Everyone should take advantage of the theaters in Cleveland. They are more beautiful than the ones in NYC and have top performances!

I love this theater! Always have a good time here. Concessions are great, serving alcohol too, and it’s easy to get around. My only complaint would be the bathrooms need to be expanded upstairs.

Many quality theaters in close proximity hosting complex stage productions in comfortable settings. I was very impressed. These venues rival those in Boston.

Beautiful new and restored theaters featuring the latest Broadway touring companies as well as local theater and other touring productions and entertainers. It is really the centerpiece of downtown Cleveland and is a unique asset not available in other US cities.
