#repost @cleveplayhouse...In the #Broadway community, it is a tradition to dim the marquee lights for one minute to honor the passing of a celebrated artist. @PlayhouseSquare will join CPH in mourning this loss to the Greater Cleveland theatre community by dimming the marquee lights in Cleveland’s Theatre District on Wednesday, October 28 at 8:00 p.m. to honor Kevin Moore. Moore's name and photo will appear on the Allen Theatre marquee in his honor.
