Shadowbox Live is a comedy venue that has themed shows that change about once a month. The shows are geared to adults- young and old, but definitely not for children. The acts are funny, have adult humor and can be a bit risqué without being vulgar. The music is provided by the house band and most of the actors are... More

We were in Columbus for the weekend and decided to try the show Body Heat. The show had great singers and a band that played great songs in between songs were original sketch comedy that was well written and acted. Plenty of sexual innuendo and an adult theme. I would highly recommend this show. The entire cast was spectacular!

Last night I saw Shadowbox's Evolutionaries, a tribute to Prince & David Bowie. What a phenomenal show! The music - band and vocals - are outstanding and they've choreographed some really beautiful dancing for each song also. Overall just a stellar experience! One of the women with me last night was in tears towards the end of the second act,... More

I took my mom on some courtesy try us out tickets. Wasn't sure how it was going to be, was originally going to blow it off. But what a shame that would have been From step one to the time we left it was great. In fact we are going back for a second show on Friday. The place is... More

Being new to the area for an extended work assignment, we often look for new and interesting places to entertain ourselves. Shadowbox Live is one of those places and we're glad we found and will return. Attending an "on the edge" Opera performance of La Boheme, we were enthralled with the venue. Watching a modern take on a classic opera... More

My wire and I went to the Shadowbox Live performance of the Shadow Zone, loosely based on the Twilight Zone. Skits with a guy who impersonated Rod Serling and others. The band was very good and played some old rock and newer songs. All the performers were very good. The food was pretty good and is served before the show... More
