Restored Ohio Theatre Lobby Completes Playhouse Square gem

The transformation of the lobby of the Ohio Theater at Playhouse Square was so dynamic, that the organization based a major fundraiser around its premiere. The site of “A Christmas Carol” and other shows for a quarter century, the Ohio Lobby was painted in shades of green that gave only a glimpse of its ornate past in the 1920’s. More than 700 guests, including a strong contingent from our readership, celebrated the “restoration of the legacy”. Specially created carpeting replicates the original pattern and color, and classic murals adorn the walls. The color palate of the plasterwork now includes gold and blood red. The restoration of the lobby was a look back, but the funds raised at the event look forward to special performances at Playhouse Square for children on the autism spectrum who can only enjoy a sensory-limited experience. Above are Nicolle and Thom McGowan of Bay Village and Karen and Fred Kappus of Rocky River.
