Nine of us went to see The Best of Shadowbox 2016. We had a wonderful time. I recommend getting the theater by 5:30 for a 7:30 show. Make sure at least half of your party is in attendance. Get a seating number and then spend time at the bar before you get your table around 6:15. This venue is great... More

A friend of mine got four free tickets to Front Street Funk at Shadowbox Live. We were all a bit skeptical at first, but it ended up being an amazing night! It was my first time there. It's a great little theater that serves dinner. All of us ordered nachos which were full of deliciousness and amazing toppings. I also... More

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

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
