Playhouse Square District

Last night my husband and I got to tour the Playhouse Square District as part of a special event called Discover the District. First, we got to tour the Connor Palace theater from top to bottom! I take people on tours in the lobbies and theaters all the time but I have to admit it was cool being the “tourist” instead of the guide for a change.

There was a scavenger hunt, lots of cool raffle baskets with tickets for upcoming shows at Playhouse Square like Trisha Yearwood, White Christmas, and David Sedaris. I would be happy to win any those, by the way!

Performing out in US Bank Plaza was a great cover band called The Ladies Night. This all male band plays amped up versions of some of the hottest tunes from the most well know divas around – Brittney Spears, Lady Gaga and Donna Summer, to name a few! Overall it was a great night hanging out in the Playhouse Square District.

Tours of Cleveland offers exciting and educational walking tours of downtown Cleveland. Playhouse Square is included on all our walking tours. Typical stops include the lobbies of the Ohio, State and Palace but does vary due to performance schedules. Our Cleveland From the Inside tour also includes access to one of the theaters themselves; a fun, private view into one of the great theaters here in Cleveland! See our schedule and book on our website, www.toursofcleveland.com.

Inside the Connor Palace! My favorite of the theaters.
