The Power Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors in 1971 and since then has become one of the premier performing arts venues in Ann Arbour. The place is designed by Jo Mielziner who has designed the famous Vivian Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Theatre. The structure consists of massive columns and mirrored glass that brighten up the entire place without taking out from its modern, classic architecture and design. Currently, the place can seat more than 1300 people and also include rehearsal rooms, a reception space, and dressing rooms. The stage itself resembles the ancient Greek Amphitheatre system but the seating has a balcony area that increases its capacity. For art lovers, this is a good place to see what is trending in the city and with its state-of-the-art sound systems and high-quality productions, every performance here is sure to leave you thrilled!

Power Center For The Performing Arts Reviews & Ratings
Attended a Madeline Peyroux concert here in June. Only slightly difficult to find the building/parking structure. Small, intimate venue. I'm 5'3 and felt the seats a bit small and uncomfortable. My partner is 6'0 and was fortunate to have an aisle seat. Sound quality was good.
There are no bad seats in this theater. Parking in the adjacent structure means you can easily drive to it and enter in bad weather without rain gear, etc. The seating is much more comfortable than the the stately and refurbished Hill Auditorium concert hall. It is used primarily for small concerts and theatrical performances. It does have relatively limited bathroom facilities for its size.
Wonderful venue- not a bad seat in the house! And a lovely lobby perfect for mingling.
Every experience I've had at the Power Center has been phenomenal. The shows I've seen have been off the charts masterpieces. The staff has been kind, competent and beyond helpful. If you want a world class theater experience, choose the Power Center.
I have been to 2 performances here now and enjoyed both of them. The auditorium is large and both times I sat in the balcony. The seat setup can be a little confusing but there are ushers everywhere that are there to help you if need be. I also appreciate a large variety of performances take place here
