“Local Theater at It's Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We discovered this professional theater in down town Cincinnati quite by accident on a recent trip. It is a beautiful small theater with only 191 seats. The atmosphere is warm and intimate.
We attended opening night of "Black Pearl Sings". This play runs until March 31st and I would highly recommend it. The story, the music and the cast of only two actresses are spellbinding.The tickets were very reasonable for opening night - $42. We took a taxi to the theater but it was so close to our hotel, 21C Museum Hotel, that we walked back. It is close to several of the down town hotels. We will definitely attend this theater again on our next visit to Cincinnati.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We usually look for their sales before purchasing tickets. We love it. Next to Normal was even better than the Broadway show and the Broadway tour, so they have an excellent cast. It's a very intimate venue where there is no bad seat in the house.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a top notch regional theatre in an exciting urban setting. GREAT "new" plays and beautifully produced, this is a MUST see for any theatre lover and for those who want to see something very special on their trip to Cincinnati.

“Ensemble Theater Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a great place to see whay I would consider off Broadway shows. I'm not a real lover of stage BUT let me say this place is hands down better than the Aronoff. It's a smaller theater and you are able to see the actors from the back row unlike the large theaters. The stage performances are remarkably well done. HAving been to large productions at the larger places, the Ensemble is by far, the best for your entertainment bucks. Plus the area just a block north has several eateries that should be checked out like Taste of Belgium, Lavomatic, The Senate, Abigail street and several more. Parking is located in a lot located in the middle of all these places. Yeah, it's very safe in this area.
