More Than Just A Show

A three-part mini-film about the Playhouse Square story that invites you to experience the history, people and places of Playhouse Square- the nation's largest performing arts center outside of New York.

Through behind the scenes footage and exclusive interviews, this brief mini-film brings Playhouse Square's unique, not-for-profit mission to life.

Relive how an entire community rallied to save this destination from demolition. Discover its resurgence into a vital source of economic growth, community enrichment, and civic pride...all through the performing arts.
