A Renovated Cleveland Public Theatre

The Cleveland Public Theatre moved into the upper story of 6415 Detroit Avenue in 1984. James Levin, who had graduated from Case Western Reserve Law School, traded his services as a lawyer with a motorcycle gang for renovations of the space. In 1994, the Cleveland Public Theatre completed its first successful fund raising campaign and purchased the building. The first floor, previously occupied by a used appliance store, was transformed into administrative offices, a scene shop, and a black box theater.
