When traveling to big cities like New York and Los Angeles, Broadway shows and other performances are popular activities - equally exciting as sightseeing and dining at the best restaurants around town. Denver is home to one of the most beautiful and largest theater complexes in the country, home to the Colorado Ballet, Colorado Symphony and a combination of both local and traveling Broadway shows. Check out some of the upcoming performances we’re most excited about and be sure to make a reservation at The Nickel for a meal beforehand!
