Attending Dirty Dancing Performance @ the Buell Theater, The Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Excellent performance, really enjoyed the play. Not a bad seat in the house.

I am easily entertained, but not on 2/5/16. The skit was at the Garner Galleria and was entitled Murder for Two. I could not find reviews for the skit, so we chanced it since the tickets were free and we were in Denver for dinner. I am glad I did not pay for the tickets. The cast of two did... More

We saw the stage production of "Dirty Dancing" for the first time last night and thoroughly enjoyed the performance. I think it would be hard to follow the story if you weren't familiar with the movie, though. Some of the performers (Johnny, Billy, etc.) need to speak up and/or turn up their microphones as it was often difficult to hear... More

Well, I guess I'm the lone gunman once again. I am sick and tired and beyond of spending ridiculous dollar amounts on tickets to the THEATER (NOT the Monster Truck Rally) just to listen to drunken trash who think their loud, obnoxious comantery is delightful and witty. The announcements at the beginning of the production go as far as to... More

I've been to the Denver Center for Performing Arts seven times in my life and each time stands out clearly in my mind. I went for The Sound of Music in 1999, Beauty and the Beast in 2001, A Christmas Carol in 2002, The Phantom of the Opera in 2005, A Christmas Carol in 2014, and both The Lion King... More

My sister took the family to see a Christmas Carol. The area was absolutely beautiful. My 7 year old daughter enjoyed the show. The lobby was nice and sold beverages. The seating was very comfortable.

We went to the DCPA to see the Lion King and as always we had a such a great experience! The complex is always clean and the staff is always friendly and helpful.

While it's obvious that some folks are writing reviews about the show, I would like to offer some perspective about the venue itself. My wife and I attended the show at the Buell on Black Friday. We figure most people would be too busy shopping to be in the arts and theater district. We were right. Traffic going to the... More

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
