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

Over the past few years I have attended several operas and ballets. The seating was arranged for a group so my particular location was not self chosen. The performances were enjoyable in spite of the fact that there are some locations that are troublesome. I was told by a box office person that some seats in rows, R,S,T are lower... More

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
