Playhouse Square Announces Expansion of KeyBank Broadway Series

Aug 4, 2015

Beginning with the 2016-17 season, shows coming to Playhouse Square as part of the KeyBank Broadway Series will run for 24 performances over three weeks, an increase from the current schedule of 16 performances over two weeks. 

With this expansion, Cleveland joins an elite group of cities able to support runs of touring Broadway shows for three weeks or longer. While producers have long considered Cleveland a “must-stop” for their tours, we are now a premiere venue with even greater ability to attract the best shows direct from Broadway. 

Our not-for-profit mission charges us to create an exciting destination that spurs economic growth. Adding these additional Broadway performances to our calendar will bring thousands more guests to Playhouse Square, benefiting area restaurants, hotels and parking facilities.
