I and my work peers went here today for an end of year team outing. The food was excellent. It was a private buffet with a good variety of mostly healthy food options. Obviously the portions were perfect since it was buffet style. The entertainment followed and was probably a PG13 rating. With the Christmas holiday themed "lunchbox", there were... More

This brewery district gem knocks it out of the park with every performance. The house band is fabulous, backing up some really great vocal work. The comedy sketches are original and fresh. Best part is the price. You can't get better entertainment cheaper.

We have seen several shows at Shadowbox. Edgy comedy skits and great music. Good food and drink. 1st timers get special attention.

I went on November 9 and didn't know what to expect. I was captivated! Whether you are an arts aficionado or not, you will find this to be a totally original, unique experience. They take works of art from the Columbus Museum of Art and explain their meanings though original music and dance. This show would make a bundle of... More

We frequent the Shadowbox. The live band, BillWho, rocks it out. The sketches can be of adult nature as can the language, this is not for the closed minded, rather a great time relatively inexpensive and it the best few hours you'll spend with either your special one, or with a group since the tables seat 8. Parking was good,... More

I am sure that am probably in the minority regarding my experience at Shadowbox Live based on other reviews. The introduction, show and other parts of the experience were frankly “crass.” It could be that I’m just not into the type of approach and humor used at the Shadowbox Live. I think the actors and singers had a lot of... More

We were in town for a surprise party which was at The Shadowbox. Not sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised and had the best time! All of the actors/musicians also wait on your table for food/drinks, so we got to meet one of them as we ordered food, and she was so great about telling us all... More

The play/show was great, but skip the food and alcohol, it's awful, overpriced, and a total racket. The performers are really good, they're trying to get started as actors, but seriously skip the consumables.....

I first attended Shadowbox shows when they were a small theater troupe off Spring St. I loved the shows, and I was always anxious for the next show they produced. I was in my 30s and I enjoyed their material and talent. The actors work as the wait staff before, during, and at the end of the show. I haven't... More
