DCPA BROADWAY
We bring the biggest, brightest and best Broadway shows straight from New York to entertain audiences of all ages and interests. Perfect for a special occasion, date night or just to say you were there.

The biggest and most entertaining musicals in New York are transplanted to Denver by our Broadway group at DCPA. We've hosted national touring premieres like Pippin and The Book of Mormon, the pre-Broadway debut of Disney's The Little Mermaid and international blockbusters like The Phantom of the OperaWicked and The Lion King. Best of all, our favorites come back year after year because Denver is known by Broadway producers to have the best audiences and the best setting to showcase an extravaganza.

Our team, led by John Ekeberg, is excited to bring the thrill and energy of the big Broadway musicals to the Rocky Mountain region, with more than 475 hits and counting.

 

To steal from Wicked, we’re “popular." We’ve not only hosted Tony Award-winning shows with headline stars, but also have become a “pick city” on the touring circuit.
