“A delightful surprise...what a gem”

Hylton Performing Arts Center
Ranked #4 of 40 things to do in Manassas
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Moving to Manassas three years ago we thought our nights going to a show or concert would involve a 90 minute drive into D.C. as well as a $20 parking fee at the Kennedy Center. Then we discovered the Hylton Center...What a treat!!!...From the special Christmas shows to the Chinese Acrobats and everything in between we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves .A more modern Performance Center you could not dream of..and free and convenient parking. Special rates are offered for students and seniors as well as special subscriptions. The staff couldn't be nicer and they offer a wide variety of events...concerts.theater, opera,ballet, something for every member of the family. Fantastic gem in our own backyard

The acoustics in this performing arts center are simply outstanding. I have not been to a show where the artists did not comment on this aspect. It is designed as a nine story opera house, yet contains only 1100 seats.

We have seen several shows here and the only reason for 4-stars instead of 5 is my desire to see more contemporary types of acts. How about some comedians? Some folk or country singers? Some Americana types of music (in addition to the bluegrass shows). There also seems to be a number of "repeat" acts.

If you haven't been, check it out. Join "The Friends of the Hylton" and use your voice to encourage the types of entertainment you would like to see. The venue is a GEM in an unexpected setting.

We are so lucky to have this outstanding venue in our own back yards. We have been many times in the few years that it has been open and will continue to return. The variety of performances is incredible. Find something that interests you and support this wonderful, beautiful, facility!

Wife and I attended a show here last night. First time for me but the wife has been here a few times. The lobby has two small bars for drinks if you so desire but they cannot be taken to your seats. We had very nice seats near the stage. I'm tall and the wife found these on the map so there are some available if you're extra tall. The seats were not the most comfortable but they were okay. The interior is nicely decorated and the staff there are also very nice. They do a good job helping everyone find their seats.

There are so many events here, but we do try to make it to at least one Holiday play or music. Great venue. Close to us.
