No matter what the program, visiting the Schuster is a pleasure. There are no bad seats in the house, and the quality of programs is amazing. The only down side is the cost of parking.

This is a beautiful auditorium with very pleasant atrium/lobby and a restaurant off the lobby. Even the highest seats have a great view of the stage (although the performers are "smaller" from that height :-). Definitely a plus for Dayton and anyone visiting.

A beautiful place to see a Broadway play. It has comfortable seating, and parking nearby. Shows are always wonderful.

I've seen Broadway productions, ballets, and philharmonic performances here. The acoustics are great, and it's a beautiful facility. I've also attended a wedding here. Lovely!

We have seen many venues but our own Schuster Center is in the top ten. Excellent parking in the garage across the street, plenty of security, marvelous volunteers to help find your way, incredible sound(!), and Neal Gittleman!

The Schuster is awesome and the Christmas windows are a must... I remember the originals at Rike's for many years a favorite for Daytonians of all ages; Rike's was razed and the Schuster was born on the site. One of Dayton's pride.

I have sung in this venue in over 20 performances with the Dayton Opera and seen numerous performances here as well. It is a very modern theater with excellent acoustics that can be technically altered for the type of performance...i.e. opera to rock or theater...More

I took my family to see a show last month and my girls still talk about how much they loved going to the Schuster! Everyone was so nice, and the seats just couldn’t be beat. We will definitely be going back again soon!

It doesn't look like it. The parking lots are very close and there is a drop off area. There are several theaters in a 2 block radius and they all use the same parking info. If you check their website there is more... More
