Other Broadway Venues in Denver

To give its full name, the Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre in fact used to be used as a sports ground, with a telltale scoreboard hanging from its large rafters. Opened in 1981, it forms a major part of the DPAC which revitalized performing arts in the Denver, CO area since the Eighties. Today its high-tech facilities allow for the top Broadway shows and independent productions to be performed here to sell-out crowds.

It delivers everything the audiences can hope for - lots of sexy dancing and plenty of rock 'n' roll!
