I loved this theatre as a child, but cherish it as an adult. The amazing gold leaf detail and vibrant colors on the ceilings and walls of this theatre are not to be missed. We buy season tickets to the Broadway series in part to be able to visit this venue. My 5 year old granddaughter visited the theatre for... More

My daughter's loves watching the play from the balcony. We had a Fairy party and went to see Sleeping Beauty the other guest enjoyed the girls laughter and excitement. I do recommend younger children in the balcony they love to talk. Their ages were 4-14, and everything was amazing. This was our 3 trip and we can't wait for the... More

Such a fabulous theater! I have been many times for various concerts, shows, plays. And while I am there to enjoy the entertainment, just seeing the amazing architecture is simply breathtaking. It is also a perfect location in town, close to several restaurants to catch before the show.

The Ohio theater has great acoustics for plays shows and concerts. I had the pleasure of seeing the lion King play it out on stage all of the seats allow a perfect view. Did the core is well kept & clean. The seats are comfortable and give you adequate room. It's easy to access the venue and parking is everywhere.

Gorgeous historic theater. Of course, you're probably going to see a show rather than just look at the building, but it's lovely just the same. Pick a good show to see, and you'll have a great time. It's in a good location downtown with good access to several restaurants.

We attended the Chris Botti concert at the Ohio Theater. The theater is BEAUTIFUL! Our seats were comfortable (and big). The sound was amazing.... The service at the mini-bars was excellent. I would definitely come back here to see another performance.

My family and I enjoy shows at the Ohio Theater year round. From Broadway shows, to Columbus Symphony performances and even Ballet it's all here! The venue is beautiful and the seats downstairs are very comfortable (upstairs not so much)! I also get a kick out of the special themed cocktails they whip up for special occasions.

The Theatre is gorgeous. Seen three pkays here and never disappointed. The seats are a bit uncomfortable but that's ok. Sound is great quality and views are good from majority of the space. We will be back

The Ohio Theater is one of the most beautiful theaters that I have ever been to but It is not very good for people with mobility issues. After paying almost $70 for balcony seats, I get to the theater and find out there is no easy way to get to the balcony for people with mobility issues. I struggled using... More

One of the few old magnificent large theatres left from the days of early to mid century . Great ambiance, Glorious decor. Lighting and sound has been upgraded. Volunteers have raised millions to restore and renew this grand old lady.
