Cleveland Play House

Readers' Choice

This venerable institution is enjoying a spruced-up new look in the renovated Allen Theatre at Playhouse Square. And under the artistic direction of Laura Kepley, the Cleveland Play House is doing some interesting things in terms of play selection. Last year's elegantly vicious The Little Foxes was nasty fun. And soon to come: Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, Christopher Durang's comical take on Chekhov and contemporary pop culture. 1407 Euclid Ave.
