Hanna Theatre at PlayhouseSquare

Cleveland, Ohio    map
Status: Complete

The theatre, which has been adapted for use by the Great Lakes Theater Festival – an anchor production company of PlayhouseSquare and one of the country's top regional theatres - conveys an open plan that connects the patron to the stage from the street to their seat, always visually connected to the performance. Typical and atypical support spaces (such as a café integrated into the lobby through movable glass partitions) and many other amenities are designed to promote pre- and post-performance gatherings in the lobby and associated orchestra bar, which is located within the house of the theatre.
