Pioneer Memorial Theatre
Salt Lake's major regional theatre is located appropriately enough at the top of Broadway (300 South) and 1400 East. A fully professional theatre in residence at the University of Utah, Pioneer Theatre Company produces a seven-play season running from September through May, including a mixture of classics, large-scale musicals and contemporary dramas and comedies. Over the past ten years the theatre has developed a reputation for Broadway-quality productions, particularly in its mounting of major musicals such as Into the Woods, Man of La Mancha, Cabaret and Fiddler on the Roof as well as classics and adaptations like The Three Musketeers, A Tale of Two Cities, Peer Gynt and The Grapes of Wrath. The theatre has also been the first in Utah to produce important works by contemporary playwrights such as August Wilson's Fences, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, Herb Gardner's I'm Not Rappaport and Wendy Wasserstein's An American Daughter.
