3 Best Performing Arts Venues in Sacramento, Sacramento and the Gold Country

The Sofia

Midtown Fodor's choice

The long-running B Street Theatre—known for well-staged comedies, dramas, the occasional farce, and productions for children—is the resident company at this industrial-suave performing arts center. The two theaters, plus three rehearsal spaces for workshop productions, also present musicians, solo acts, and speakers.

Broadway Sacramento


This group presents shows like Hamilton, Annie, and Les Misérables at two Downtown venues.

Crest Theatre


It's worth peeking inside the Crest even if you don't catch a show, just to see the foyer's swirling art deco design or dine at the Empress Tavern. The theater's a beloved venue for classic and art-house films, concerts, and other events.
