The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts (or PAC as we call it) is in it's 25th year in downtown Anchorage. We have been enjoying shows there for almost 15-years and during that time it seems to have aged very well. The main theater is large enough host Broadway productions such as The Lion King, yet intimate enough that almost every seat is a good seat. The acoustics are excellent throughout, even in the "nosebleed" section. Although it may be considered small for a performing arts center, that's a good thing. I would suggest staying away from the upper balcony though, as if you can afford to get a little closer it is worth the extra price. Bottled water is allowed inside the theater, and the restrooms are ample enough that during intermission there may be lines but they always move fast enough to make it back to your seats on time. I also like it that before the shows, EACH ticket window is actually staffed! That makes it easy to collect "will call" tickets without having to stand in a long line, and I really appreciate that. I am very happy to have such a great place to see concerts, Broadway, and one man shows in Anchorage. (I must also plug the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra here, as they put on fantastic shows in the PAC as well.)
