Beautiful but it has dreadful acoustics unless you are lucky enough to be in one of the few areas where you can hear everything. When the place was built, the must have hired an architect that knew about beauty but not acoustics. I don't go there much anymore because I am usually disappointed.

Beautiful theater, great staff and experience. I saw Blue Man Group when they came into town in September of 2014. Everyone is friendly, we were seated very quickly, and we had a positive experience. Clean bathrooms too! I always look forward to my trips to the Pioneer.

I have seen several shows here the last couple years and love the venue. It is large but the auditorium is designed great so there really are no bad seats. Good visibility and comfortable chairs.

Always the best place to take friends who love to see the Nutcracker during the holidays. Easy parking and surrounded by good places to eat.

Hey, this is Reno but this venue is top notch. We've seen many performances there - from small-group concerts to the fabulous Christmas extravaganza to former Broadway shows. It's totally professional, excellent acoustics and they get some world-class talent. It's usually a decent value and with free nigh time parking across the street it's very convenient.

Quite a nice theater but I found it a bit expensive. It is the only game in town for the big Broadway shows and they charge Broadway prices. In fact I have bought Broadway tickets in New York cheaper than some of the shows here. To be honest the theater group in Carson City put on just as entertaining a... More

We have had season tickets for Broadway comes to Reno for 5 years and have enjoyed every show. The cost is about $60 per person per show, well below the cost on Broadway and the road shows are professional and wonderful. Try the Pioneer!
