After paying almost $70 for balcony seats, I get to the theater and find out there is no easy way to get to the balcony for people with mobility issues. I struggled using... More

This historic structure is still a beauty. a great venue acoustically pleasing with all central seating a good bet. Only the front corners are obstructed from the full stage view. Intimate setting for low key artists. Robert Cray sounded fantastic here.

Loved going to popular shows and plays here, like The Nutcracker, etc. The inside is very historic, you'll know right away by the seats, walls, just about everything inside. Beautiful and nostalgic are a few words to describe it.

We are so lucky to have a beautiful theatre in Columbus, Ohio. It offers a wide variety of entertainment ranging from broadway shows to one of my favorite concerts. I love it when we have the opportunity to attend a concert at the Ohio Theatre. It's such an intimate venue fir concerts.

My family and I have been to the Ohio Theatre many times over the years. It is a beautiful venue to see any performance. We have visited to see the "The Nutcracker" several times over the years and it is always amazing. My daughter and I recently were there to see "Wicked". It was an absolutely wonderful show and venue.
