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

Reno has a really great list of art attractions. The symphony is first class and depending on the time of year there are Broadway comes to Reno shows with outstanding traveling companies, opera sometimes and local talent. It is worth knowing what is on

We've been here several times for such events as the Philharmonic and other performances. The theater is well laid out, the seats are comfortable, the acoustics are good, the sound system is excellent, and the lighting system meets the needs of modern expectations. A good place to go for good performances!

The Mrs and I gave this a try it was my first time here. The seating was good. No one blocking us from seeing the stage. The sound could have been turned down just a smidge. The Mrs went to the consession stand and reported that the prices were reasonable. The first experience was good and I would go back... 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.
