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

Great place to see plays up close and personal. It's on the edge of Eden Park and Mt. Adams, both are worth exploring. Nationally recognized plays are shown in the Playhouse that sits atop of a hill and has convenient parking. Almost all seats are good and close enough to the action to experience the play. Two theaters are at... More

What a wonderful place to view a play. Very intimate setting. The play we saw was a Sherlock Holmes who done it presentation. Very well produced. The only negatives were the lead ( Sherlock ) was somewhat hard to understand and the handicapped parking area was reserved ( Not sure this is legal ). Overall a good experience. A rating.

Went to see Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club. Really enjoyed the show. It was a little hard to understand the English accents in the beginning of the show, but once the play was underway, it was easier to distinguish what was being said.

for a smaller city like Cincinnati, it's impressive the variety of great shows that they are able to bring into town here. Many classics (like a Christmas Carol) as well as some that are more creative and eclectic. In a great area of Mt Adams, I've never been disappointed by any show I've seen which you can often get at... More
