The Denver Center Theater Company produces a eclectic mixture of well-known, contemporary, and locally-commissioned plays, performed by a cast of excellent actors, who obviously love working in Denver. The plays are presented in four different venues, all located within the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, a magnificent location with an opera house, a large Broadway-size theater for traveling productions,...

Went to see a musical recently with some veteran theater goers. Hot tip is to park in the Convention Center parking garage and take the elevated pedestrian walkway to the theater.... it was a snap... easy in, easy out, plan on paying event prices for the parking, but there were plenty of spots to park. The theater itself has plenty... More

I have been a season ticket holder of Denver Center Theater for 8 years and have always enjoyed the performances. There are 3 venues - the Stage Theater, the Space Theater and the Ricketson Theater, all within the Denver Center of Performing Arts complex. The seating plan is good as another review pointed out - there is no bad seats.... More

We have experienced many great performances at this venue. They have great seating plans. There is no bad seat anywhere in the theater. Recently we saw The Book of Mormon which is an excellent show, but not for the young children, The sound system is wonderful which allows you to be apart of the show. There are some shows that...

This is a really lively place on a Sunday even at mid day. The complex is impressive and seems like a great idea to cluster a few theaters in one place with a good location. There are also cafes and restaurants, places to sit and walk. The whole place seems like a lively temple of art.

The DCTC is one subscription we make a priority. The shows are well-produced, the actors high-quality, the selection of shows in a season is entertaining, challenging, funny, sad and heartwarming all at once. The theaters are comfortable with great seats, easy parking downtown at any number of garages or lots, and easy walk to dozens of restaurants for before- or... More

My wife and I live in downtown Denver, a block away from the DCPA complex; one of the main reasons we moved there was to have convenient and frequent access to the Denver Center Theater Company performances. They are excellent, and do a remarkable job in consistently delivering great performances.

One of the best theater companies in the United States - hands down. I have never seen a poor production here - usually see a couple a year. Some of them have been quite memorable. Affordable, quality entertainment. There is just no substitute for live theater.

I love visiting the arts center in downtown Denver. The city offers great theatrical productions, operas, and above all, the Boettcher music center for classical music and the like. Everything so is accessible and marvelous. My only regret is sometimes it is difficult to park, but Denver remains a "growing city."

Small venue. Very intimate; lots of interaction w/cast if that's the kind of show presented. Very polished presentations.
