Phoenix Theatre is one of the artistic gems in Arizona. The productions are almost always at the highest professional level in terms of acting, singing and dance. They now have two theaters and a lovely bar area to visit before or after the show. My only reservation is the cost of the tickets - but you get what you pay... More

The new lobby is complete and comfortable with snacks and beverages available at the bar. There are intimate theaters for watching high quality performances by local artists. The last we saw was a great production of Avenue Q...hilarious!

We have been season ticket holders for over 12 years and enjoy most productions. Nice way to enjoy the theater without it being too pricey.

Currently playing Les Mis. I've seen this production a dozen times and theirs is one of the best. Many superior voices in the cast plus seasoned performers. The theater is small so diction and voices are easy to hear and understand. Food and bev. available either there or at the adjacent Phoenix Art Museum. We walked for 10 minutes and... More
