What better way to spend a rainy Saturday night then being entertained at Shadowbox Live in the Short North area of Columbus, The show is a no stop evening of music, laughs, and food. The food staff is great and the food is better than expected! WE had a great time enjoying the great talent that is highlighted at Shadowbox!... 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.

Like your comedy a little R rated and like a few drinks this is the place for you, try to eat somewhere else food is pedestrian, only the pizza is safe

We came to the Shadowbox on Saturday to see Sex at the Box. We have enjoyed every one of the sketch comedies we have seen. The staff are friendly and very organized. The shows are laugh out loud funny. I would recommend the Shadowbox to anyone with a good sense of humor.

Shadowbox Live is known for its Unique performance-arts venue & cafe staging rock musicals & sketch comedies in daytime & evening. We have been to many of their performances and love the "Saturday Nite Live" type of comedy in their sketches. They offer unique food - always good- but the fun part is that the wait staff is made up... More

Excellent service - waiters, greeters, table runners, are all members of the cast, which is really cool. Very friendly, and helpful. Food was quickly served after being ordered. Limited menu choices for those looking for healthier options - menu available on web site. Talented performers - actors, actresses, musicians all quite talented Clean facility

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
