Went with a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. The venue is great. Not a bad seat. We had balcony seats and still could see everything. Performers were amazing. Music was great. Loved it!!

Went to Columbus for the weekend for my husbands birthday and we enjoyed the symphony. We had never been to Rivercenter, but it is an amazing place. We went early to attend the "Know the Score" where we heard explanations about the evening's music and enjoyed a question and answer time with the guest pianist. What a great way to... More

Every time we go it is so enjoyable! Never have we been disappointed in any of the performances or concerts. The parking garage is just across the street so its easy access. The staff is always so nice and willing to help. It's just a Grand Venue!

Went to see the Columbus Ballet performance of the Nutcracker. Excellent facility and outstanding performance. The only problem I encountered was how people were still be allowed to enter 30 minutes into the performance. For most attractions once they close the doors no one may enter until intermission. People streaming in during a ballet is distracting and rude.

This is a beautiful venue and offers top rate entertainment for the area. Plays and concerts are presented for all ages and in all genres---and it is now the home of the Miss Georgia Pageant. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My wife & I have enjoyed performances at the RiverCenter many times over the past 12 years. We thought that the excellent staging of "The Great Gatsby" on Saturday 4/18 was particularly remarkable for its one-set creativity & the quality of its small, talented touring company. That the theater could do this so well for only one night was a... More
