1st time visit to this venue. I recommend parking in the garage. Seating needs more disclosure as I took my elderly mother. Very steep with a lot of stairs. I recommend purchasing the handicapped spaces. Staging is excellent, elevator available, good selection of drinks for young and old. Adjacent to plenty of decent restaurants and highway. Plenty of variety in shoes for the location. Definitely, recommend for locals and anyone visiting for a stay in Cincinnati.

Lots of fun plays here, but they are not cheap. Parking is a problem, either buy reserved parking or come early. Additional parking is behind the Art Museum. Otherwise, parking in Mt. Adams is limited. If you are mobility impaired, getting around inside the venue is awkward. Lots of steps.

A fantastic time for all ages. Classic, cutting edge, funny, musical and dramatic plays. Never a bad show.

Great venue except for one thing...parking is the worst. Especially if there are played in both theaters. Quick there was tonight. There is barely enough parking if one of the theaters is open. But the shows are always great, the service is good and the venue is great. Still...but not a Five Star rating

Always enjoy going to plays. Seats too far to left or right can be odd watching play at times. But that is the same at any venue like this.
