Last night we saw Evolutionaries and it was Amazing! Great show, great service & good food & drinks. We moved away a year ago and were happy to catch a show during a quick trip back to OH.

This is a must-see if you want a flavor of local art. Not every show is the absolute greatest, but we've never been disappointed. The food is marginal, except the desserts which are decadent. But the drinks are reasonable and there is something to appreciate...More

Cool skits and hard working staff but the nickel and diming for every penny they can squeeze out of you is annoying.

Went here for one of their "shorter" shows available on Friday evenings. We went for my boyfriends birthday and they did not disappoint. Food was good, staff was great and show was awesome! Highly recommend.

I've always loved their sketch comedy and rock music so I knew the show, Evolutionaries, was bound to be good. It was marvelous, really outstanding. I'm a Bowie and Prince fan anyway but they brought it all to life.
