The only equity theatre in Rochester, Geva has been oustanding for decades. I'm not the regular season subscriber that I used to be but that doesn't stop me from going downtown to visit several times a year and enjoy great performances. I'm not always the...More

Geva Theatre gave our opening night tickets (seats we bought for the whole season) away to local "celebrities" and government officials on their opening night. No warning, no explanation...except the obvious - we weren't important enough. We'd supported Geva for ages as it struggled along...More

Geva is a great place to see plays and even musicals. We attended HAIR and while the musical is dated, the performers were exceptional. Our only criticism was the intense loudness of the sound system. Often the high decibels drown out the words and it...More

This is a great little theater! We are lucky to have a theater in Rochester that brings so many great plays! It is always a fun time. The plays are diverse and bring cultural interesting shows.

What a place, all seats are good. The clients and staff were amazingly gracious with our fairly loud young ladies. We had an amazing time and everyone cried. The actors are incredible.
