The DCPA is a fabulous and varied venue, with opportunities to view outstanding theatre, orchestra concerts, opera, touring shows, ballet, and more. There's an excellent parking structure, accessibility built in everywhere, and food and drink options. All this wrapped up in an aesthetically-pleasing and well-designed space. Highly recommended!

I've been to the DCPA several times and each visit has been great. We've seen Les Mis, The Bicycle Man, Jane Lynch, and Defending the Cave Man. Every show was worth every penny. Les Mis was in their biggest venue, Jane Lynch in the medium sized theater, and the other two in the Garner Galleria Theater which is smaller and... More

Recently had the delightful experience of seeing Motown the Musical at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Parking was a breeze. The performance was awesome. Enjoyed every aspect of the evening.

This was an hilarious one man show, based on finding amusement in the differences of men and woman. People were shouting "Thank you" at the end. It really gave the audience the ability to understand and, perhaps, laugh at the differences. The drinks offered throughout the show were reasonable, but they were already out of popcorn at the beginning of... More

Saw the remarkably mediocre "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" with sub-par leads. Neither Ace Young nor wife Diana (both very nice people I am sure!) are of the quality required by such a setting and my $95 (x4) tickets. Played out like a collection of skits with no emotional connection to the audience. A couple of exceptions by far... More

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.
