"Marc and I just want to thank you for allowing us to have a perfect wedding reception last weekend! The theater looked even better than we'd imagined it would all dolled up, and your staff was incredible. We heard compliments all evening (and in the days since) about how friendly and fast the bartenders were. Our only regret is that we didn't have a longer party, because it ended too soon!"
Elizabeth Tull

"Our members enjoy seeing and experiencing new venues for our monthly education events, especially in the ever-evolving, up-and-coming, popular OTR district. Chris and the staff at the Woodward Theater went out of their way to help make our event exceptional. It’s a fun, intimate space – a blank canvas to make your own that could work with just about any theme."

"The Woodward Theater is a unique venue in OTR; historically important and beautifully restored with a gorgeous bar. Though billed as a music/rock venue the space lends itself to hosting any kind of event. I have been involved with managing several live theatrical and variety shows as well as business parties held at the Woodward. The owners are easy to work with and accommodating to a myriad of requests."
