The Denver Center for Performing Arts is an amazing place. Went to see the Rogers and Hammerstein review and there wasn’t a bad seat anywhere. The acoustics always amazes me. What a most pleasant evening. Can’t wait to return to see more performances.

The venue is outstanding. It is accessible, even for someone with physical limitations. Acoustics in the theater are wonderful. Seating is roomy and comfortable. The venue is located in the downtown area and easily accessible to many coffee shops, restaurants and bars.

Saw "Beautiful" at the Ellie Calkins - I hadn't been there in years, since it was the Auditorium theater. Great renovation, great acoustics. But the balcony is WAY UP THERE! Look over at your own risk!

Really enjoyed the art displayed throughout the city. Loved the music people played as if freeing their soul. Wonderful experience.

We came by to see the wonderful giant dancing figures - they are really lovely and for us were well worth coming to have a look at for their joy.

Of course, the show itself was fantastic, but this is a review of the venue, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, which has ample parking and plenty of help for the crowds. With security concerns requiring searches of large handbags, I thought DCPA employees...More

The venue is nice with lots of parking right next door. However, there were not enough bathrooms. So at intermission, lines were super long and that takes up your whole intermission. The quality of the shows are great. Seats are comfortable but if you sit...More
