Went to see The Illusionists with the wife and child. Brought tickets at the last minute and had stool seats, but more comfortable than I thought. Great views and sound. Wished they had discounted tickets for kids. Silly to spend full price for a child.

Funny, sad and entertaining all at the same time. This is especially enjoyable for anyone who know Shakespeare, but even for those of us who do not.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical, Finding Neverland. See denvercenter website for details and tickets.
I'm looking at the seating chart for The Ellie but I do not understand how the balconies, mezzanine, parterre and orchestra "stack". Does the Mezz hang over the Parterre? Any suggestions for seating? I'm hoping to see Book of Mormon there in September. Thanks for your help.

We're delighted that you're interested in attending The Book of Mormon when you are visiting Denver. The levels do indeed "stack" with the balcony being the highest level; however, they are in a bit of a raked fashion so... More
