“Always A Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Zach Theater is THE live theater in Austin. Great performances, often with local color. Some memorable performances by professional actors who live locally.

“Not a bad seat in the house!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Wow, the new Topfer Theatre in Austin is fantastic---it is mid-sized with just enough seats to feel intimate and yet the way it is built makes the space seem expansive. The orchestra was wonderful, the actors were extremely talented and had beautiful singing voices, costumes were amazing----and the lights and setting were impressive. I loved our afternoon at the Topfer---can't wait to see more productions there! My cousin performs there, so even though we live three hours away, we will be visiting the Topfer frequently in the years to come. The Topfer is definitely a great addition to the arts scene in Austin!

“THE NEW TOPFER THEATRE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The new theatre is a true THEATRE...seeing a play especially a musical is a Broadway-type experience.....ever so much better than you get at the Performing Arts Center which is really a concert hall, NOT a theatre. The Topfer is beautiful, handicap friendly, beautiful bathrooms, lovely efficient bar areas...GO!!! Go, immediately.

“Great new venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Zach has been around forever & is known for excellent productions. The new venue is still intimate but modern, comfortable, state of the art and the upstairs bar has a great view of downtown.

“Like you are on the stage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Saw Xanadu recently. It was hilarious. I love this theater. All seats are within 10 rows to the stage. If you are a little intimidated of going to the theater, don't be. This is Austin. It's common for patrons to wear nice shorts and tennis shoes.
