La Comedia Dinner Theatre is located in Springboro, Ohio. La Comedia is one of the nation's largest professional dinner theaters with Broadway-style productions. 2009 marks the 34th season. The theatre produces between 6 and 9 productions each year and also hosts music groups for short gigs. Guests are first served dinner buffet style and the show follows about an hour and a half later. Shows run for about 6 to 8 weeks.

La Comedia opened January 28, 1975 with the production of 'A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum' under the direction of Dub Narramore.[1] One of the first advertisements for the dinner theatre announced an "Exciting dinner and a Live Professional Broadway Stage Play", "both for only $6.65".[2] At age 27, Joe Mitchell was the original producer and owner of La Comedia Dinner Theatre until he sold the establishment in 1987.
