The name doesn't lie?located in Salt Lake City, The Off Broadway Theatre is about as far from The Great White Way as you can get. But geography hasn't stopped the space from staging New York-caliber classic musicals and original comedies for nearly 20 years. The auditorium rings with laughter during beloved productions such as Little Shop of Horrors and The Pirates of Penzance, and house-written parodies including The Adventures of Sheer-Luck Homes and Snotson , The X-Mas Men, and Dracula vs. any number of monsters once portrayed by Boris Karloff. Audience members get the chance to join in on the hilarity during interactive sets from the resident jokesters of the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe.

Visitors to the Utah Arts Festival stride across concrete promenades and grassy lawns sprawled out between fountains and modern buildings, which have glass walls that reflect the fest’s vibrant paintings and eclectic sculptures. Since its inception more than 35 years ago, the four-day festival has taken over a multiblock radius to accommodate hundreds of visual artists, musicians, performers, and culinary artists, each celebrating modern art and the local community. Throughout indoor and outdoor exhibitions, visitors explore varied works of visual art represented through special exhibitions and hands-on workshops with featured artists. A marketplace also gives artists a place to sell their paintings, wearable art, and sculptures to help disseminate their crafts and raise enough money for van Gogh’s ghost to move out of their basements.

Musicians score the festival throughout its days with worldwide genres on several outdoor stages, and storytellers and other literary artists tickle ears with eclectic tales and recitations of the UN staff directory. Across the grounds, festival staffers recycle the fete’s discarded plastic, aluminum, and cardboard as well as food scraps and vegetable oil, and promote eco-friendly practices with a protected bicycle lot and bike valet.

With 26 seasons under their belt, The Children's Theatre strives to inspire kids to express their creativity through entertaining, educational performances. Children stare as live performers act out the The Brave Little Tailor, an ancient Brothers Grimm fairy tale that reflects on modern troubles with a gentle lesson about bullying. In the story, a tailor strikes out into the world, only to run into a passing giant, who challenges the tailor to feats of strength such as squeezing water from a boulder or not crying while watching Brian's Song. Seating in the intimate, 99-person theater is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open a half-hour before performances so that audience members can snag spots in the front row or on a ticket taker's shoulders.
