Mayo is a wonderful venue for seeing great entertainment! All seats are comfortable and offer good listening and seeing pleasure. Very friendly and helpful staff. The theatre is near many interesting, good restaurants. Arrive early to secure nearby parking and then eat at one of the local restaurants.

Went here twice so far. The prices for tickets are reasonable and it's small enough that you can easily watch the performers - I sat in row T both times. The seats are a little worn , however, so it can be a little straining on the back when you sit for too long .

This place was a movie theatre way back, was retrieved from moth ball status by many caring locals. Continuing investments have brought Mayo Arts into the modern era.

The theater is very family oriented, great place to take the family for performances. Arrive early as parking is a premium on the streets or parking centers. Definitely worth a trip to this theater.

Saw this on a snowy evening in January, which unfortunately held back the crowd somewhat. Nevertheless, these four performers (Andrea. McArdle, Faith Prince,Christine Andreas and Maureen Mc Govern) put on a fantastic show, even though they had not been "on Broadway" in many years. The Arts Center is a beautiful venue in itself. The seating is extremely comfortable, the sound... More

Went to see the Pet Shop Boys in November and Astronaut Scott Kelly a few months later. Can honestly say there is not a bad seat in the house. The staff was friendly and the seats are comfortable and clean. Great town (Morristown, NJ) to have dinner and see a show.
