Over the course of time, certain landmarks leave such an impression on the history of a city that any movement to bring them down in the name of modernism comes to nothing. Clevelands Playhouse Square has returned from the pits of ignominy after four of its five theaters had closed since the 60s. Surviving plans to raze them down, they have resurfaced with smashing renovations that have rekindled the fabled love of theater in these parts. The Ohio, the State, the Hanna, the Allen & the Palace theaters have returned to the forefront of Americas second-largest theater complex. Fans are queuing up once more for State Theater Cleveland tickets to watch productions of staggering proportions that have set their stall on 1519 Euclid Avenue.
Cleveland was established in 1796 on the mouth of the Cuyahoga River in northeastern Ohio. Earlier relying on the heavy manufacturing industry, it has moved on to establish a name in the services sector (legal, insurance, healthcare, etc) & entertainment (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame). Downtown Cleveland is the Central Business District, widely regarded as one of Americas upcoming commercial centers, & it houses the Playhouse Square. The construction of State Theater was completed in 1921 in the nineteen months it took for Playhouse Squares completion. It was the brainchild of local developer Joseph Laronge, who teamed up with New York tycoon Marcus Leow to form Leows Ohio Theaters company that contracted architect Thomas W. Lamb. Following an early boom, the theater fell prey to suburbanization & the rise of television, & vandalism & empty seats eventually prompted closure in 1969. However, the Cleveland faithful blocked attempts to raze it down in 1972 & 1977, forming the non-profit Playhouse Square Association under Raymond Shepardsons stewardship & gaining a long-term lease. Renovations began in 1979 & were completed in 1984 after the installation of a $7 million stage-house.
The famous 19th-century Italianate architectural style yields great dividends with the pedimented windows, balustrades & low flat roofs giving a classy touch. The State Theater was built at the back of the lot it shares with the Ohio because of space constraints, yet this prompted development of 98m series of three lobbies, the worlds longest lobby. Four stunning murals by Modernist painter James Daugherty adorn the lobby. The acoustics are perfect & the seating capacity was increased to 3,400 after renovations.
State Theater Cleveland tickets guarantee one an experience beyond the ordinary. The State Theater has hosted the musical revue Jacque Brel, scheduled for three weeks, that ended up running successfully for two years, & triggered its revival. Record-breaking musicals such as Billy Elliot & Wicked have been hosted by it, as well as comedies by the likes of David Sedaris & Cedric the Entertainer.
The State Theater has survived an alarming decline to resurrect its image & entertainment value with top-of-the-line productions playing on a weekly basis. There can be no further excuse needed for theater enthusiasts to grab their State Theater Cleveland tickets.
