We attended the evening performance of Lion King last evening with friends and really enjoyed the show. Even though we were sitting in the balcony we could hear every work spoken by the performers. Must see if you can still find tickets.

This was a great experience for all ages. I had looked for tickets for three weeks with no luck. I had considered a third party ticket outlet however, the box office advised me to continue to check back daily, as they often receive tickets back as a donation from patrons who cannot attend. After waiting for three weeks, I was... More

Yes, the staff are very helpful and the place is lovely, but why couldn't I understand most of the words when the performers sang? It was loud enough, but the words in the songs were unintelligible. The other 3 people in my party had the same experience. We saw the Lion King and it was good, but I would have... More

I went with a Senior group and it was truly fabulous!! It will only be there through November 22nd so get your tickets now! You won't be disappointed!! There were quite a few school groups there for the 2:00 matinee and they loved it also!! I would be happy to go again!!

Granted the Galleria is not quite ready for prime time...but we have seen some very good shows: Always Patsy, Greater Tuna, Forever Plaid and many more. Murder for 2 did not measure up. It was like seeing our 5 & 7 year Olds doing a nonsensical production, at least the players enjoyed it.

I traveled from Kansas City to see a show here and I was amazed by how stunning this theatre complex is. It's gorgeous with lots of shopping and restaurants nearby.

With all the outstanding reviews, my date and I were surely to laugh until we cried. However, most of the show was boring. It had its moments where we chuckled, a time or two when we laughed but not much more than that. The first half we were certain he was revving up for the really hysterical parts, but it... More

My first visit to the Buell and what a beautiful place. The theater was clean and well-taken care of, definitely not a bad seat in the house; and the ticket-takers, ushers and refreshment workers were friendly and pleasant. Will definitely be back for another show. One of the best perks: the RTD stops right across the street!!

This was the second time I have seen this show, although it was about five years apart and I previously saw it in Minneapolis. It was just as fun the second time and he really is a talented comedian. The two hours went by quickly! Our only complaint had nothing to do with his performance and more to do with... More
