My husband and I had an annual subscription to all the shows of each season. The shows are great and the seating in the theatre is outstanding. There is enough leg room for me (I have leg issues) and all seats have great views. My husband will not let us subscribe to any other local theatre.

Hadn't been to Geva in many years, recently attended with friends. Very impressed with the venue - spacious, bright and clean. You're really up close and personal with the performers. Plenty of parking available as well. A wonderful way to spend an evening.

I have been a season ticket holder for several years. This is one of the best theater experiences in Rochester. It's a well run organization that is very professional. The director assures that there are new plays blended with classic ones. Many of the actors come from New York City. The space is intimate so all seats are great. Comfortable... More

I love the shows at the GEVA Theatre. They have a great variety of themes, the productions are always top notch and what they do with the stage is always a surprise. We always enjoy a bite to eat before the show in the cafe. Parking right across the street makes for easy access to the venue, which is easy... More

Even if you never attended Catholic grammer school, attending GEVA'S presentation of "Will My Bunny Go To Heaven?" will be an entertaining experience. Sister Late Night usually shares her version of the scriptures before Christmas, but this year we were treated to an Easter lesson. As always, it was wonderful, insightful most of all so funny! It does a body... More

We have season tickets and enjoy most of the plays. Last two seasons had original plays placed in Buffalo and was enjoyable. Gera offers light fare before show and had bar. Look forward to next season. They also offer next stage, but have not attended recent events there, smaller groups. No elevator to balcony handicap available first floor only.

I subscribe to Geva, and have been a subscriber for many years. My wife and I always enjoy ourselves when we attend a play there. The acting is very good, the sets of decent quality, and the plays well chosen. The Improv in the small theater is a bit spotty.

I have been going to GEVA Theatre for decades and like a fine wine it only gets better with age. Geva presents a diverse offering every year on its two stages. I've been impressed the national actors that it attracts for its productions along with regional talent. The plays cover a range from classics to new off-Broadway; light and humorous... More
