The Denver Center For The Performing Arts - Review
Theatre, musicals, cabaret and schooling for it all - that's what you'll find at this arts complex. Hosting shows popular on the Broadway, plays that win the Tony, and the odd concert, this venue has ten performance spaces with over 10,000 seats. You could also book a space for weddings or business meetings (at Seawell Grand Ballroom). But obviously the main attractions are the shows themselves. It's kind of nice how you get to see a wide range of talent, particularly when the students put up a show. With hundred of events every year, the center is always good for a night out. Check their online calendar for upcoming shows. The backstage tours are highly informative. This is the country's the largest not-for-profit theatre organization.

The Denver Center For The Performing Arts, Denver Reviews
Have been waiting for the Book of Mormon for months, when we ordered the tickets we requested Friday, for the tickets went tonight and sadly the tickets were for the wrong night. My mom started to cry, I went to the box office and said we made a terrible mistake. The rudest lady said to us “ well you can buy another set I asked her if they could do anything for the $290 we paid. She said sorry last nights show is no value to us. Wow!!!! No class I will never see a show here again. The Boulder Theatre is better anyway and the people have heart.
Must see a show here! I have been to shows on broadway in NY and DCPA puts on just as good of a show! The facility itself is beautiful and easy to get in and out of for shows. Get on their mailing list and get yourself down there for a night on the town, you won't be disappointed!
I've been visiting DCPA since I was a little girl and have always looked forward to the day I could afford season tickets. This year was the year, and it has been a wonderful decision. They bring great shows with a lot of variety every season. Beyond that, yes the wait times for the box office are longer around busy sales days (duh!) but every person I've dealt with at the box office has been incredibly friendly, helpful, and patient. This consistent service has been a wonderful surprise. Also, of course parking can be time consuming but you just have to plan for that, Uber, or take public transit (plus, it's really not that bad... no more than 20ish minutes; you'll spend more time getting down Blake on a Rockies game day). The few negative reviews crack me up - "I didn't get tickets to this show that literally everyone wanted tickets to"...um yeah, nothing is guaranteed it's called supply and demand or "I bought tickets and couldn't attend because of a choice I made, and they didn't bend over backwards to fix my problem for me" ... what if you scored Broncos tickets and then had other plans come up, do you expect they refund you or give you tickets to another game? They'd rightfully laugh in your face, that's a you problem.
Notice all the positive ratings are about the actual productions. Now notice how bad every rating is that mentions the box office or DCPA's ticketing policies. Do with that information what you will.
Bought tickets to Book of Mormon 4mos in advance. Within those 4mos a family wedding was scheduled a day before the show in S.Carolina and I was required to attend. I was informed by DCPA that I could not reschedule without upgrading as all equivalently priced tickets were sold out. I scheduled a red eye flight the night of the wedding so I could make it in time. I left an hour after the evening reception (1am, no sleep that night) just so I could be back in DIA 5 hours before the show (didn't want to take any chances). Unfortunately American Airlines decides to stop functioning that day and I was put through 5 hours of delays. When my plane finally touched down in Denver I hurriedly called DCPA to inform them I couldn't make it. To avoid waiting for 30m for an operator and possibly missing the 2pm start time I left a message as I was exiting my plane. A day later and no calls back I called DCPA and was informed I could exchange my tickets for an upgraded ticket and pay the difference as all equally priced seats had sold out for the rest of the season. I ended the call to ask my wife if the date and price agreed with her. She agreed and I called back to pay the difference. Suddenly, DCPA decided I was SOL and that I would have to buy new tickets, no matter my situation or what I had previously been told, nothing we can do for you. I used to be involved in the theatre scene, but never delved into Denver's for a lot of reasons, mostly because the theater here prices out anyone who isn't *rich* and *white*. I'll just add another reason to the list. Thanks, DCPA, I'll never try this again. Enjoy my hard earned money.
