The State and Ohio theaters feature accessible seating on the main level, whereas the Palace (where most Broadway shows are presented) offers the broadest range of accessible seating choices. The historic Allen Theater has stair-lift access to the main level, and the cabaret-style Hannah features accessible seating at almost every table. There is an accessible drop-off location in front of the theaters, and they have approximately 30 wheelchairs on hand to accommodate slow walkers.
Just let the ticket agents know about your access needs when you make your reservation, and they will do their best to accommodate you. For a taste of Cleveland’s best musical entertainment, head over to Severance Hall, the home of the Cleveland Orchestra. Th e building in itself is an architectural treasure, complete with a 1930s vintage elevator. The accessible entrance is on East Boulevard, however there’s a wheelchair drop-off zone at the parking garage entrance. Access is good throughout the theater building, including level access to the green room, where artists typically meet and greet patrons.
And finally, if you’d prefer a more intimate setting, then check out Pickwick & Frolic. Located in the heart of the 4th Street Entertainment district, this fun venue features a restaurant, a cabaret room, a martini bar and a comedy club. Access is excellent throughout whole complex, and it’s a great place to spend the evening. Start with dinner, have a few laughs at the comedy club and then top it off with a martini. What better way to enjoy Cleveland?
