Comerica Theatre

Originally called the Dodge Theatre when it opened in 2002, this 5,000-seat venue now bears the name Comerica Theatre. A member of the House of Blues and Live Nation family of theatres, it hosts touring music acts, comedy shows and an annual “Russian Nutcracker” production by the Moscow Ballet.

Set in downtown Phoenix, you can find parking at the nearby Adams Street Garage at 4th Ave. and Adams. You can purchase spots in advance for $10 through the box office.

Doors open an hour prior to the show, and the venue recommends arriving early. It holds a strict no-weapons policy and bans a number of other items as well for security reasons, so be sure to check the website before you arrive.

No matter what the show, everyone, including infants must possess a ticket.
