The new revamped ZACH theater is just darn comfy. Not a bad seat in the house, plenty of leg room, a nice stage (and great acoustics). Best of all, during SXSW it's one of my absolute favorite places to see films for it's excellent screen and audio quality and available parking.

Z Scott does what it can. I saw The Drowsy Chaperone and Spring Awakening there (I can't remember the other ones) a year ago. What you see performed is a crapshoot, depending on where you're sitting, how the action was directed, and if you can make out the stuff happening in the wings, because the wings are kind of like everywhere. People will come in from backstage, offstage, frontstage, cheetah stage: every possible stage. The layout can be distracting.

The most professional theatre here in Austin. The sets for every show I've seen is beautiful. The acting is phenomenal. The selections of seasons are always a draw, They have such a variety. Their education program is SO GOOD. By far, the best summer theatre camp I've ever attended. This place is high quality. I recommend trying to be a part of this theatre in any way you can.

Full disclosure: I have worked closely with the ZACH staff for the past few years as a Theater Manager for the venue during the SXSW film festival. I have had nothing but a great experience with them, and have found them to be friendly, helpful, and level-headed even in stressful situations. However, I'll be reviewing the venue from my perspective as a theater-goer, having caught ZACH's production of "Les Miserables" back in October. Having worked with the theater before, I was curious about what a theatrical production there would be like, and both my boyfriend and I were impressed on all counts. First off, the ZACH's Topfer Theater is just a gorgeous venue. The building's facade, lobby, and lounge spaces are all sleek and modern without being imposing, as is the 420-seat theater. Inside, the acoustics are great, and the seats are plush, roomy, and comfortable. Any theatrical company can be hit-or-miss, and I'm writing this review based on only one production, but from that experience, I was very impressed. To be honest, local theater productions can sometimes seem a little amateurish, but the vocals, acting quality, set design, and direction on "Les Miserables" were all hugely impressive and very affecting. As I commented to my boyfriend afterwards, I felt that some of the performances I saw at ZACH were more impressive than the Hollywood A-listers in the film version! (Certainly some of the vocals were more on-key!) I know that ZACH produces a wide range of events, ranging from musicals like this one, to children's productions, to touring one-man (and -woman) shows. Tickets are quite affordable, ranging from $25-$70 for a seat. Unfortunately, I do not make it out to the theater as often as I would like, but with ZACH making the experience available and accessible to everyone, I have no excuse not to venture out for more shows. ZACH Theater is a fantastic resource for our community, and I will definitely be heading back.

Such an amazing experience! The live theatre is positively phenomenal! ZACH has stepped it up with their brand new Topfer theatre! The new bars are excellent, the bartenders are awesome and the space itself is something to be in awe of. I highly recommend this theatre! Les Miserables is the 2013 season opener!

The Zach Theatre is a great place to go to watch live performers and real acting skill when you get bored of your zero plotline and flashy explosions hollywood movies. This is a place to appreciate the skills of the performers and to lose yourself in the story that they unravel around you. A place to take a date, a friend or family to enjoy the mysteries of the theatre.
