It's always a good show at Geva. Our most recent was Wait Until Dark. It was about a blind woman in the 1940s, The actors, set and costuming were great. I am so happy we have such great theater in Rochester. Some years we are season subscribers, some years we only go to a few shows. No matter out choices,... More

Each year GEVA's Main Stage presents a wonderful group of plays for the Rochester Area theater goers. There isn't a bad seat in the entire theater. There is also a Next Stage which often presents "one man" stage performances. Parking is not a problem since there is a parking garage across the street.

We've seen many productions at Geva over the past few years and have never been disappointed. Geva consistently produced quality theatre accessible to everyone. Every seat has a great view and the bar/cafe are spacious and well done.

I really enjoyed my visit. We saw a great show as part of the Rochester fringe, and the seasonal programming looked as if it had wide ranging appeal. I liked the modern, spacious foyer and the clean and plentiful toilets. Will be revisiting next time I'm in the area.

One of my favorite theatres in Rochester. Not a bad seat in the house. Wonderful shows, nice cafe, amble parking all around the theatre.

This theater is small, but has a bar area in front where you can mingle before going into see the play. It is small, but is beautiful inside and offers a good view of the plays because it is small. The productions are excellent and professional. We will be going back again soon.

I have been to Geva Theatre many times and have enjoyed it every time. It's very easy to get to, parking is plentiful and the plays are very well done.

We have NEVER seen any show at Geva that isn't first-rate! Most recently we saw "The Odd Couple" and were blown away by the quality of the production. Casting, sets, lighting, sound - everything was "top shelf". We were also able to attend the Prologue before that show and enjoyed getting a bit of background about both the play and... More

I hadn't been to Geva in several years, but we decided to see a play on opening night, on a Tuesday evening. Just wanted something to do. Everything was pretty much the same on a week night as on a weekend, although this particular night must have been volunteer night because there were a lot of people saying they were... More
