Big Dog Theater, a new comedy/improv venue scheduled to open in the old Centrum movie theater on Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights this weekend, has run into a building permit issue. Its opening has been delayed indefinitely.

Cleveland actor/improv artist/teacher Don Mitri signed a lease in late July to take over the empty theater, which he planned to turn into a theater for local and touring improv and sketch comedy groups, as well as stand-up comics. His plans include an improv school and resident long-form and short-form improv teams.
