In a few years the Cleveland Playhouse will move into two theaters in the Allen theater in Playhouse Square. Clevelanders are already going downtown for sports and theater, so the move should draw in more Westsiders and tourists. With this move there will be seven major theater venues in the downtown area! Maybe the “Comback City” has another comeback on the horizon!

WordplayWordplay is an offbeat mix of poetry, comedy, and an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of the spoken word. Wordplay's opening monologue blends music and language (and sometimes sound effects) into a surreal, funny, often darkly serious meditation on the state of one man's struggles to live in the bewildering world of contemporary America. The show also features guest appearances by local poets and nationally known writers. But the real strength of Wordplay is the interaction between co-hosts George Bilgere and John Donoghue. The two poets read short, interesting poems by important writers. They banter about poetry, argue about it, and generally give each other a hard time. A Plain Dealer article about Wordplay called the show "the Click and Clack of poetry." Not a bad description.
