“Wonderful”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is the best place to see a Broadway play without going to NYC! I have been a part of the "Broadway Series" for about 15 years and it continues to get better. The Tony Award winning performances they bring to Cleveland are outstanding. Our cluster of restored theaters are magnificent!!! The all-volunteer staff is courteous and helpful. Great entertainment!

“PlayhouseSquare is a true asset for Cleveland!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We have never had a bad experience at any of the theaters at PlayhouseSquare. It is fairly easy to park and get in and out of a show. The Playhouse garage is great in the winter, with the connections to the theaters. It is also nice to park in the garage before a show, walk to dinner and not have to move the car. The staff is always knowledgeable and courteous to the patron with any issue. We have season tickets to the Broadway series and would definitely recommend it to those that want to the see take in the major shows. Small concert venues and local theater group productions are also excellent.

“Shen Yun”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We went to see the Chinese Dance company Shen Yun during the holidays. It was a beautiful evening. The costumes and scenery was so colorful and the dancing/acrobatics was top notch.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We have been to broadway and the toronto theater district. I prefer Cleveland's playhouse square hands down.The theaters are beautifully restored (worth the visit just to see them). The plays are first rate and more affordable than NYC.

“Gorgeous Place”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went to see a Sesame Street show and had a great time. As i expected there was alot of overpriced items in the lobby to puchase like ballons and such. There was close parking available for $10 a car. I am very glad we have such a gem like this so close to home.
