Three people went to see National Theater Live broadcast of a comedy play. Enjoyed it very much. Art Center was comfortable. Prices were reasonable. Staff was welcoming.

We were in Lake Placid for Memorial Day weekend. Lousy weather, lots of rain.... Hiking was off the schedule and we had shopped too much already. I saw an advertisement for Evita at LCP and we were off. We attended a matinee that was the farewell performance and had a blast. The facilities are clean, modern and well designed. Staff are friendly and professional. Ticket prices and intermission snack prices were very reasonable. The quality of the cast was a total surprise. They did an excellent job with a challenging score. The band did well and the singers were terrific.

My experience with the LPCA is that you will do best to attend the Met opera, National Theatre and other movie offerings rather than live theater and dance (both of which range from merely adequate to "yikes!"). There are good art exhibits at times, although there is also quite a range of quality there, too.

The one sure bet is the farmer's market in the summer...it's small, but what's offered is always very high quality.

This small and intimate setting often has some really interesting entertainment and events. Art shows, stand up comedy, ski movies, ballet and even Zumba occasionally for the public in the ballet room. In the Summer there is a wonderful Farmers Market at this site and sometimes there is a Christmas bazaar with local delicacies.

Where else can you see principals of the NYC Ballet, HD live transmissions from the Metropolitan Opera and National Theatre in London, Alvin Haley and other dance troupes and special artsy movies for at most $25 a ticket? You can also see live opera nights, live local theater and live musical theater and park your car for free.
