The Mayo Arts center is a great place to see concerts in a more intimate setting as it's not a huge place. The acoustics are good and the venue has a variety of acts. Seats are fairly comfortable as well. It's also easy to get good seats if you buy directly from Mayo as soon as tix go on sale as they don't allow Ticketmaster, etc. to offer them unless it's resale.

Parking is a bit of an issue in Morristown but there is a big parking deck a couple of blocks away. There are many great restaurants close to the theater so it's easy to make a night of it.

We were given tickets to a performance. They are currently doing renovations, so the lobby is under construction; however, they still had a beverage bar open. Seating was very comfortable and easy to see the stage.

Great local theater. Very comfortable. Good selection of shows and concerts, depending on your likes. Many national broadway tours.

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.

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.
