I took some students to see a show here...very pretty inside. Some people might not like the size since it is very small but that is exactly why I liked it. Everyone has an excellent view of the stage.

I love Geva! I've been coming here since a teen to watch a Christmas Carol. It has become a family tradition. Never disappointing.

This year, I bought season tickets to the Nextstage for my husband's birthday. We have always have been season ticket holders to the Mainstage but wanted to explore the Nextstage. Whatever venue is chosen, any patron would not be disappointed! Pure talent in every aspect of the experience!

It's a little too expensive for us to go regularly, but we love the discussions they have before and after the plays.

I have been to theaters all over New York and find this little theater one of the best in the country. They have a verity of plays and bring great people from NYC to work in the shows. They also feature local theater and encourage the community to get involved.

This beautiful theatre's sterling reputation for presenting well crafted, thought provoking artistry is well deserved! The talent is top notch, the sight lines are excellent, the seats comfortable, and the adjoining cafe is a great place to grab a light snack or a drink. If you're looking for culture in Rochester, the GEVA is a must stop!

We like going to Geva. This last play was excellent! Actors did a very good job and very good story line! The theater is not that big so it is easy to get in and out with out a big hassle.

frankly, the material we've seen here rivals much of that on broadway at maybe one-quarter of the cost... ironic that buffalo couldn't keep its regional theater, but GeVa plays on

I will be seeing more plays here in 2014, I watched the annual holiday production 'A Christmas Carole. The theatre is small and wonderfully restored; excellent production, casting, lighting and special effects. Intermission is delightful too. The lobby/cafe is small, however, it is well equipment from a small bar (wine too), with coffee tea and sweets. This is a nice... More
