Dazzle the District with PlayhouseSquare

It's almost time! PlayhouseSquare is just days away from dazzling not only the district but the entire city when they flip the switch on the GE Chandelier this Friday. The inaugural lighting of the world's largest outdoor chandelier is the finishing touch on the year-long transformation of the theatre district and will literally illuminate the revitalization that has taken place in the surrounding area.

PlayhouseSquare is known for throwing a pretty fantastic party or two and this will be no exception. They are closing down the streets and have planned Dazzle the District, an incredible soiree for the entire city. 

The party starts at 5pm when the district comes alive with happy hours, commemorative cocktails and live music. Hot Chelle Rae will be on hand at 8:30 to kick off the grand lighting ceremony with the iconic chandelier being lit at 9:30.

Watch how this all came about in the #DazzleCLE "Making Of" special:

When I walk through the theaters of PlayhouseSquare, my face smiles with pride and my heart expands with love. I'm so excited that the beauty within has exploded into the streets and will dazzle for decades.
