Statement issued: March 12, 2020 at 3:15 p.m.

Governor Mike DeWine has issued an order to postpone or cancel community gatherings. Playhouse Square and its resident companies Cleveland Play House, Cleveland State University, DANCECleveland and Great Lakes Theater are immediately following this order. We appreciate the leadership of our public officials to ensure the health and well-being of our community and the guidance we have received from University Hospitals. 

We will work to reschedule all performances that occur during the ban. We ask for patience as this process may take some time.

Ticket holders will be notified directly by email regarding the status of each performance as details become known and we will make every effort to share information on our official Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels (@PlayhouseSquare) as well. The most up-to-date status for each event is available at 

For events that are postponed:

  • Ticket holders will receive new event details by email or phone as soon as we have them. 
  • It is our intention to reschedule as many of the affected performances as possible; we ask for your understanding as it will take some time to work with all scheduled performers.

For events that cannot be rescheduled:

  • All tickets, fees, workshops and parking paid for via credit card will be automatically refunded. 
  • Guests who purchased tickets with cash will receive a refund check. 
  • Please note: refunds are only available for tickets purchased directly from Playhouse Square and not any other source.
