I went to watch The Grinch during the Christmas season. Great production with props and actors. It was at Connor Palace. The Palace was beautiful but very packed--which was understandable given the show/time of year. Took a while to exit the theater. There is a Playhouse parking garage but there are other (cheaper) garages nearby as well as free street... More

I was trying to figure out what to get my mom for Christmas because she has everything. But she'd never been to Playhouse Square so I got tickets to a show. A Cleveland classic movie A Christmas Story, I ended up liking it better than the movie. For the holidays the Allen Theater was lined with beautiful trees each one... More

We've been to the State Theater twice this month for shows, and had 2 very good experiences. Parking was easy, inexpensive, and just a short walk from the entrance. I had our tickets emailed ahead of time, so getting in was very quick and easy. The theater itself is beautiful! We sat in the mezzanine for one show and the... More

My daughter and I traveled from CA to CLE for our first show. I visit CLE about 4x per year, but have not seen a show. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. They showed me to Will Call and answered my questions. The actual theaters (architecture) are incredible! If there was a show titled, "Just Walk the Lobby," I'd... More

Residents of NE Ohio are fortunate to have this gem of a theater district in their backyard! Great shows in beautifully restored theaters! Those who don't take advantage of this world class theater district are truly missing something great!

We saw the Nutcracker, performed by the Philadelphia Ballet Company and accompanied by the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra at the State theatre. This performance was dramatically different then a previous performance we had seen a number of years ago. The dancers and the costumes were very, very good. The scenery and staging was also exceptional. My only complaint was that the... More

We saw My Fair Lady, and it was a marvelous presentation! I grew up knowing the words of every song, but this performance was just amazingly beautiful! I would not miss seeing it again and will certainly look forward to my next Playhouse visit.

If you have never seen a live professional performance this is a must and NE Ohio is very fortunate to have tremendous facilities. Playhouse Square has so much to offer. The offerings are varied and reasonably priced and the experiences are well worth it. There are so many things to do in the immediate area before or after any production.... More

I saw two shows the Beauty and the Best and The Lion King. I give five stars to both. They were absolutely amazing. I recommend to go see a show.
