Have seen many shows here - most recently Chicago. Theater was very crowded this night and traffic around the theater was a nightmare but the show was great just the same.

On the good side, it's great that a historic theatre has been revived for contemporary shows. Although the blush is off the rose a bit on this restoration, it retains much of its glamour and opulence. However, the seating in much of the theatre is...More

My wife & I attended the performance of 'Chicago' on a Friday night. The theatre was crowded, likely due to the presence of Eddie George (hometown hero, ex-OSU & NFL running back) in one of the lead roles. The theatre is beautifully restored, the staff...More

Oh she's a grand old Dame! Age and beauty best describes this venue. Grand staircases, balconies, architecture, molding, and chandeliers. Sure there is some visible repair work that is not on the same scale as the original builder. It's still worth taking a moment before...More

Nice night. Beautiful theater and great shows. The venue is small and there is difficulty with restrooms and Concessions. Most importantly - NEVER park in adjacent garage. It will take an hour to get out.

I believe the best is the parking garage right behind the theater unfortunately it takes a while to get out of it when there is fairly large crowds. Pay for your parking before the show so you don’t have to wait in the lines... More
