Nestled between the plains of the east and the mountains of the west, the metropolis of Denver offers a unique slice of theatre at 5,280 feet high. Housing the second largest performance space in the United States, the Buell Theatre (see Denver Center for the Performing Arts), the Mile High City is no stranger to culture, talent, and an amazing night of performance.
What separates Denver theatre from other big powerhouse cities like Los Angeles and New York is a sense of comfort and familiarity. Denver is the capital of the Rocky Mountain State, yes, but it sure feels more like a cozy small town with frosty covered mountain tops, breathtaking foliage, and inherent Colorado-politeness found in almost every native.
Art is the blood that flows through the heart of Denver, and the stage is no exception. Denver is proud to support every level of theatre, from the professional to the community. Whether performing in the Buell or performing in a rented space, each production is top quality, and an entertaining night of drama. Travelers who grace this quaint capital looking for enjoyable and inviting theatre will not be disappointed. (Bobbi Goldner)
