Theater in Denver

Denver is fortunate to have the DCPA. It's a mini-Broadway in the heart of downtown. Where it's a symphony, musical, play or intimate comedy, this complex provides it.

We had the great fortune of seeing Wicked on Broadway in NYC and was excited to see it again close to home in Denver. This was an amazing performance in a beautiful theater. It was hard to believe we weren't actually on Broadway. I've been to other plays at the Center and have not had a bad seat. It's a... More

What a wonderful experience to see such a performance in such a lovely theater! We also browsed around 16th street, so much to do and so much to see! Great place to people watch!

My wife and I took our kids to Denver to see Wicked. They absolutely loved the show! The theater was very easy to find for out-of-towners. We used Parking Panda to reserve parking before we got there, I highly recommend that as parking seemed that it would be crazy without it. The theater was laid out well, it was easy... More

We have seen many shows here over the years. It is very well organized and offers excellent performances on a variety of stages. Clean, easy, comfortable and convenient for a night on the town.

Every venue we have visited in the DCPA is great. Just saw "Wicked" in the Buell Theatre, and loved it, as always. The theatre is big and lovely. The Galleria theatre is perfect for a smaller crowd and a cocktail lounge feel. And the Opera House is spectacular. ALWAYS a specail treat to get to see a show at this... More

This is a really wonderful amenity in Denver, big enough to see Broadway shows, small enough to feel intimate. It's worth it to get the orchestra seats from about row T downwards. Wine is horribly overpriced, $9 for a very small glass, I'd go for beer if I wanted a drink. Shows start at the time on the ticket, that... More

Went to see Wicked at the Buell. The performance was outstanding with exceptional acoustics and good line of sight for most of the show. Very attentive and professional staff. The major issue was that it was burning hot throughout the show in the theater. Almost everyone inside were fanning themselves with their programs; and, the programs themselves were sticking to...
