The Pioneer Center’s striking tortoise-shell exterior gets the attention of tourists in downtown Reno all on its own. But once inside, the Pioneer is more about another kind of visual treat: the fine arts. A big attraction every year is the Broadway Comes to Reno series, in which traveling theater companies present big shows from Broadway’s past and present. It’s also the primary venue for local orchestral groups and often books a wide range of lecturers, including notable authors and public radio personalities. Acts from the alternative music and folk scenes also play at the Pioneer.
