The tour was very interesting. They pointed out neat architectural features like the curved stairs, and fancy ceilings and chandeliers. This place is really breathtaking and feels like a step back in time.

Fabulous Broadway Production!!! The show was so well done!!! Our seats were excellent- upstairs- Section 7... we could see and hear very well- seats were comfortable. The theater is absolutely stunning with the golf leaf domed ceiling. Love presentations at Playhouse Square. Convenient restroom facilities.

My teenage daughter's, ages 16 and 14, and I all enjoyed just the scenery of the district. We walked around for about an hour just taking in the sites. We would definitely recommend this to those visiting Cleveland looking for something to do!!

Such a treasure to have this theatre district in Cleveland. A great area, that is constantly adding more restaurants and shows to bring the people in. We had a great time last night when we came in to see The Sound Of Music.

The theatre is classic, beautiful, and comfortable. The show's quality (American in Paris) was top-notch, and equal to Broadway. I would return in a heartbeat!

Free tickets, historical landmark, great view from any seat. I couldn't recommend this more! Only unfortunate that you could not take pictures of the architecture inside. Beautiful!

Old restored Lowe's type theater with a balcony and box seats. Smaller than most of the theaters in the theater district, it is charming! When in Cleveland do go see a show. In researching the area many experts say that Cleveland ranks next to New...More

They are raised up, so you can see, but you are far, far away. Just bring good binoculars!
