This is a marvelous theater in the old school. Glorious interior design. It's something that you can drive by and have no clue how beautiful it is inside. We seen many productions over the years. Never disappoints.

Old historic theaters are beautiful, but people are no longer 5'2" and 90 lbs., although the seating reflects it. Most guests had their knees against the seats in front of them and were crammed into the seats. One of our party did have that issue, spoke with a supervisor who re-seated her. That was absolutely the best service I had... More

went to opening night. Had 5th row on the aisle. Wow. What a super performance. Diana Ross had 25 outfit changes. The voice on that woman was outstanding ! Didn't realize Gordy and Diana had an affair. Looked it up when I got home and found that Gordy had been married 3 times and Diana was his mistress. She said... More

Dramatic. Compelling. This is the first play of the 2014-2015 season. We were riveted, glued to our seats. As we were leaving, we met a very young couple who had NEVER attended a play before. They told us they thoroughly enjoyed The Little Foxes, as did we. Superb acting! Perfect set. A totally thought-provoking performance. We have Season's Tickets and... More

What a beautiful new setting for the Cleveland Play House. I particularly love the before show discussion. Great insights into the play we are going to see. Plus we can see more of the theatre that way. The price of theater is so cheap compared to other big cities. Truly a treat.

We saw the Piano Guys in concert. They were great but what was more amazing was the theater itself. It was beautiful renovated theater from a bygone era of the 30/40s. It was simply beautiful. I highly recommend seeing a production in any of the theaters that comprise the Cleveland Playhouse.
