This is a really lively place on a Sunday even at mid day. The complex is impressive and seems like a great idea to cluster a few theaters in one place with a good location. There are also cafes and restaurants, places to sit and walk. The whole place seems like a lively temple of art.

The DCTC is one subscription we make a priority. The shows are well-produced, the actors high-quality, the selection of shows in a season is entertaining, challenging, funny, sad and heartwarming all at once. The theaters are comfortable with great seats, easy parking downtown at any number of garages or lots, and easy walk to dozens of restaurants for before- or... More

My wife and I live in downtown Denver, a block away from the DCPA complex; one of the main reasons we moved there was to have convenient and frequent access to the Denver Center Theater Company performances. They are excellent, and do a remarkable job in consistently delivering great performances.

One of the best theater companies in the United States - hands down. I have never seen a poor production here - usually see a couple a year. Some of them have been quite memorable. Affordable, quality entertainment. There is just no substitute for live theater.

I love visiting the arts center in downtown Denver. The city offers great theatrical productions, operas, and above all, the Boettcher music center for classical music and the like. Everything so is accessible and marvelous. My only regret is sometimes it is difficult to park, but Denver remains a "growing city."

Small venue. Very intimate; lots of interaction w/cast if that's the kind of show presented. Very polished presentations.

Get season tickets if you can. The Buell is one of the best facilities outside NYC -- maybe as good as or better than some. There are also several smaller theaters in the complex that have shows, also a treat to go to.

A great complex located in the heart of downtown, 2 blocks from the 16th street mall and the Free shuttle. The Denver Center usually has several touring shows during their season, plus a local company that has multiple quality productions. Also accessible by light rail if you are staying away from the downtown area.

You can't go round with Denver Center Theatre Company. Always a treat, I enjoy these shows immensely and a trip to the Denver Performing Arts Center is a wonderful event in itself. Do yourself a favor and see a show!

Good shows that are well done. The facilities are well kept and generally the performances are worth the prices of admission.
