    Favorite part of tour? Having not been to the Museum in 50 years (I was intown visiting family), I completely expected what I found: a beautiful, well maintained, exciting museum with representations of all art forms, styles, periods, and media. Once in and past the greeting counter, you walk through a darkened space, highlighting a magnificent painting by Kinhinde Wiley, the guy who did the beautiful post-presidency portraits of Obama and Michelle. Then on to the seemingly myriad rooms with Van Goghs, wonderful art glass sculptures, Rookwood Pottery wallscapes, and so much more - even the Miro and Steinberg murals saved from the soon-to-be demolished Terrace Hotel in downtown. Anyway, we spent half the day there and could easily returned the following day. Next time! GO, walk, and relax with the beauty the Museum houses.

    This was my first visit since renovations were complete; it turned out nice and though revitalization was necessary, I found it a much more magnificent place prior to. Swan Lake was great. Bar service fantastic; you can even preorder for intermission. Absolutely beautiful place and must visit if in Cincinnati if at all interested in arts and/or history.

    My wife and I enjoyed this excellent theater today for the first time. We enjoyed the great show, "The West Side." The writing, the actors, directors, lighting, sets––all terrific. The view of Cincy is amazing; parking was easy. We can't wait for the next show.

    I drove down from Columbus to see Steve Hackett perform the entire Genesis “Seconds Out” albums and more live. It was an excellent show! I’ve waited over 50 years to hear “Supper’s Ready” performed live. No overwhelming light shows or theatrics but fantastic music! I liked it better than the Roger Waters show I saw later that year.

    It’s an ornate old theater that’s been lovingly restored. Right downtown on the south east side. The Phelps hotel is right around the corner if you’re looking for a nice place to stay while in town. Seats are comfy and I don’t think there’s a bad view in the entire place.

    Great music, great venue and a reasonably quick serving bar. I was truly a happy camper! Go! Enjoy!

    We've been here for two shows over the last two years and plan on coming back many more times. The players are always good with tons of energy. I say intimate because every seat is a good seat and you feel like each actor is looking right at you. Especially the master of ceremonies from Pippen. We saw Spamalot here on our first visit. Looking forward to next year.

    In its relatively new home, attendees can sit in the round only six rows away from the thrust stage. Patterned after The Globe Theater in England, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company has ramped up its productions not only with the building, but also continued excellence in production, acting, sets, costumes, design, lighting, fight scenes, sound, playbill and overall themes.

    I love this theatre. Always have from the days of when I used to live on Ludlow and work at the Uno's. Fantastic local theater , of which many don't exist anymore. The staff are always amazing, and I hope it stays around forever.

    This is a small theater but with high production value. The setting is intimate and the performers do a wonderful job. It did get a bit warm starting during the middle of each act. I know that they were running the AC beforehand but turned it off during the performance.

    Saw Saturday nights performance for Romeo and Juliet. It was an outstanding night for everyone from the performers to the audience. I highly recommend not overlooking this company.

    Love this venue. Lots of bathrooms so you never have to wait in line even if it is a sold out show. Also there are tons of bars too so you don't have to wait in long lines. Merch stands are everywhere to keep the lines short. And there's is a variety of food to choose from.

    The somewhat small menu choices are excellent and wide ranging, Our salad was large and excellent and the hot main dishes were tasty and generous. fine service. Pnly slightly loud at 6pm. A fine restaurant seeped in 20th century rock music history.
