A Christmas Carol

We attended with two children. It was a Fabulous experience for all of us. We sat down front and were completely caught up in the performance.

We are almost-30-year subscribers and have been to some excellent plays and others not so memorable, but the technical qualities (set, lighting, costumes, sound) are always top notch.

As western New York state's only professional regional theatre Geva Theatre Center stands out as one of the best in the country. Production values are always first rate, acting is usually superb and ticket prices are very reasonable for the professional caliber productions offered.

Saw an excellent show yesterday (Miracle on South Division) at GEVA. It was our first time there and we decided it is a great venue. Although seated in the back row, we were still close to the stage, with had a perfect view. You can't go wrong no matter where you sit. The ushers were all very kind and pleasant,... More

We really enjoyed Spamalot! It was a great show and really look forward to another. Parking is easy and convenient and the staff and volunteers are always friendly and helpful. Geva is a wonderful asset to downtown Rochester.

Geva Theatre is a perfect spot to see a show. Easy to access location, plenty of secure parking, nice lobby, small café, large restrooms all add up to a perfect experience. We enjoyed the current show "Miracle on South Division Street". It was a fun production with excellent actresses and actor.

The Geva Theater is one of the few places where there is not a bad seat in the house. They use professional actors and still incorporate local talent when possible. The sets and lighting are spot on no matter the production. Saw Miracle on Division St based in Buffalo and written by a Buffalo native. Love the behind the scenes... More

Intimate theater experience where there is not a bad seat in the house. Professional actors doing excellent work close to home for us in Rochester. Cafe is a great place for a quick bit to eat before the show. Attending the prologue helps put the play into context for an even more enjoyable event. There is always a mix of... More

Attended the production of Miracle on South Division. Based on a family in Buffalo and their involvement with the miracle. A humorous presentation by three "family" members. Just keep your smile on your face from beginning to end, waiting for the next line. Comfortable theatre for an enjoyable evening.
