Over the years we've been watching plays here, the place is very nice. Nice acoustics, cozy and great view of the stage. If you live in Rochester, I recommend buying the season pass, if you are visiting and there is a play going on at Geva Theater, and worth going.

Great place to see a live play! Upscale theater, comfortable seats, great view of the stage where ever you sit. Two theaters in one. Wine bar before the show and at intermission. Downtime, ample paid parking

We are from out of town, but have attended two performances here. Spring of 2016 saw To Kill a Mockingbird. Especially poignant as it was day after Harper Lee's death. Then last night saw A Christmas Carol. Absolutely wonderful productions both! Christmas Carol had us both laughing and crying! Acting, costumes, sets, everything here is top notch! We had online...

Probably depends on what's playing at the time, but the plays are always well-performed, well-staged and the building is a fun place to watch live theatre.

We saw "Mother and Me" a one-woman show performed by Melinda Buckley at Geva Theatre, 75 Woodbury Blvd, Rochester, NY 14609, (585) 232-4382, The show started at 7:00 PM and ran to 9:30 PM, and I liked the early start, allowing time for a drink afterwards. The show tackles a tough topic, but it was handled with skill, eliciting both... More

I recently attended a college event at the newly renovated GEVA theater, the new decor is beautiful. The buffet meal was scrumptious and the play was hilarious with class.

Heard a lot about the new renovations, with the expanded kitchen and bar. Can't comment too much on the kitchen, as all we got was a cannoli (which was very good), but the bar was better before. The 4 people they had behind the bar were slower than the 2 that they used to have, and the pours were INCREDIBLY... More

Shows here are very nice and because it is a smaller venue, it is a nice intimate showing. Local restaurants are also very close by.

I have been a season ticket holder for many years. Geva is a wonderful theater that has been recently renovated. The seats are comfortable and there is good viewing from every seat in the house. The plays have been terrific. The actors are professionals and the sets are outstanding.

The renovations were well worth the wait! It is clear that they were needed after seeing the new space! Great job!
