LaComedia Values YOUR Opinion – Please take our Poll

We are very grateful to have such passionate support from faithful customers like you, and can’t wait for the chance to serve and entertain you again. However, we want to do so in the most appropriate and safe manner possible. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to our customers.

Now, we are trying to gauge the interest level of a potential reopening this holiday season and would love to have your feedback before any decisions are made. In the event of reopening, be assured that every precaution will be taken to provide the safest “Taste of Broadway” possible. We will adhere to any guidelines and protocols from federal and local authorities. That includes hand sanitizer stations, social distancing markings, etc. Other changes you will experience will be a specific arrival time to avoid long entrance lines and wait times. Tables will not be shared with other parties. However, groups booked under the same reservations will be placed together. There will be plenty of space provided between occupied tables. In place of a self-serve buffet, our staff will now be plating the food as you make your way through the line. Of course our buffet will feature all of your holiday favorites including our famous sweet potato soufflé! Your salad and dessert will still be served at your table, and our full service bar will be offered.

In the event of reopening this holiday season, in place of A Christmas Story: The Musical, we will produce a lively, one-act holiday revue approximately 90-minutes long with no intermission. It will be a festive holiday celebration featuring Christmas carols along with hope, joy and laughter, and our traditional singing of O’ Holy Night.

With the state of Ohio’s current guidelines for performing arts theatres and restaurants limiting seating capacity, we are asking our loyal patrons to answer the poll honestly regarding the possibility of LaComedia reopening this holiday season.

We welcome your feedback in the comment section. Your response will help us in our decision making process. LaComedia greatly values and appreciates your time and can’t thank you enough for your support. With your help, we hope to provide “A Taste of Broadway” for many years to come.

Coming Soon
If we reopen to produce a festive holiday revue this November and December, would you attend?
