Recently, we ran a story on Pioneer Theatre Company's new artistic director, Karen Azenberg, and A&E writer Dan Nailen just did a review of The Odd Couple at the theater. But we're not done selling Utah's most professional theater company to you yet.

Known for world-class performances, Pioneer Theatre is quintessential if you're going to call yourself a Utahn. 

Along with showing favorites like The Producers and 42nd Street, the theater started a new plays initiative in 2008, offering commissions to new playwrights. The theater was also the first in Utah to produce works like August Wilson's Fences and David Hare's The Vertical Hour. Azenberg says the theater easily matches the quality of San Diego's Old Globe and the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., but we recommend checking it out for yourself.

The Odd Couple shows through April 6, followed by Les Miserables, which shows May 3–June 1. Click here for tickets and more info.
