“Always something going on!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

There are several theaters next to each other. Quality productions. Some outstanding! Parking lot beside theaters (underground - costs $12). Restaurants near-by. Or walk farther for better restaurants.

“Large, impressive complex”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Although I cant stand the huge white dancers, the Denverites rightly have a lot of pride in the DCPA, which is one of the top 5 largest in the country and has some beautiful theaters, on par with Lincoln Center in terms of finish and scale.

“Terrific”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This complex is outstanding, multiple theatres from small intimate to over 2000 people. I have been going here for 20 years and not once have I been disappointed. The productions have all been outstanding, the acoutics excellent, attached parking garage helps a lot, with covered walkways, a delight to the eyes in design and friendly, helpful staff throughout.

Denver has professional baseball, football, soccer, hockey, basketball, etc. and add up all the attendance figures at the sports activities for a year and you will find more people in Denver attending the theatres.

“Love the theaters!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

The Buell Theater is lovely - comfortable and old style glamourous. Accoustics are excellent. I also have enjoyed shows at the smaller theaters too, one of whose name escapes me. We sat at cocktail tables a few feet from the stage at "For Girls Only". We really appreciated the theater-in-the-round for several shows at the Stage Theater, Denver has created a top quality center at DCPA!

“I LOVE DCPA”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Need I say more. An awesome experience always, for every show. Fun to dress up, kind of expensive so always wish I could go more often. Love the ambiance.
