I love GEVA - been there several times

Probably depends on what's playing at the time, but the plays are always well-performed, well-staged and the building is a fun place to watch live theatre.

The show tackles a tough topic, but it was handled with skill, eliciting both... More

I recently attended a college event at the newly renovated GEVA theater, the new decor is beautiful. The buffet meal was scrumptious and the play was hilarious with class.

Heard a lot about the new renovations, with the expanded kitchen and bar. Can't comment too much on the kitchen, as all we got was a cannoli (which was very good), but the bar was better before. The 4 people they had behind the bar were slower than the 2 that they used to have, and the pours were INCREDIBLY... More

Shows here are very nice and because it is a smaller venue, it is a nice intimate showing. Local restaurants are also very close by.

I have been a season ticket holder for many years. Geva is a wonderful theater that has been recently renovated. The seats are comfortable and there is good viewing from every seat in the house. The plays have been terrific. The actors are professionals and the sets are outstanding.

I've had a subscription to GEVA since 1977 and have never had a disappointing year. The shows keep getting better and better. Professional casts really provide great experiences for theater goers of all ages. Newly renovated, the theater is spectacular.

Honestly, any place you sit in the main theatre is a great seat in terms of seeing, hearing, and feeling an intimate connection with whatever is happening onstage. It's a remarkable theatre experience, with outstanding sets and costumes for each performance. The acting is always superb, and the productions each season represent a broad spectrum of experiences -- amusing, entertaining,... More

As a long-time season ticket holder, Geva Theater delights with its choice of plays, actor/actress selection and the sets! They are not locked into offering just one type of play. The seats are comfortable.The ushers are quite good at getting people to their seats. The sets are just amazing - a complete surprise for the quality and detail. They offer... More
