Key Moment:

Special Occasion. Unique Experience. Exclusive Access.

Key Moment is a special service available to Playhouse Square guests when attending a KeyBank Broadway Series show in the Connor Palace Theatre. It is designed to help our guests celebrate a special occasion by delivering a unique experience prior to the performance. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion, you can now surprise that special someone by purchasing a Key Moment that includes a beautiful red rose with a personal message, a glass of wine, a special gift from KeyBank and access to the exclusive Roy H. Holdt Boxholders Lounge.

Creating a Key Moment experience is easy - just fill out the form, and select the gifts you would like to have waiting for you at the Roy H. Holdt Boxholders Lounge.
