Being a native Californian I have also sampled the theater offerings of San Francisco, Los Angeles and even in the gold rush towns of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. But having spent the... More

I've seen an operatic version of Streetcar Named Desire, Cloris Leachman Show, Emmylou Harris, Children's Theatre, Comedy... I'd have to thin hard to remember all the great shows I've attended. The Gallo director is very innovative, and a lovely... More

Gallo is the place to go for live performances. Our granddaughter performs here frequently. BUT, any performance is great to see there. No matter what seat in the house you have, the view of the stage is superb. Acoustics are great. You will NOT be disappointed here at all!

Modesto long lacked a real venue, this place more than filled that void. The Gallo Center is gorgeous. There are no bad seats. We have attended several events since its opening and can't wait for the next one!

I have been to the Gallo now about a dozen times. We have seen great plays there. My favorite was Memphis. It was back in the 40's when black people could not enter a white neighborhood. It is a must see for every generation. Not only for the History but to understand the racist element that was back in the... More

1st time I went to the Gallo was to see Huey Lewis and the News back in 2014 I believe. I have since been back to see Rock Concerts, Joan Jett, The Monkees, Comedy Steven Wright and Blues to name a few. Sound is great and I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.
