Playhouse Square Center
PlayhouseSquare, in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, is the second-largest theater complex in the United States (second only to New York City's Lincoln Center). Constructed in a span of 19 months in the early 1920s, the theaters were subsequently closed down, but were revived through a grassroots effort. Their renovation and reopening helped usher in a new era of downtown revitalization in Cleveland, and was called "one of the top ten successes in Cleveland history."

“Whenever theres a big war coming on, you should rope off a big field. And on the big day, you should take all the kings and their cabinets and their generals, put em in the center dressed in their underpants and let them fight it out with clubs. The best country wins.”
—Maxwell Anderson (18881959)
“Rationalists, wearing square hats,
Think, in square rooms,
Looking at the floor,
Looking at the ceiling.
They confine themselves
To right-angled triangles.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
