What a show. Performers were outstanding, the show 50 shades of Shadowbox was great mix between comedy sketch, adult jokes (insinuated) & band performance. We will come back for other shows. Thank you for the laughter and great performance

I was introduced to Shadowbox Live 3 1/2 years ago when a friend couldn't use her lunchbox show tickets. It just so happened to be my boyfriends birthday. We went and enjoyed the show and have been hooked ever since. The actors and actresses work hard to put on effortless shows while the band rocks the house! Shadowbox live not... More

Have wanted to try this for many years, but don't get to Columbus all that often. Finally got there and really enjoyed it. The staff is extremely friendly, energetic and hard-working. The check-in process sounded confusing, but was nothing to worry about. I like the venue itself; it's roomy and easy to navigate and the restrooms easily handle the intermission... More

I have been coming here for years and they do such a good job. Great value too. They do a good job on the food. I come for dinner before the show. Very good service. The performer are the servers and cooks. Check it out.

I have been going to Shadowbox for 20 years. Much more in my 20's. I hadn't been to the new location as it had been awhile. This how still never ceases to disappoint. The music is amazing.

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!
