What an AMAZING theatre!! Such an easy pick up of tickets at will call! The theatre is absolutely stunning! Pictures don't do it justice! The performance was so enjoyable for my two 9 Year olds I had with me. We will definitely be back!

It is always a treat to see a performance here. Slightly smaller place so it feels more intimate. Nice acoustics. Easy parking at the statehouse.

The Ohio Theatre is absolutely beautiful! The interior architecture is breathtaking. I recommend going to a symphony, as the acoustics are wonderful for this type of event.
