“Great performances!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Geva is an excellent theatre. The acting and sets are always top notch; and because of its size, the view of the stage from your seat is usually excellent.

“Beautiful, intimate theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I recently had my first visit to Geva and what a pleasant experience. The theater is small, which makes it very intimate. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. The stage juts out into the theater giving a full view of the action. I saw "Midsummers Night Dream" and the quality of the performance was high. The costumes were beautiful.

There is a spacious, inviting cafe for light snacks or drinks.

The overall architecture has a historic feel with lots of arches and brickwork. Beautiful!

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I saw "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and thoroughly enjoyed it. The production company was excellent and the stage and props were very well done. The theater itself is beautiful. The seats were comfortable. There is a cafe where you can enjoy coffee, a pastry, or a light lunch before or after the show. I will definitely return for future productions.
