I've been to several other productions at the Buell and not had this issue, but this time the sound was a real issue. When the music became louder the words became unintelligible. With many productions this wouldn't be that much of an issue, though with...More

Just saw Frozen and can say that this theatre is comparable to those in Broadway! It is definitely modern but the lights and sound are pretty legit! The lobby is very airy. The house is bigger than usual theatres in Broadway.

The Buell Theatre is massive, double the size of many of the theatres on Broadway. Caught the showing of Frozen here and the stage looked small when seen in this venue. I prefer the smaller, more intimate venues for broadway shows in NYC. The place...More

We have a wonderful performing art complex in Denver. We saw Disney's stage version of Frozen. A little long, but worth every second. A spectacular performance by everyone. The vocals, set and special affects all worth the standing ovation as people literally jumped out of...More

Went to the pre-production of Frozen. Wonderful experience as always. The Buell is simply top notch. We always look forward to a show at the Buell. DCPA does a wonderful job with all the productions at the theater.
