I love the way the Playhouse seems to have retained the grand old theater look while providing the acoustics necessary for thoroughly modern act like Trombone Shorty and his brassy New Orleans band.

Happened to be in town when Aretha Franklin was in concert. What a beautiful concert hall. Also, the seats are comfortable with plenty of room. This may not be a big deal for some, but in my home city we have a Theatre where the seats are too close together, uncomfortable and it detracts from the event.

We truly enjoy our visits to the Cleveland Play House in their new theater at Playhouse Square. Their newest production, Red, was amazing -- funny, thrilling and poignant.

Fantastic, entertaining interactive comedy. Even if you are not Irish you will laugh until your sides split, well almost. A great casual evening with dedicated actors.

Recently moving to a new site on Playhouse Square, the new theater is spectacular! Seats are close to the stage even in the balcony. The plays this year have been delightful. The Second Stage Theater is only 7-rows deep so you are very near the action. Definitely worth a visit.
