Intimate Live Theater at it's best. Everything from Attached, affordable Parking through Ease of access, to an intimate theater where there are no bad seats, the sound of even the stage whispers easily heard and the program in Quality and variety is excellent.

“History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I believe this was one of the fancy Lowes theaters from the 1920's. Great place for a show or theater preformance. Worth seeing and right in the hart of the theater district. GO and support them, it is really worth it. Take the kids if the venue is appropriate.

“Lack of Information When Reserving Tickets”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I was not at all impressed with the Allen or other theaters in Cleveland. For one thing, I was given no information on the availability of parking. We had to find parking outside which was a distance from the theater complex in the RAIN! Only when I phoned after the performance was I told the particulars of parking IN the complex.
The selection of performances could have been better.

“Good plays..Live Music.. Playhouse Square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Vintage 1920's and updated to our delight. One of the four theathers in walking distance. This is the smallest and brings you close to the actors. What a wonderful job everyone has done to bring the Broadway plays and top mucic performers. A treasure to treasure. Get tickets on line and go.

“Great Local Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We have had season tickets to the CPH for a few years, and have thoroughly enjoyed the quality and variety of the plays that are consistently produced at the Allen Theater. Since moving from the Cleveland Playhouse to the Allen in 2011, the experience is even more memorable.

If you enjoy the arts and want to see great plays at a reasonable cost in a beautiful theater, this is the place to go in Cleveland.
