the show as well.

While the tickets can get quite pricey , for a location in Morristown NJ, the show itself is top notch. There are no bad seats, all have an excellent view! the parking is easy, and there are so many choices for a bite to eat before or after

My friend and I went to Morristown, NJ, to see Celtic Thunder at the Mayo Theatre on Aug. 20, 2016. Without a doubt, Celtic Thunder was just wonderful. The lads always sing their hearts and give 100%. Always a live show, no taped singing. The May theatre was lovely. Well managed as we entered the theatre. The ushers were extremely... More

Have seen many comedians and bands there. Strongly recommend if you are in the area. Theatre was upgraded in recent years.

Their theater may be small, but their lineup is not. They get some really good acts and plays. They have plays, musicals, a diverse number of musicians, children's theater all at a good price. I've never had a bad seat.

It's a great venue....the only issue is the parking situation....it's not easy to park and then you have a far distance to walk and that's tough for some people....they might want to think about valet parking for people to pay up front I would use it.

Thanks so much for your feedback. We are constantly working to find parking solutions for our patrons. For many performances we offer parking across the street at the Presbyterian Church, and we offer a free shuttle from the DeHart parking garage. We recommend that patrons consult our pre-show email or visit our online pre-show planner at http://www.mayoarts.org/visitor_info/preshow-planner More

Been to two shows here this year and I don't think there is such thing as a bad seat in the house! They have such a variety of things shown here and I look forward to seeing more!

A little bit of entertainment heaven. MPAC is an outstanding entertainment center located in the heart of Morristown. The quality of the talent they engage coupled with the convenience of it's location, the restaurants and eateries nearby and the friendly, customer oriented staff make MPAC the real deal. Go to one show and before long you'll find yourself joining as... More

First time at this beautiful theater to see the Happy Together Tour - great show, don't think there's a bad seat in the house, friendly staff, air conditioned. Sat in the balcony and excellent view of the stage, etc. Such a fantastic line up of shows and while not inexpensive, much more reasonable than NYC.
