Gorgeous Old Theatre right in Downtown Columbus, seeing a show here reminds you why you dress up to go to shows.

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.
