We went to the Christmas improv show at Arnold's Bar and Grill. The show was quite fun. It was quite uneven, of course, but really picked up after the intermission with a film noir version of "Die Hard".

I have seen two shows in the Know Theatre and have been impressed with the setup. It is small, but it works great for some plays because the audience feels like part of the company. Starts on time and the small bar allow you to grab a drink and chat with friends before or after an event.

With only 100 seats, this modern theatre complex offers more excitement per chair than any space in town. Conveniently located in the heart of Cincinnati's OTR district, with convenient on-street as well as garage parking options (across the street is the gated, supervised and safe 985-space Gateway Garage - entrance is off East 12th Street during evenings) our impression was...

My husband I first came here a couple of years ago for a play. We came again last month for their improv festival. This theater does independent and offbeat productions. The atmosphere adds to that hipster feel and is a worthy member of the OTR scene.

The KNOW theater is Cincinnati's alternative theater. At the beginning of every summer they have a two week festival called the Fringe Festival, during that time there are tons of shows going on throughout the Over The Rhine area. Shows are very alternative. They are often solo, monologue shows with political, gender, etc. themes. If you into that kinda stuff,... More

A cool, edgy theater in a cool, edgy neighborhood (OTR). Offers lots of different shows, improv comedy, and an amazing Fringe Festival in the early summer. Has a bar inside, but it is within walking distance to many areas bars and restaurants. Street parking available or a parking garage directly across the street.

The Theatre options in Cincinnati are almost endless. It often comes as quite a surprise to even the “born here” locals that there are so many wonderful production companies in the Cincinnati area. And with that being said, there is always something for everyone, no matter your theatre going taste. Some prefer high end expensive productions – like Wicked and... More

We went to a one-man concert show in the basement theatre. It was fun and interesting. Important tip is to get there early if you want a seat with clear sightline of the stage.

There are about 50 fold-up chairs and about four feet from the stage. The actors do a great job. Very edgey content. Its not located in the best of areas but parking garage is next door.
