“Well-done and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We have been season subscribers the past two years. They do about half Shakespeare plus other comedies and dramas. There are some very talented actors in addition to great staging, costumes, and props. Parking is nearby and reasonably priced. Try a few shows and you will be hooked too. They do about 8 or 9 productions each year.

“be warned- could become addicted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

we have gone to the Shakespeare Company's productions for a few years now, and even if you are a "traditionalist", I think you will enjoy this ensemble's productions. The group is such a wonderful and talented collection of actors & actresses, and the theater is charmingly intimate. They use the aisles and front of the stage due to size, but that adds to the audiences involvement in the production. They take the content and often twist it with diverse settings( for example "Measure for Measure" set during the Prohibition era) and it works to make bard's words more relevant! Located within easy walking to nice restaurants, close parking, you should give it a try...and become addicted to these people who create this wonderful gem of a theater in Cincinnati,

“Great Theater, Amazing Crew!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

My wife and I have been here many times. Most recently for Dangerous Liaisons which was excellent. (Show, entire cast) Tickets are reasonably priced, staging is always creative and the theater is very intimate. Won't review an individual show but definitely my favorite theater in Cincinnati.
