A wonderful, sparkling addition to Columbus' performing arts!
Jun 2015 • Couples
My wife & I recently attended two Friday evening performances: "Unnecessary Farce" on 6/5 & "Spamalot" 0n 6/12. We were pleasantly surprised by both experiences & happy to see this wonderful addition to Columbus' performing arts.

"Farce" was in the smaller, very intimate theater that included tables for dinner (bring-your-own food & purchase drinks - nicely done). The performances were hilarious! The cast of 7 was energetic, expressive, & very, very funny. In particular, Blake Copeland was one of the best physical comedians we've ever seen. In fact, we enjoyed the performance more than a recent comedy at the Springer Opera House, which we have attended for 10+ years.

"Spamalot" - with a cast of 16 - was in the larger of the two theaters with conventional, comfortable seating (enhanced by a greater height difference between rows than the RiverCenter). Spamalot was well done & funny, but too much of the dialogue/lyrics was muddied by the acoustics. Nevertheless, for us the show was more entertaining than the version of Spamalot we had seen at the RiverCenter 1-2 years ago.

FYI, the Repertory Theater performs in CSU's new Riverside Theater Complex. They are an extension of CSU's Department of Theater & includes both CSU students & professional actors. You can find their season program listing at http://theatre.columbusstate.edu/. Ticket prices range from $12 to $20.
