“As Good As Broadway!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is the perfect venue for shows and concerts and not have to put up with the hassel, tolls and parking in NYC!
The ticket prices are fair and the star power and talent they show there is fantastic.
The seating is comfortable and therer really isn't a bad seat in the house. They seem to strive toward the artsy & succeed with some pretty big names in this smallish theatre. The staff is all volunteer (the theatre is non-profit) and very friendly.
We spent the extra money to join as a patron and highly recommend thai spot.

“Not a bad seat in the house”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

While almost all the really good acts appear only on week nights, this is one great venue as there is not a bad seat anywhere. The prices are modest and the handling fee is only $6. This place rocks especially because they do not use Ticket Master or TeleCharge where the fees are absurd.

Parking issues can stress one out, so get there early and check the Mayo Center website for parking locations.

“Impressive little theater”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I've seen a few shows in this place, Cirque Ziva being the most recent. I like the size of the theater. Large enough for some really interesting shows, but still intimate and cozy, with a classic theater look. They have an awesome variety of shows to please everyone's tastes which is impressive since it's a small community theater.

“Great place to see a show”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Morristown is a great little city and the mayo is a wonderful place to see a show. Many places to eat or have a drink before or after the performance
