We saw A Christmas Carol at the playhouse. It was awesome. We had a great time. Everybody from the parking attendant to the ushers were so helpful and kind to a couple of senior citizens. My husband has a scooter and everyone went over and above to make our night great. The play was everything and more than expected. Everybody... More

I have always A Christmas Carol, so when my wife purchased tickets for my birthday I was very excited. The location is located in a park in a very upscale area; however, I would not consider it exactly safe after dark. Parking is limited and I highly recommend buying the parking garage pass, pay in advance. Finding on the street... More

Having lived in Cincinnati some 20+ years, I had never been to Playhouse in the Park to see a production of A Christmas Carol. Last night we went to the 7:00 show and it was wonderful. Aside from a small glitch with something set-related, the evening was a huge success. Incredibly talented cast put on a wonderful performance of a... More

We don't live in Cincinnati, but we've been to at least a dozen performances, most recently Ring of Fire. We enjoyed the songs; the book was undistinguished, but luckily it was mostly singing. I can't never fault the theaters, the actors, or the quality of the productions. It's a superior organization.

We've seen many good and great shows here and a few ones that didn't grab us - we'll continue to seek out our subscription every year! Located in Eden Park (adjacent to Mt. Adams), the Playhouse is located just minutes of the center of downtown Cincinnati. There are two theatres in the house, playing both well-known and not-so-known theatre. Many... More

This theatre started life as a converted pavilion in City park. It has grown remarkably over the years, and now is one of he finest things Cincinnati has to offer. A great asset to the City.

We have seen three performances here since we moved to Newport two years ago. The theater itself is just fun to go to!~not a bad seat in the house. The ticket prices are quite high considering there have been times that the ticket price would have bought me a ticket in the theater district in Times Square. This does not... More

This musical about Johnny Cash (told through his music) was outstanding. The acting was top-notch, as was the music. The main stars even looked like Johnny Cash and June Carter. I noticed that some of the actors would play several roles, and it was sometimes confusing to the audience. For example, the actress who played the mother of Johnny Cash... More
