Hanna Theatre

2067 East 14th Street Cleveland, Ohio 44115

Originally seating 1,397 for legitimate theater, the Hanna Theatre opened March 28, 1921, and would go on to host such stage and film luminaries as Al Jolson, Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda, Ethel Barrymore, Ginger Rogers, Helen Hayes, Mary Martin and Yul Brynner. Playhouse Square assumed management of the Hanna in August 1999 following its purchase of the Hanna Office Building, which houses the venue. In 2008, the Hanna underwent a renovation to add a thrust stage, re-work its seating to 550 and become the main performance space for Playhouse Square’s long-time constituent, Great Lakes Theater.
