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

It's theater in the half round for this Cincinnati landmark. The venue is intimate, the acoustics are good, but the seats are not cramped; there is plenty of leg room. I've seen two plays here and enjoyed both. We prefer the sets in the center sections to those on the outside. Definitely buy advanced parking as spaces are limited and... More

The playhouse in the Park is an excellent facility. There are no bad seat some better than other. We had handicap. Seating due to my husband uses a scooter. Everyone was very helpful and concern about our comfort. I would recommend this theater to anyone who enjoys live theater productions. Would go back again if and when they have another... More

The Playhouse in the Park is the perfect intimate venue for seeing live theater - there really isn't a bad seat in the house. These are professional productions with experienced actors and amazing sets. Plays are varied, providing something for everyone. You can catch dinner in Mt. Adams before the show (within walking distance) or even grab something quick at... More

Last night was not our first visit to the Playhouse. In fact we have been going off and on for many years. The Playhouse in the Park is a modern facility that allows the presentation of small venue plays in a manner that gives every guest a feeling of intimacy with the actors and the story being told. There are... More

Visited the theater for the first time, and watched the Sherlock Holmes play. The play itself was fairly good, set was nice, & props good. The stage itself can be viewed from just about any seat, but use caution if selecting seats along the far edges as then your view is less than ideal. I have to say, the seats... More

We recently saw "I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti" at the Playhouse in the Park. It was a wonderfully entertaining one-woman production. The venue itself is charming and intimate -- no matter what the production. Very user friendly in terms of parking, box office, etc.

I've gone to many shows over the years both theaters, and I am always pleased. The smaller stage of the Thompson Shelterhouse provides an intimate setting for some of the most entertaining features. The Marx Theater (large stage) doesn't have a bad seat in the house. I was recently blown away by their production of Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure... More
