We have seen multiple performances here including Blue Man Group and Wicked and we love the balcony! For our latest adventure we didn't have balcony seats - they were still perfect! We also ate at the onsite restaurant and the food was excellent!

My daughter and I attended Dirty Dancing at this venue. It was our first musical and will not be our last! The singing, dancing, and venue were absolutely beautiful!!

As a group of nine girlfriends we went to see Dirty Dancing this past month. We were seated in the fourth balcony, second row back. The view was good, but it was difficult to see expressions.

Really nice place to see a show or music concert. All seats have great views of the stage. Not so big that you have a hard time seeing or hearing. The sound quality is really good. Hands down, the best venue in Dayton to see a show.

A beautiful theater with great accoustics. Do be aware, though, that if have an issue with heights you will likely want to stay in orchestra or mezzanine. There are several levels of balcony and they are very high up!

In the heart of Downtown, The Schuster presents a beautiful theater experience. Shows vary throughout the year, from symphonies to pop concerts to children's programming. Seating is comfortable, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Citlities is a nice on-site dining option.
