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!

Check ahead for $10-25 seating for great shows.! The balcony seats are all excellent! Nice ushers, and beautiful Connor Palace! If you are hungry they have huge pretzels, candy, cookies, drinks, and cocktails available too!
