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

This "center" has eight different stages of varying size and style - almost literally something for everyone. We recently attended a Broadway-style show at the Buell which is one of the larger and more modern facilities. Sightlines and sound were good in the lower balcony. Staff were professional. Overall it was an impressive theatre in which to enjoy the show.

Went to Celtic Woman and Denver Symphony for Christmas concert. Super Performance and a great facility. Sounds are awesome and carry throughout. Not a bad seat in the house.

The facility is quite modern and functional, the people friendly. Enjoyed "Finding Neverland" Dec. 29th. Was impressed with the sound in the theatre - and especially the performance. Wasn't sure what to expect, and it did seem a bit on the slow side before the first intermission, but the second half was excellent, and I would rate the show excellent... More

This is an amazing center. We had tickets for "A Christmas Carol" and we were not disappointed. Not only was the theater great but the actors were also great. If you don't see a play you need to go and just see the facility. It is fun to see several types of performing art theaters in one place.
