  • Follow me for the next adventure! Went here for a show. The show was incredible however let's focus on the facility. The only thing that drops this to a solid 4⭐ is ... It was HOT in there. My three companions and I were all sweating. Pro-tip: dress in layers Beautiful venue. Seats were comfortable. From our seats in the second row, second balcony it did not appear that there was a bad seat in the house. They allowed drinks in the theater. We had three bottled drinks and two cocktails for $29. Parking was easy in the garage across the street. $10 for the night of our event. ⬇️ If you found this review helpful, hit the 👍
  • Had an amazing experience here for the first time to see Fiddler on The Roof. The show was truly great, refreshments were reasonably priced, and I appreciated the show starting in a timely manner. The staff was helpful and kind when I interacted with them. Four stars instead of five because I truly feel that being the premiere theatre in Dayton they should put money into their seating arrangements - I was uncomfortable the entire show as there is no padding on any of the seats and they are crammed closer than an economy class during a flight.
