Playhouse Square is a theater district in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, United States. It is the largest performing arts center in the US outside of New York City (only Lincoln Center is larger). Constructed in a span of 19 months in the early 1920s, the theaters were subsequently closed down, but were revived through a grassroots effort. Their renovation and reopening helped usher in a new era of downtown revitalization in Cleveland, and was called "one of the top ten successes in Cleveland history."

  • We saw Jesus Christ Superstar tonight and we enjoyed it immensely! The cast did such amazing, amazing job and we were moved to tears several times. The band and orchestra kept us hooked with their magical music. ❤️❤️❤️
  • It was a very entertaining evening at the Playhouse Square! This venue houses multiple theaters in the downtown Cleveland theater district. I was able to buy tickets online a few weeks in advance for The Hip Hop Nutcracker at The Keybank State Theater. The only option they gave was to mail the tickets directly to my home, which they did so promptly. Advance paid parking is available at the time of purchase. They also offer valet parking at a price of 40, which I highly recommend! It was a wonderful convenience on a cold winter's night. The Playhouse Square is located in a very safe area downtown. The multiple theaters show plays, musicians, comedians, and more! Definitely check out all they have to offer. It's one of the best places to spend an evening while in Cleveland!
  • Playhouse Square has always been a solid entertainment venue and a special part of Cleveland. Their Broadway series always brings the best shows to town. Our most recent visit was to see Tori Amos in concert and it was like a time machine back to the 90s. Magical. Thanks for continuing to be a world-class theater venue.
  • We love Playhouse Square! It's a beautiful suite of theaters, and soon they'll be decorating for the holidays! We are so lucky to have these theaters in our area! You can see touring shows and local shows here!
  • Attended Tri-C Jazz Festival on Playhouse Square. It was so great to be out enjoying activities like this again. The festival was a lot of fun. Playhouse Square was filled with night lift. Love the chandelier and all the lights.
