“Movin' Melvin Brown rocked it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

If i'd known I was going to see a 68yr old man dirty dancing and removing his pants I'd have given this show a miss so Im very glad I didn't as Melvin did a fine show. All alone with a backing track he easily entertained for ninety minutes....whats more hes in wicked shape for a man half his age!

The theatre is a really nice venue. I like the stage and also the foyer and bar areas. Its a welcoming modern theatre with realistic prices.

“GEVA Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We recently viewed Mom's at Geva. It was well done and the theatre was full.
We have gone to several other performances over the past two years and have not been disappointed. The tickets are reasonable priced and the shows come in from various areas including NYC. As a great regional theater would recommend for visitors, as well as, people from the 5- county area surrounding Rochester.

“The best (and only) professional theatre in Rochester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The only equity theatre in Rochester, Geva has been oustanding for decades. I'm not the regular season subscriber that I used to be but that doesn't stop me from going downtown to visit several times a year and enjoy great performances. I'm not always the biggest fan of artistic director Mark Cuddy's work but I've still enjoyed some of his direction and the majority of plans are directed by other guest directors

Overall, I love the theatre and there's really not a bad seat in the house.

“Geva Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great regional theater with some original play in there season. Intimate seating in the round so there are no bad seats in the theater. Each season has 6 plays in the main theater and additional plays in their smaller theaters. We have been subscribers for 28 years and have enjoyed most of the plays

“A Real Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Geva Theatre brings to Rochester amazing theatrical performances. Professional theatre that is 100% top notch. Both the Main Stage theater and the Next Stage are both intimate theaters allowing for great seats for every performance. The actors can be local or well known professional actors previously seen on TV, in the movies or Broadway stages or a combination of both. The set designers always completely transform the stage and for the next of hours take you to places unknown - into the future or back in time. I guanatee once you experience a Geva performance you will return again and again ... an perhaps even decide to become a supporting member. Their Christmas Carol show is always sold out with patrons begging for more.
