I'm very suprised for it being such a quaint small crowd venue that the theater itself is not more beautifully decorated on the inside. When you walk in, all you'll see is a two color scheme wall that closely resembles that of a solitary confinement cell in a nut-house. This place has so much more potential and I think would...

We've been to the Stranahan many times, but never when it was as full as for "The Book of Mormon." I ran to the ladies room at intermission to avoid long lines, and was tickled to see at least four attendants ushering women in and out as stalls opened up. I was back in my seat in no time!

Stairs can be an issue for anyone who has walking disability. There is no elevator how ever the staff did advise they have handicap seating if needed. Have seen many different shows here and never had... More

Stranahan has many great shows and it is a wonderful venue. It is small enough that there are no bad seats in the house and it has great acoustics. They also have bar service in the lobby before many of the performances and also at intermission which is a nice plus.

This theater is in an easily accessible location with restaurants nearby. My friends and I have season tickets and usually go to lunch before the Sunday matinee. The plays shown have ranged from awesomely great to terrible, but most of the productions have been pretty good. The season ticket prices aren't bad. My biggest complaint about this theater is that... More

The big band sound was great. I have enjoyed the Toledo symphony last year and this time the Big Band. Never been disappointed with what they do here.

The performance of Boyz II Men with The Toledo Symphony was amazing - a great blend of modern and classical music. I do wish that the seats at the Stranahan Theater were more comfortable and the acoustics were better.
