Pioneer Center is an excellent theater in Reno; it brings in very good shows. There is the large performance hall as well as Pioneer Underground. Pioneer Undergrond has a lot of very good comic shows. In Jan 2015 we when to the afternoon children's magic show and had a great time. There was a teacher from Yerington there (who lives... More

Pioneer's Broadway series brings quality road productions of Boadway shows, (Jersey Boys,Chicago, Etc.) to Reno at reasonable prices. Not a bad seat in the house. For food before or after a show try El Fuego for tapas or the Sienna Resort Casino for "Happy Hour". Plenty of free parking in the lot across the street.

Two theaters, the main one and the underground and I go frequently to both. The acoustics are very good and we have a philharmonic as well as opera, shows, broadway shows, and a variety of music in the main theater and more offbeat performances underground. Easy to park there, and lots of good restaurants nearby in walking distance.

Pioneer center is such a nice place to see a show, wish they had a more diverse offering, would be a great place for an intimate concert. I like the seats in the balcony, never have to worry about seeing as the seating is stacked like an IMAX theater. They need to add more refreshment stands as the lines are... More

All the seats have a good view of the stage. Locals enjoy going. They have snacks for sell such as... More

I've been a season ticket holder for the Broadway series for many years. There is nothing like Live Performance - it's a shame there are only 5 events a year, but at least we get the chance to enjoy the shows. The theater is centrally located downtown and the staff really make you feel welcome when you are at the... More

The prices for attending anything at the Pioneer Center are very reasonably priced. Seats are comfortable, and view from any seat is excellent.

We have been season ticket holders for several years. Almost all of the shows are wonderful. The few exceptions (Hair, Defending the Caveman) are just a chance we take with season tickets. We always look forward to each show and will continue for many more years to come.
