Never been here before? You might think the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater Mesa (The Palms Theatre) is not your "cup of tea." You’d rather watch TV, walk the dog, etc. Well this place grows on you.
For a fun dinner show replacement try the Arizona Opry Dinner Show.
Let me ask you this, have you ever heard a tune and wondered where it came from? Have you ever wondered about some of the titles of plays and what they were all about?
Aida. What is that all about?
Singing in the Rain is easy, but Aida?
It's fun to experience live theater and then you can discover what the story is about. And sometimes it takes more than one time too. I remember the play Les Miserables and couldn’t figure out what was going on until I saw the movie.
Most of the time it’s easy to follow along and enjoy. The surprises are delightful. Like when you hear a familiar tune and now you know the play where it came from!
The Broadway Palm TOP 10 shows have been:
1. Fiddler on the Roof
2. Show Boat
3. Gypsy Rose
4. South Pacific
5. Annie Get Your Gun
6. Singin' in the Rain

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Can you judge a play by its title?
You could be in for a pleasant surprise. Some of the most enjoyable plays at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater were the "Patsy Cline Story" and "The Full Monty." You be the judge. And you never know...
Start your evening out right with dinner starting with salad, hot main courses, and then dessert. Ahem, even the sugar free pies are mighty enticing! Dinner is optional too. You can come just for the play and sit in a chair instead of a table, ticket prices are lower without the dinner option.
When you settle into your table with your friends and family the excitement begins. Around 8pm, the play starts. Some actors will make announcements. Does anyone in your party have a birthday or anniversary?
The play starts and there is one intermission. The experience ends around 10pm or shortly thereafter.
Here's the best part. You just spent a delightful evening with what we call “quality time.” Beats the TV sleeping pill every time.
If you get there early you can retire to the bar area for some adult beverages. There also is a comfortable waiting room by the ticket office.
