Striking theater space, all the seats are up front and interactive with the cast. Best theater in Cincinnati for Classic Plays and occasional surprises

I will go again and again to the shows at Cincy Shakes. Amazingly talented performers, very comfortable seating and not a bad view in the house. Wine and refreshments served at intermission. Big thumbs up!

Wonderful performance in the new theater, allowing the company to demonstrate where they can go that they could not on Race Street. Bodes well for devoted Cincinnati theatergoers, many wonderful experiences ahead.

The theater is small, but they are getting ready to move to the new location. There have been several productions we have attended, and never disappointed in any performance.
