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

Fantastic place. Plays are always well produced. The cafe is a great way to begin, in between or after. One of the many jewels of Rochester, NY.

GEVA is a fantastic little theatre. Every seat gives you a great view. I have seen many performances and not one has been a disappointment.

have seen many performances here. Not a bad seat in the house. Could use a break on off-times ticket prices. But still the best theater in Rochester.

GEVA not only has a major theater showing well-known plays; but, also has a smaller stage and seating theater for new playwrights' plays. I have enjoyed both venues over the years.
