This was an early show in this run of the Nutcracker. There were some dancer errors. However, the show was great. I always love hearing the symphony. This theater is a very, very nice place and the whole family loves coming here. There are places to eat and have a drink close. This theater should be a must visit place... More

When in Columbus, if you have an opportunity to visit The Ohio Theater, it will not disappoint. The theater was saved during the 70's when Urban Sprawl was rampaged. We are lucky to have one of the 5 mighty Mortan organs left in the world. Clark Wilson, our resident organist headlines the theater while traveling the world. The Ohio was... More

Saw the Nebraska Theatre Caravan's "A Christmas Carol" in this beautiful theater. The acoustics are great. The seats were comfy and there is actually leg room. The restoration work is fabulous.

I attended the production of "A Christmas Carol" at this theater today. It was the first time I have ever been at this theater. What a wondrous sight! Every detail, every nook and cranny, every space was an architectural beauty. From the finishes on the walls and ceiling to that amazing chandelier with the gorgeous light, this theater is a...

Oh, so beautiful. I always enjoy going to a performance here and get the feel of a by-gone era. Too bad there is no way to add more restrooms.

The Ohio Theater, a landmark in Columbus, continues to inspire people to new heights through productions such as the Lion King. The venue is a perfect place for stage productions as well as to the hear performances of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. The interior architecture is amazing and a must see. Enjoy!

Just visited this place for my wife's Bar swearing in ceremony. The theater and the building are very cool and the view from any seat seems pretty good.

A trip to Columbus is incomplete without a visit to the Ohio Theater. A National Historic Landmark designed by notable theater architect Thomas W. Lamb, is host to many modern day performances and groups. While national shows perform in Columbus, some of the best entertainment opportunities result from local collaborations with the Columbus Symphony, BalletMet, and local food artisans such... More
