This performing arts center is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen; and I have seen numerous shows in New York and San Francisco. The Schuster Center compares with the best. What I especially like, as an adult, is the wine & beverage bar... More

Beautiful venue. Parking is close by. Very spacious. I prefer to sit on the upper levels. You can see everything up there. And the staff is very helpful.

Just a quick note ... Saw The Book of Mormon here last night ... I love this venue. It is a great place to see a show. It is a welcoming space, easy access to parking. The staff is courteous and personable. It is a great place to have events and I wanted to express some gratitude.

Dayton is not a Big Town but it sure has a first class theater. We have found that there is not a bad seat in the house. The facility is beautiful. Oh! And the CitiLites restaurant is great also!

Gorgeous auditorium with plenty of seating on multiple levels. Average but adequate seat spacing and foot room. Acoustics are excellent from anywhere in the auditorium. No pillars to block your view of the stage. Foreign language productions (think opera) are often supertitled in English. Spacious lobby with excellent on-site restaurant (moderate to high prices, an innovative and unique menu, foods... More

We were there for a night at the Pops. The music was great and the seats comfortable. There are people there to assist you in finding your seats and helping you locate restrooms. There are two small bars set up in the lobby for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Parking is close by and easy to manage.I have been here for... More
