Nice venue for a play

Saw Sister Act during Saturday matinee. Great play in a good venue. Ample seating, good acoustics and best of all, a large parking lot with easy access into and out.

Caught the Gregg Allman Band show on the 14th and glad we did! The sound at the Stranahan was pitch perfect and turned up just right that night. This medium-sized venue is a nice size and conveniently located. Staff are plentiful and friendly. Highly recommend catching "classic rockers" here when you can.

I'm very suprised for it being such a quaint small crowd venue that the theater itself is not more beautifully decorated on the inside. When you walk in, all you'll see is a two color scheme wall that closely resembles that of a solitary confinement cell in a nut-house. This place has so much more potential and I think would...

We've been to the Stranahan many times, but never when it was as full as for "The Book of Mormon." I ran to the ladies room at intermission to avoid long lines, and was tickled to see at least four attendants ushering women in and out as stalls opened up. I was back in my seat in no time!

Saw several great shows at Stranahan , most recently the annual christmas nutcracker ballet and Book of Morman musical. Was in balcony for nutcracker. Stairs can be an issue for anyone who has walking disability. There is no elevator how ever the staff did advise they have handicap seating if needed. Have seen many different shows here and never had... More

I don't really know when this building was erected.. But it was that " 70s " feel on the inside.. Tired, poorly decorated , cheap feel to everything... Mr Brady was the lead archetitict lol However, it brings in great first class braid way shows, and is right sized for the market. They also have a unique ticketing system.. Enjoy,... More

Stranahan has many great shows and it is a wonderful venue. It is small enough that there are no bad seats in the house and it has great acoustics. They also have bar service in the lobby before many of the performances and also at intermission which is a nice plus.

This theater is in an easily accessible location with restaurants nearby. My friends and I have season tickets and usually go to lunch before the Sunday matinee. The plays shown have ranged from awesomely great to terrible, but most of the productions have been pretty good. The season ticket prices aren't bad. My biggest complaint about this theater is that... More

The big band sound was great. I have enjoyed the Toledo symphony last year and this time the Big Band. Never been disappointed with what they do here.
