Today's the day! The only day you'll be able to get your hands on discounted Jump Back Ball 2013 tickets with NO handling fees. Be sure to get on over to Market Garden Brewery between 5:30 and 7:30 to score this great deal. This is the party that sells out earlier and earlier every year so be sure to snag your spot now. Check out this post for all the details.
You know that Jump Back Ball is PlayhouseSquare's mega fundraising gala that Clevelanders wait all year for, right? Well imagine if we didn't have the second largest Theatre District in America. Imagine that where the glowing lights from the State and Palace Theatre are, there was just a parking lot. Where Cowell and Hubbard is sat rows upon rows of parking spaces. That almost was a reality.
In the late '60s and early '70s, decay and neglect almost rendered the theatres nearly obsolete and not much was standing between them and imminent destruction. "Staging Success: The PlayhouseSquare Story" premieres tonight at 8pm on WVIZ Channel 25 and takes you through the heartbreak and heartwarming story of the revitalization that saved this iconic Cleveland institution.
Not to worry if you don't make it home from the brewery in time. If you forget to DVR it, you can catch it again at 9pm on Friday, 4pm on Sunday 11/18 or 10pm on Thanksgiving.
This is something all Clevelanders can truly be thankful for.
