After CarnegieHall, this has got to be one of the most beautiful and amazing Performibg Arts Centre in the country. Its a huge place, nearly 4 city blocks and houses multiple theatres with the biggest one hosting many Broadway type shows, and some even being performed first time before it makes it to NewYork broadway. Check out their show schedule... More

My husband and I have been to DCPA numerous times and have seen shows in most of the theaters. This afternoon we saw Beautiful: The Carol King Show and as always the individuals taking the tickets and seating everyone were kind and friendly. The Buell Theater was clean and everything was on time. Again it was another excellent Broadway quality... More

Have watched plays here for years and loved the quality. My Daughter participated in the High School Summer Intensive and learned so much, both theatrically and in personal confidence. Highly recommend!

Went there for the GALA Chorus Festival with 6500 other people! We used 4 of the performance venues in the complex and they were all great. The Ellie Caulkins Opera House was particularly incredible for the great acoustics!

I had the opportunity to sing at two of the venues at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts recently. What an amazing complex right in the heart of downtown Denver. And the venues that make up the center are real treats to perform in and to view live shows in. Denver is lucky to have such a complex!

We have been subscribers for the Broadway Musicals for several years and love it. For our date night which is on Wednesdays..we take the train which drops us off a block away from the theater so we don't have to hassle with parking..... go to dinner and have a great evening enjoying the musicals. The majority of the productions are... More

I have ordered tickets over the years for performances at this venue, sometimes as a subscriber and others as a basic ticket purchaser. When the website works, it works really well. When it's overloaded, and you have to call the box office, it also works very well. These people know how to do customer service. I had tickets to Sweeney... More

Had the opportunity to visit the theatre. Purchasing tickets was easy, once I found the box office...some renovations were being done and signage nor persons with knowledge of what was happening in place. However the play Newsies was wonderful and i would recommend it to everyone as it is appropriate for all ages

Comfortable theater. Disappointed in seats. We saw Frankie Valli.He had two video clips one before the show one during and we were unable to see half the screen from our seats. No warning of partial view was stated during the purchase process. The performance was sold through AEG and I didn't care for how that worked. You could only pick... More

We attended a medical school graduation at the Opera House. It is a beautiful facility, and a perfect venue for this kind of event BUT the air conditioning was NOT up to the challenge. It got uncomfortably warm on a very warm, but not ultra hot day!! This is a MODERN building - if it was a historic building that... More
