The Denver Center is an impressive collection of theaters used for diverse performances- from Broadway musicals and full orchestral music to new and cutting-edge new plays and performance art. After being shuttered for 18 months due to COVID, their redesigned box office and lobbies are open for live performances as of November 2021- strict health safety are in place- required vaccinations, plus face masks and some social distancing protect the audience performers and employees. Thrilling shows on the stage schedule include Moulin Rouge, Pretty Woman, Hadestown and (probably) Hamilton.

Nice to walk and admired the sculpture outside of the building. It’s Sunday and pandemic the place was closed. It was nice to take pictures. Surprisingly it’s windy and cold.

Located in downtown Denver, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts is a complex of artistic venues. Within the complex is the Buell Theater which features high profile traveling Broadway shows, comedy acts, dramatic plays. as well as, musicals.

The Garner Galleria Theater is more of a cabaret style venue. It is more intimate with table service. Drinks are reasonable, as are ticket prices. The theater seats about 200 and features musicals and comedy acts.

Other venues in this complex of the arts include the Boettcher Concert Hall, Helen Bonfila Theater and the Ellie Caulkin's Opera house. There is a sculpture grounds at the rear of the complex.

A unique feature of the Performing Arts Complex are the acting instructions available and backstage tours. Their education department develops the talents of aspiring actors in well instructed classes.. The Theater Company is a Tony Award winning troupe.

The Seawell Grand Ballroom hosts meetings, receptions and galas while the Off-Center offers experiential performances. Having all these artistic venues in one place has many upsides but parking is not one of them. Simultaneous popular events can create a real parking headache.

Always a great place to go, I never don't have a great time going to DCPA. The Colorado Ballet, plays, musicals; they're all wonderful. The people who work in the theaters are usually great. Pro tip: if you want a drink at intermission, you can buy it ahead of time and have it waiting for you with your name. There are lots of places to each around and some places you can eat and valet your car if you don't want to use the DCPA garage or Uber.

Most recently we saw Rent, a high energy musical we both enjoyed. In early we saw the Donna Summer musical, also high energy with incredible voices.

Excellent venue (wonderful acoustics) but parking can be tough and traffic around that area can be tricky. So be sure to leave enough time to get to the venue, find parking, and then get to where you need to be in enough time that you aren't stressing before the performance.

Very nice venue and excellent sound. Small venue, very new and clean. Visibility to stage all good. A great place for many performances or many types.

While visiting grandkids in Castle Rock for Christmas we enjoyed DCPA’s presentation of Escape to Margaritaville. The seating was excellent and everyone was so welcoming and helpful. We will definitely patronize this venue with our next visit to Colorado.

We attended a special Christmas show with the Colorado Symphony at Boettcher Concert Hall! Fantastic venue with comfortable seats (and legroom!) and wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommend!
