The facilities are beautiful, performances first rate, and the atmosphere is beyond words. We had a lovely time! Top off your evening with a walk at Riverscape!

The Schuster Center is very nice. I have been many times. It is beautiful on the inside and out. Every seat in the house is good and the employees are super nice and courteous.

This place is very good to see Broadway plays at. The starting times are a little late during the week when you work the next day and the prices just a little on the high side.

Dayton's Gem! The center consistently offers excellent shows. They also offer a wide variety of shows to suit most performance tastes. They do offer handicap availability. The shows are usually extremely well attended and the only caution would be watch the steps as you are leaving because they are so full. Offers excellent seating and viewing. I can only afford...

The Schuster center is a hidden gem....Can't believe it took me so long to go see a show here. It's worth every penny you spend. A tip on parking though...if you use the parking garage back into it; it will be much easier when you leave.....

While still an avid fan and still impressed with the Victoria Theater of Dayton, the Benjamin & Marion Schuster Performing Arts Center is truly magnificent. In the past we had to go to the Cincinnati or Columbus for the big shows like Phantom or Le Miz. The Schuster is truly a gem in terms of construction-srchiticture, ambiance and terrific line...

As a newbie in Dayton, I'm certainly glad to see Dayton has such a beautiful theater. Having been to one of it's performances, It's rival a small Lincoln Center. Along with the opportunity to have lunch there, it's a great place to go for first class entertainment.
