The big marquees and twinkling lights let you know you've arrived in Playhouse Square, Cleveland's official theater district. This collection of glamorous, restored theaters draws well over a million visitors annually for Broadway shows, concerts, dance performances, opera and two in-house performing groups, The Cleveland Play House and Great Lakes Theater. Aside from New York's Lincoln Center, this is as big as it gets in the United States.
3 Must-Do Things
- Watch incredible actors perform your favorite Broadway shows at Playhouse Square.
- Relax at U.S. Bank Plaza while viewing the iconic chandelier at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and East 14th Street. Enjoy the cozy fire pit, comfy outdoor seating and, if you're lucky, you might catch one of the many live performances or dance parties held throughout the year.
- When you walk into Cibréo, right across the street from the Mimi Ohio Theatre, you’re in an Italian wine cellar accompanied by the sweet smells of fresh bread and rustic Italian cuisine. Good thing calories don’t count when you're going to see live theater. (That's a thing, right? It's totally a thing.)
