Day 87/100
Playhouse Square Center
This performing arts center houses NPR’s Idea Center and numerous theaters where you can come to see concerts, dance, plays, comedy, opera, and speakers. I’ve seen Phantom of the Opera, Frost Nixon, Flannigan’s Wake, and Andrew Bird here - that’s a musical, play, comedy, and concert! I’ve even been here for a wedding. My first real exposure to Cleveland was in the State Theater for my cousin’s Chinese-Indian wedding (the Indian ceremonies were performed on the theater stage, and the reception was held in the theater’s gorgeous Italian Renaissance style lobby). Once a friend and I rushed here for what we thought was a jazz concert, and were so late that we arrived during intermission. We should have realized something was off when we saw that everyone was dressed in formal wear, but didn’t realize we had walked into the middle of an opera until the curtain came up and we saw an entire winter themed set with fake snow and 18th century characters singing in Italian!
