Although we are apart right now, our mission remains unchanged: to provide arts experiences of the highest quality, to advance arts education and to be the steward of our downtown district, but we will need your philanthropic support to continue serving the community. After this intermission ends, our curtains will rise and we will all take our seats together again. Please help us overcome the financial loss we are experiencing as a result of 1100 performance cancellations today, so that we can be there for you safe and strong tomorrow.

Ways to Help

1. Give a one-time donation

With our theaters darkened for the time being and more than 1100 performances canceled or postponed, the financial ramifications are serious. We recognize this is a challenging time for many. If you are able to make a donation, your support will help us prepare to bring performances back to our stage and to continue our not-for-profit mission into the future.

If you hold tickets to a canceled show or rescheduled performance you cannot attend, you can choose to donate the value of your tickets back to Playhouse Square and receive a 100% tax-deductible receipt. You can even donate just a portion of the value - every dollar counts!

To donate your ticket value, please call 216-241-6000 and a member of our staff will be happy to assist.
