The Pioneer theatre in Reno has provided outstanding Broadway shows, Philharmonic performances, opera, holiday events, and more. The venue gets better each year and provides a great variety of talent. I recently enjoyed a production of "Chicago" , the final show in this year's Broadway series. It was fantastic!

This is a great venue and we come here frequently for the Broadway Comes to Reno Series, the Reno Philharmonic, and AVA Ballet productions. The geodesic dome design is fantastic and makes for an open space that is far larger than it appears. The volunteer staff are always friendly and helpful You can tell that they truly love the center... More

The venue is conveniently located in the downtown area, with plenty of parking nearby. Theatre is large, but not too large that there is any problem with the sound quality. Seats are thick and very comfortable and there is plenty of leg room. The production we saw was an off-Broadway show and the performers were top-notch. Will definitely return.

Great experience. Go for the VIP seats, worth the extra dollars. Disliked the service fee tagged onto the tickets though, for the price it should have been included.

This theater seats about 1,200. We love to sit in the balcony first row for a great view. My husband has hearing issues and this is not a problem here. Sound quality is great. Cocktails on site a plus for evening shows.

My dad and I have season tickets to see Broadway in Reno. Always enjoy ourselves. Comfortable seats, good ushers, reasonable snack prices, convenient location. Parking is rarely a problem.

Nice venue with good seating anywhere. A little disappointed in the sound quality but still enjoyed the show. Inexpensive food and drink at intermission including alcohol. Row K is the first row of the less expensive seats. Really good.

No matter what type of show you want, check the schedule and plan your trip. If it's on stage, it's Top Level quality. AND the "Underground" is great for Date-night or school kids depending on your needs
