With nearly 200 photos and documents from Playhouse Square Center's archive and the Michael Schwartz Library's own Cleveland Press Collection, Playhouse Square, a new web exhibit in the Cleveland Memory Project, presents a concise history of "the largest performing arts center in the U.S. outside of New York City."
Photographs depict the Allen, Hanna, Ohio, Palace and State Theatres from their salad years, through the years of decline, to their eventual renovation and renaissance. Documents, mostly programs, highlight some of the theaters' landmark performances. Also featured are a brief timeline of events and fact sheets for all five theaters.
Brand new Playhouse Square along with other Cleveland Memory web exhibits, The Early History of the Cleveland Play House (1915-1984) and The Dobama Collection offer up a panoramic view of Cleveland's theatrical scene through the years.
