Went for my first show here in Denver at the Center for the Performing Arts at the Buell Theater (Kinky Boots). There was an 80's band that was performing that was really good and added to the mood. You can bring a drink and snacks purchased from the bar into the theater. There was a nice supper club across the... More

What great venues with so much flexibility and wonderful staffing! We have seen productions at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, the Buell Theatre and Boettcher Concert Hall and have never been disappointed. Opera, ballet, theatre, Broadway shows, symphony - you name it, they have it. The parking is convenient, and there are many types of dining within walking distance.

There is a thrill attending a show in a big theatre that makes it more memorable than small stage productions.. Check the calendar and plan ahead for a show here. Parking is very easy and there are many nice restaurants in the area as well as hotels within walking distance.

Saw this, this week. Fabulous. Would go again to this play. Kids also loved it that were in attendance that we saw by us. Great way to immerse children into the theatre world. Staff needs to up their awareness. Kids being unruly up a few rows and felt bad for those very near them. I saw the staff did nothing.... More

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.

If you visit Denver you should go see a performance at this venue. There is theatre, broadway touring musicals, ballet and classical music. Something for every taste in this large cultural venue. Plenty of parking, many choices for dining close by. I highly recommand it for an evening activity in downtown Denver.

We went to the Garner Galleria Theater, at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, to see the play An Act of God. It was really a great & funny story. The theater is pretty quaint, but it's pretty cool as it's an intimate setting, and they serve drinks at your seats. We highly recommend you attend a play at... More
