I went to Shadowbox live for the first time and had a great experience. This is a restaurant with stage and the audience can enjoy the show having dinner. The band members wished people who were celebrating birthday/ anniversary singing songs and by wishing all. This makes it even a great place to celebrate the occasion with friends and family....

I went to Shadowbox Live for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. I saw best of Shadowbox 2016 and it was hilarious. It is definitely adult humor and I laughed most of the evening. Like reviewers before, it was similar to Saturday Night Live type by having several short comedic skits with live music throughout. The food was pretty,... More

Our friends introduced us to the show for our first time on Friday, and I have to say it was fantastic. The music was fabulous and the skits were hilarious. The food was awesome also. The Friday, 7:30 show, was $30 and they offer a student rate for $25. The Saturday show was a little more. I definately plan on... More

Shadowbox live theater is fun and entertaining. The local talent in Columbus Ohio is phenomenal! This place even has good food and friendly service. The actors and actresses are your servers as well as your entertainers! A really fun, casual, inexpensive time out!!

But there is more to love at Shadowbox, too! I can't say enough about how fantastic some of their dramatic performances have been, thinking especially of Scrooge as well as Woodstock-themed performance in the park. I have brought dozens of "virgins" to Shadowbox over the years, and everyone has enjoyed it. I also want to compliment the consistent quality of... More

Outstanding theatre group, bistro and bar in waiting area, so you can make an entire evening of it without leaving the building. Comedy shows are skits and good music mixed, not funny bone style. Theatre good size and 1st come 1st served with seating but seated at tables with food and large variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. Comedy... More

There is something to be said for live theater. Great show and really good music. Looks like some fun events coming soon. If I lived in the area, I'd be a regular customer. SO worth it.

This was my first time going, so for those that do not know what to expect, it is not a traditional play, nor is it a traditional concert. We saw Best of Shadowbox 2016 and think of it like a Saturday Night Live performance. The skits were very funny and the songs between the skits were just as good. I... More

Saw the Hashtag Comedy show in the small stage area. Loved the setting more than the show. Would go back to see other shows here. Easy to find street meter parking.
