Playhouse Square Center-Second only to Broadway

Did you know that Playhouse Square is the second largest performing arts center in North America with more than 1 million visitors a year?  This evening I was trying to explain this to my husband as he did not believe it until I started to emphatically try to bet him some major bucks it is so! I think sadly, that not enough Clevelanders may have stepped foot into the theaters to recognize why or how this could be.    A few decades ago we almost lost the historically and artistically significant gems, but the theaters were restored, and with the completion of the restoration of the Allen Theater just about ten years ago, the combination of the State, Palace, Ohio, Hanna and Allen theaters really do make Cleveland the home of the second largest performing arts districts in the entire country.  Not only that, we also get top-rate shows and are only second to New York city in terms of the number of productions a year.  If you have yet to ever check out these gorgeous theaters be sure to buy tickets for a performance soon.  You won’t be disappointed.

  1. I miss working there, actually. I had to leave in order to actually work doing what I love but I remember fondly running around backstage for GLTF.
