Playhouse Square's Momentous Star Plaza Chandelier First Light Draws Near

Posted By on Thu, Apr 10, 2014 at 11:43 AM


Back in October, Playhouse Square unveiled plans to string a spectacular 20 foot, 8,500 pound crystal chandelier across Star Plaza in downtown Cleveland - this week trusses to support the beast went up and workers continue to plug away on the project in anticipation of the May 2 official first light.

“We hope everyone will plan to be part of the excitement on May 2,” PlayhouseSquare President and CEO Art Falco told Scene back in the fall. "...[It will be quite a special night for Northeast Ohio. You are going to want to be able to say you were there.”

The idea is that this piece will be a neighborhood spectacle, admired not only by Clevelanders, but by people from around the world, Falco said.

The chandelier is just one component of the $16 million Theater District transformation, which also includes new gateways, light-up video signage, upgraded lighting and sound systems.

If you haven't driven through the district lately, head over to NewsNet5 for a peek at the construction progress.
