We have season tickets to the Broadway series and most of the shows are here. Its a beautiful venue and I would give it the highest rating if the seats weren't so uncomfortable. But still enjoy our visits here.

Magnificent restored theater. Crazy beautiful. Symphony and simmer movies series are amazing. Be aware that knee room in all the balcony seats is really tight. Spring for the main floor is you have issues with long legs etc.

Nationally touring broadway shows stop at the Ohio, in addition to a variety of film series. The theatre is ornate with much to look at. As with most theatres of this kind, do not expect a lot of legroom between rows. They are very proud...More

I have taken an umbrella into the theater, but that was probably a few years ago. Unless you are using public transportation, underground parking is available at the State Capitol Building and other garaged locations... More
