First I'll review the theater, then the play. I go to the ballet every year at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the DCPA, but this was my first time at the small, intimate Stage Theater that boasts "No seat is more than 13 rows from the stage". We were in Section 5 (stage right), Row E, which was seven... More

Every time we decide to attend a concert or event at DCPA, we are so proud of our adopted hometown! The recent performance of Barber's Adagio for Strings with a guest performance by violinist Augustin Hadelich just reinforced the rise of Denver as a major urban cultural center. The symphony has expanded its repertoire and offers younger and more expanded... More

One of the most enjoyable evenings in a long time. The ballet was absolutely wonderful and Sharon Wehner was outstanding! I could have watched her dance all night. The Opera House is a great venue.

The Denver Performing Arts Center (DPAC) is visually beautiful and historic. I am a Colorado native and I am proud of this venue and am always amazed at the plays, musicals and other performances that happen here. I make a point to attend at least 3-4 shows a year because they are so enjoyable. There is convenient parking attached so... More

What a great place! Small theater in the huge performing arts complex. We had a great experience and will most definitely return. If you love theater and art this is a place you NEED to go!

Several months ago I found out that Phantom of the Opera was again coming to Denver. As my wife adores this musical getting seats was a must. I seen shows in a number of different places over the years, from small black box theaters to 3,000 seat opera houses. I have to say the Buell was a great experience. Parking... More

This review is for the Denver Performing Arts Complex (the Denver Center for the Performing Arts is an organization and tenant within this complex). An excellent complex with modern amenities and access-friendly. There are theatres of varying sizes, a concert hall and opera house. Restaurants onsite and right across 14th Street. 16th Street Mall with all of its bars and... More

This is the gem of Denver! The Buell alway have great plays sometimes straight from Broadway. It is worth going to one while you are in town or even if you live here. My Mom and I try to see at least four plays a year. We recently saw Beautiful the story of Carole King's life. The music, costumes, and... More

We have now seen our fifth performance at The Buell Theater and I can say it is one of the best venues I've ever experienced for the performing arts. You hear frequently the tired adage "there are no bad seats in this theater", applied to many different venues around the world, but this is truly the case for the Buell.... More
