The Schuster Center delivers professional touring productions of current shows. Lovely theater - Citilites restuarant onsite for pre-theater dining.

Absolutely world-class theater in a surprising location-downtown Dayton OH. Great shows from national touring companies of broadway productions as well as Dayton Symphony, Opera, Ballet, & dance companies. No better facility anywhere, and we regularly see NY, London, & European shows.

The entire experience is wonderful. There are volunteers at every corner to help you. The will call line moves so quickly, I no longer have our tickets mailed to us. There is not a bad seat in the house. AND, the seating is very spacious, and comfortable.

The Schuster Center is a wonderful venue in downtown Dayton that is not only convenient to get to, it is beautifully designed and run. I've been there twice in the past two weeks - once for a classical performance (Mozart & Strauss) and again for the Super Pops - Billboard Hits of the 60s. Both were very enjoyable and I... More

This theater is a gem. It is as nice as any theater I have been around the country. The theater adds to the shows. Well worth a visit.

Okay, I love going to most shows. Nobody does it better than Dayton in Ohio. After a year trying the Aronoff, Palace in Cleveland and Columbus. This is a venue who wants to meets it guests needs.

The lighting director succeeded in spoiling last nights performance. At times it was brighter in the local balcony then at noon on a sunny day. It would have nice to be able to see the performance and not be blinded by the lighting directed at the audience. There were plenty on complaints during intermission, but nothing was changed. Was told... More

If you are looking for large productions this is the place for you! Many Broadway shows come here. Staff is nice and helpful. The only draw back is the seats are so uncomfortable! It is also difficult to see the whole stage from your seat. Who designed the seating?!

I have been to this theater three times and the experience has always been satisfying. The facility is literally a work of art with its "glass house" design The interior design of the theater is equally striking in a modern way and very functional. I always go there with my daughter who uses a wheelchair. The access is excellent and... More
