“love it”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I travelled to Joffrey from Ohio. Worth the trip. The theatre itself is beautiful, although in need of refurbishing. The Joffrey is a wonderful ballet company. I attended a Saturday evening show wiith my three kids, La Bayadere. It was very good, but would have been better with seats closer to the stage for the kids to see all the expressions of the dancers. I would choose a matinee show another time if with the kids.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

As always, this ballet gives an outstanding performance. I suggest the Nutcracker while in the city at Christmas-time.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Took our three granddaughters to see The Nutcracker. The dancing, orchestra, and theater are all excellent. Our granddaughter were enthralled with the performance. It was an unforgettable experience for all of us!

“First dance with 'real' ballet”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

After having taken ballet for years as a child I've been burned out on ballet. La Bayadere, however, interested me and I went to see it. I was impressed by the dancing and amazed by the audience. The story of the ballet was printed in the handout and helped with the storyline. It was a marvelous afternoon at the ballet, the Auditorium Theater was lovely too.
