The kids and I donated blood and we got our tickets for half off. There really isn't a bad seat anywhere in the theatre.

We went with our sons, ages 18 & 21. We sat 2 rows from the top on the far left. What one would consider a "bad seat". I can honestly say there are no bad seats at this venue! We were able to see all that transpired on stage and with the exception of a couple actors, we were able... More

We attended the show Jitney which was absolutely wonderful--from the cast, to the set to the venue itself--it all added up to a very memorable experience! Being from Cincinnati, I have attended plays there often. However, it's good to be reminded what wonderful talent and access to the arts we have right here at home. Seeing Dion Graham was a... More

The Marx theater in the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park is a wonderful venue. There is not a bad seat in the house, and all have an intimate feel. We attended the opening night performance of "A Christmas Carol" and found it masterfully acted and directed. While we are most familiar with the story, this performance was presented as a... More

I have been attending Playhouse performances for over 50 years and can say that most were superb and some even the best theatre I've ever experienced. The setting is enchanting and with added refreshments, one can eat before a show and make an evening of entertainment, or go to nearby restaurants. Truly a Cincinnati gem, and Tony award winner.

I've gone to Playhouse in the Park for several productions now, and I've been very satisfied with each experience. The quality of the performances and the theatre are remarkable, and going to see a play truly makes for a great outing!

My wife wanted to see a particular play as she had read the book, so, cheapskate me agreed to buy tickets. This is only about the venue and not the play. Very nice venue and like a dolt I entered into this thing thinking it was a theater in a park, outdoors, with creative but cheap sets. Nope, very nice... More

I love going to the Playhouse--it has a wide variety of shows for many tastes, including standards and even some of my favorite type: edgy, "geo-socio" that are risk-taking and provocative. Always a great performance, well and imaginatively staged, whatever the play. Well worth the price.

Thank Gingerooni
