Brewery District

Located just south of Columbus’s central business district, the Brewery District has a history stretching nearly 200 years. At the height of its success, five breweries were located in the area. After Prohibition, the district declined, becoming home to some industry and warehouses. In recent years, redevelopment has brought numerous restaurants, bars, and even a grocery store to the area.

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: Shadowbox Live’s American Idiot Expectantly Excels with the Music

After waiting years for the rights and enduring much anticipation from their patrons (and the general public too, since I saw more Shadowbox virgins last night than any other time I have visited), Shadowbox Live opened the regional premiere of Green Day’s Tony Award winning musical American Idiot. Green Day began as part of the […]

Theatre Review: Shadowbox’s Sex at the Box: Uneven But With Some Raunchy Delights

Richard Sanford Richard Sanford Theatre Review: Shadowbox’s Sex at the Box: Uneven But With Some Raunchy Delights

The hardest things to review are the erotic and the comic. What makes us laugh and what arouses us are so specific to each person that what works for someone will leave someone else utterly cold. So it was a double challenge to watch Shadowbox’s new show, Sex at the Box, with an eye toward […]

Walker Evans Walker Evans Yelp Wants You to Return to The Brewery District

That doesn’t mean that The Brewery District should be overlooked though, with a wide range of nightlife and entertainment options that include […]

A Look Inside the Gallery of Echoes

 Lisa Much A Look Inside the Gallery of Echoes

There has long existed a sort of disconnect between the various forms of art. Actors often do not understand writers who do not understand musicians, and nobody knows what designers do. They think and act differently. That occurs in performance art; the dissimilarities grow stronger when comparing performance to visual art. Most artists pick a […]

Theatre Review: Evo Takes You on an Emotional Journey

Anne Evans Anne Evans Theatre Review: Evo Takes You on an Emotional Journey

The company of Shadowbox Live dazzles in their reincarnation of the 90s off-broadway rock musical Evo. Many of the banners throughout the stage were from the original show. Director Stev Guyer decided to bring this show he wrote with Jimmy Mak back, and I’m glad he did since I was not here to see the […]
