What a wounderful experience. Just visiting the Palace was an experience in itself. The staff was friendly and attentive, the temperature of the theater was very comfortable. What can I say about Louis Black, he delivered as expected. Nothing like using the facts about the political environment and discussing them in a way the is most entertaining!

I really like the Palace. As far as visibility I have never had a bad seat, no matter where I'm seated. However, I've been to a few shows where the sound was really bad. Most recently, Lewis Black. The sound was tinny and hard to hear until the last 10 minutes of the show when somebody must have flipped a... More

While visiting Ohio over Thanksgiving, we attended A Christmas Carol at the Palace Theater. It is a very nice older theater that is pretty large. We took our 2 younger nephews and our family. We were pleasantly surprised that our 6 year old nephew was mesmerized by the play. Quality performance and a reasonable price.

My first visit at this venue and was very nice clean and organized, they were well staffed to provide the attendees with assistance getting to their seats locations also as a Latin concert the public got very excited and started getting closer to the VIP section and the selfies with the singer as a background were literally right and left...

Awesome showplace for central Ohio! The Palace is a beautiful and historic showplace, and makes any show there even better. Highly recommend for any venue.

I have visited the Palace Theater many times both as a performer and audience member. Excellent acoustics, comfortable seating and lovely architecture. Ample parking nearby. Staff always(with one notable exception) both friendly and accommodating. I shall return

We visited this in may for a concert. This was built in the 1927. It's very well maintained and there is pictures downstairs by the restrooms with some of the people that performed there over the years. The detail of the inside is really amazing. There is a parking garage right behind the building that will give you easy access.... More

Very nice venue for live theater. Saw Mama Mia in March 2015. The sound was great as were the seats. The theater is easy to get in and out of, and there is plenty of parking close to the theater.

Thank cypresskatie
