First time at the Vets. Went to see the Red Hot Chili Pipers. Beautiful venue. Polite, friendly service. Great location. Right next to Providence Place Mall, Renaissance hotel and many great restaurants.

I recently attended a show here. I got the "cheap seats" for only $20 on the upper balcony, and had no trouble seeing the stage. The staff is friendly and the theater is just beautiful. There are plenty of bathrooms and drinks are reasonably priced....More

We went to a ‘Music of Vienna’ concert her on a snowy day. We were real pleased with proximity of some parking and the walk from that municipal lot right into the building. This lit probably fills up early but could not have been more...More

Came here to see The Naked Magicians in February 2017. Beautiful theater! Large seating space - easy to see how Broadway shows or operas could play inside. Sound was great, though I had the advantage of second row tickets.

Beautiful venue, great acoustics, fabulous performance. A really wonderful night at The Vet. The Symphony still is unmatched as a night out. Parking is close, seats are a bit cramped.

Refurbished, well appointed..and very comfortable seating. The hotel is right next door to the Renaissance hotel, which also has a dining room. We opted for dinner before the show, which came with complimentary valet parking...that really saves you the aggravation of finding a parking space...More
