Whether it's your first time visiting Playhouse Square or you're looking for new recommendations, let us help you plan your visit!

Cleveland Ballet Pas de Dix from Raymonda


We suggest you arrive at least 45 minutes before your scheduled curtain time. Arriving early allows you time to leisurely park, visit the facilities or concession stand and find your seat without disrupting other guests' show experience.


We wish for every guest to have a wonderful, unforgettable experience during their visit. To provide that assurance, we ask that all noise-making devices (cell phones, pagers, wristwatch alarms) are turned off and that, when possible, our guests remain seated during all productions while keeping chatter to a very minimal level. Candy wrappers and other noises made by food or beverage consumption can also be a distraction, so we ask that you keep this in mind during the show. Exceptions apply depending upon the nature of show or concert.


Wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable! Playhouse Square is your performing arts center and we want you to feel most welcome, regardless of wardrobe. The type of performance can sometimes be the best indicator of what is most often worn by others. For example, the audiences might be dressier for a live theater event than they might be for a pop/rock concert, comedy or family show. Men often wear casual slacks with a button down shirt or sweater and jacket while others opt for jeans and a polo shirt. Some men even prefer wearing a suit. Attire for the ladies varies from dresses and skirts to pants and jeans. Proper footwear may be a consideration, as most of our historic theaters do not have elevator, and you may need to access your seats via stairs. Ultimately, attire is really up to you and your guests - we just want you here with us, and comfortable enough to enjoy your experience!


Playhouse Square provides accessible restrooms and seating, companion seating, audio description, hearing assisted services, large-print programs and wheelchair assistance. Service animals are welcome. For more information, visit Playhouse Square's website.


The Playhouse Square Garage is located at East 15th and Chester. The garage offers a covered walkway into the theaters, accessible from the second floor of the garage. Elevators are available on each parking level. Prepaid parking is just $18 and can be purchased in advance.


Playhouse Square offers a variety of items such as candy, cookies, soft pretzels, assorted nuts, Coca Cola products, bottled water and coffee. Our bars serve a selection of beers, wines and spirits. Please note: Food & beverage selections vary by performance and guests may be prohibited from taking these items into theaters for select shows or performance. Signs will be posted if food and beverages are not permitted in the theater.
