Unexpectededly great theater

Every show we saw here last summer was original and delightful. It is a high quality theater with innovative performances, but with a cozy Aspen atmosphere.

We saw two performances while visiting Aspen. One was a play entitled "The Cottage" and it was good. The other was the musical "Little Women" and it was fantastic. This is community theater at its very best, and I think they often sell out. The theatre is connected to the absolutely gorgeous John Denver Sanctuary, so be sure to go... More

We are thrilled you enjoyed the shows you attended at Theatre Aspen! On behalf of the actors who performed in the shows, however, we just wanted to point out that Theatre Aspen is a professional, as opposed to community, theatre and that the actors we employ come from all over and are paid to spend their time in Aspen. We... More

This is a must while in Aspen, intimate location and fantastic performers! absolutely a must! NO bad seat in the house, it doesn't matter where you sit, performance usually utilizes all parts of stage, you feel like you are involved in show. Love going to this theater!

What a fun evening! This 2014 show is so entertaining. The cast is extremely talented and full of great spirit. The show is funny, touching, and a really good time. It has adult themes that are tastefully represented. We had a blast! During intermission one can browse the gardens surrounding the tent, including the John Denver sanctuary.

Only attended one concert, in October 2013. This is normally a summer venue and a great one, no heating available during the October concert, but blankets were provided.. Recommended in the summer...

I've been going to the theatre in Aspen for the last five years and every year gets better and better. The plays and the actors are as good as any Broadway show and is so cozy that you don't want it to finish. If you have the time don't miss it

My wife had never seen Le Miz and I love it so we decided to travel to Aspen to see the Theatre Aspen production this summer. We started our week in the mountains with a Thursday inAspen. Neither of us had been to Theatre Aspen before. We have seen a lot of plays together on Broadway, in Denver, and locally... More

We saw a production of Les Mis and it was amazing. Broadway caliber performers (really.. they came from Broadway!) in the most intimate setting.. Probably one of the best theater experiences I have ever had. Reasonably priced.. $60 was the top price level... Next time we are in Aspen we will see all their performances. The cultural experiences in Aspen... More

Saw Les Mis last night at Theatre Aspen. My sister was visiting from California, and we were looking for local experience. The Hurst Theater is an intimate venue, small stage, in a tent, with tiered seating, and not a bad seat in the house (we were in second row a little off center). The minimalist staging brought characters to the... More
