Great show and really nice facility

We saw Motown - The Musical here. The staff was pleasant and drink prices were reasonable. Theater is really steep though. Hold the railing!

Location, Parking, Beauty, and such a variety of options to soak in some culture, to say nothing of an impressive list of nearby eateries, pubs and restaurants. Our performance was in the Stage Theater, a semi-circle of comfortable seats with great acoustics. This is a wonderful venue with easy access to the Interstates for a quick entry or exit. I... More

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is Broadway condensed. It has shows for every taste. We saw Motown the Musical at the Buell Theatre and it was fun, fun, fun. Best yet is that it is within walking distance of all of the hotels in the vicinity of the 16th Street Mall, and all of the major touring shows... More

The first half was really very good, but then it started to drag in the second half. First half music was great, but the Diana Ross in the audience didn't really do it for me.

We saw Motown the Musical and it was spectacular. I love the Buelle and the atmosphere there. It is something we try and do a few times a year.

I recently visited and watched the Colorado Symphony Orchestra perform "Danny Elfman's Music From the Films of Tim Burton." Aside from the music being amazing to begin with, the CSO really brought it to life and Boettcher is a great concert hall. The staff is accommodating and helpful and just about anywhere in the hall is a great spot to... More

Denver has made enjoying the arts so easy! The Denver Center for Performing Arts houses 6 theaters in a beautiful venue with easy access to transportation and parking. The Buell Theater was beautiful and I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We loved the show Stomp and would see another... More

My daughter (10 years old) and I were given tickets to the "Ballet MasterWorks" on March 1, 2015 as a gift. In the past the ballet has always seemed a bit stuffy and not all that exciting. This performance, however, was entirely enjoyable. There were three very different dances: one classical style, one modern ballet and one that was almost... More

I am always surprised at the caliber of Broadway tours that come to Denver. (other than Jekyll and Hyde) They are usually 1st run directly from Broadway. I find that the shows are consistently good with great priced seats. The number of family oriented shows especially around the holidays is great. The local theatre productions are also of good quality... More
