I am looking to purchase a digital camera for photographing live theatre performances. Looking for best capture of what is actually seen on stage.

The best is going to be a high end nikkon or a Canon 5kmk2. Low light performance will be your greatest need. After that, a lens with a large aperture, like f1.8 or 1.4.

If your close enough, a Canon 85mm 1.4 isn't a bad or hugely expensive endeavor.
