Dazzle the District

Playhouse Square is the second largest theater complex in the U.S., second only to Broadway in NYC. The theater district has undergone major renovations over the last couple decades, from restoring the interior of each theater to its former glory to reconfiguring the Allen Theatre in collaboration with Cleveland State University.

Now, Playhouse Square is preparing to make history with the lighting of the world's largest chandelier this Friday during its Dazzle the District event.

The event celebrates the completion of Playhouse Square's $16 million renovation project, which includes retro signage inspired by the 1920s-era roots of the theater district, gateway arches, outdoor seating with a fire pit and permanent stage for concerts, and digital signage. The focal point of the renovation is the GE Chandelier, which is suspended from a 44-foot high steel structure over the intersection of East 14th Street and Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland.

Dazzle the District kicks off at 5 p.m. with happy hours, food specials and live music on U.S Bank Plaza. American pop band Hot Chelle Rae, known best for their song "Tonight Tonight," will perform a free community concert at 8:30 p.m. The event culminates with the lighting of the chandelier at 9:30 p.m., followed by a second performance by Hot Chelle Rae.

Local bars and restaurants will be open for the duration of the event. Dazzle the District is free and open to the community.

Don't miss this historic moment in Cleveland history!

Friday, May 2 from 5-11 p.m.
