Cleveland Sights


PlayhouseSquare Review

The second-largest theater district in the United States (after New York), Playhouse Square houses seven landmark theaters: the Palace Theatre, State Theatre, Ohio Theatre, Allen Theatre, and Kennedy's Cabaret form the main complex on the north side of Euclid, while the 14th Street Theatre and Hanna Theatre stand across the street on East 14th Street. Beautifully restored and one of Cleveland's brightest success stories in urban renewal, the center hosts Opera Cleveland, dance companies, pop performers, first-run and touring Broadway shows, and the Great Lakes Theater Festival.

Free tours of the theaters are available the first Saturday and Sunday of every month, departing every 15 minutes 10–11:30. Tours cover backstage as well as lobbies and auditoriums.

Reduced-price tickets for many of the Playhouse Square Center stages are available through Ctix.
