Dazzle The District Giveaway

Cleveland has some pretty exciting things happening this year. One of the most energetic is the Dazzle the District celebration on May 2. Playhouse Square is making history and changing the face of downtown with significant neighborhood renovations. There will be dramatic new lights and video signage around PlayhouseSquare, elegant gateways, a "retro" sign inspired by PlayhouseSquare's 1920 roots and the world's largest outdoor chandelier - the GE Chandelier. 

This is going to be an unveiling that will go down in history. It will be one of those events that you will kick yourself if you miss. 

The best part?

It is FREE! 

Check out this video about the GE Chandelier. It is pretty cool.

  1. My favorite memory of Playhouse Square was the excitement of knowing that Beauty and the Beast was coming! It is one of my favorite musicals and I was super excited that I would get to see it at the wonderful Playhouse Square

  2. I just tweeted!!

  3. Today, i took my 16 yr old to see American Idiot for his birthday. What a great memory!

  4. My favorite memory was when my then boyfriend (now husband) took me to see Mary Poppins for my birthday. He had never been to the theater but made what he thought was a sacrifice for me. Imagine my surprise when we were seated in the front row! WOW! What a great show. Needless to say, he still goes to theater with me regularly!

  5. I follow you both on twitter.

  6. I have seen so many great shows at the Playhouse including Stomp, Phantom, Beauty and the Beast and Fiddler on the Roof! I also love the performances they put on for the schools! Junie B Jones was one of my kids favorites but they enjoy them all! The District is looking so good! I can't wait until it's all done and ready to dazzle!

  7. I tweeted as @Tribechic 4/29/14

  8. I follow both on Twitter as @Tribechic!

  9. I saw Leonard Cohen at the Allen theater at Playhouse Square in 2008. It was the best!

  10. I tweeted:

    I would follow you on twitter, but they cap followers and I can not follow more people.

  11. My last memory is of Lion King. I was excited to go but unexpected conflict came up. I was disappointed but donated the tickets to the Ronald McDonald House. Received a really great thank you note.

  12. Thanks for commenting. Winner will be selected this evening.

  13. Congratulations Holly Braschwitz!
