It was named to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970s.

Providence Performing Arts Center attracts audiences each year with a variety of events, from concerts to Broadway productions. Legendary rock acts including the Doors and Van Morrison have taken the stage at the theater, and productions of Wicked and Les Misérables have entertained visitors as well. It has launched a notable 13 national Broadway touring acts, including Rogers and Hammerstein’s King and I in November 2016.

Providence Performing Arts Center is conveniently located off Interstate 95. Parking is readily available in nearby garages and lots, and the venue provides curbside drop-off just outside its front door. A variety of restaurant options, including pizza, seafood and steak, are all within walking distance of the venue. Accommodations are available at several hotels within a few blocks.
