My friend and I went to the Shadowbox for a line up of female stand-up comedy. The venue is clean, airy, spacious, and it seemed every seat in the house was good. Service was attentive and quick, and the food was very satisfying pub food. The menu is sandwiches, pizza, and appetizers. We had a lot of laughs from a... More

We really LOVE going to Shadowbox Live! So much talent. All the shows and music are the best you will find, anywhere. The performers can sing, dance, act, they also work at doing everything, like, waiting on tables, carrying food, taking care of all the customers. They are really hard workers. They are much more talented than people you see... More

I will tell everyone I know to boycott Shadowbox because of racist habits. The racist jokes centered around the confederate flag were not even funny. Shame on you!

After a splendid meal at the Arepazo Tapas Bar Grille (see my review) in the German Village section of Columbus, Ohio, my date and I walked a few blocks West to the Brewery District to Shadowbox Live. Because we arrived a little before their 7:30 PM show time, we stopped at their bar to get a few pre-show cocktails. I... More

Shadowbox provides some of the best live theater in Columbus. With a large resident company and a wonderfully adapted space, the entertainment here is of the highest level. The food is OK, basically pub food to keep you full during the show. The bar is very well stocked and the servers are usually the performers, so you know you'll have... More

This is an absolute "MUST SEE" if you are a Pink Floyd fan. History of Syd Barrett put to music of The Wall and other favorites with mind blowing video acting and dance. PLUS a version of Dark Side of the Moon with Wizard of Oz video, dancing, etc. Couldnt have imagined this in my wildest dreams. Food is great,... More

My wife and her friends went to celebrate a bachelorette party and had a good time, the comedy was R rated and she had a good time. The drinks were good and they all really enjoyed themselves.
