The Playhouse in the Park introduced its 2022-2023 year Wednesday evening. It was just one of the most abnormal season bulletins in memory. Not simply because of the selection of shows, although there are a several surprises in there, as well.

Instead, it is because fifty percent of the mainstage productions will not really choose spot in the theater’s iconic Eden Park place.

At the stop of the latest season, the Playhouse will raze its 55-calendar year-outdated mainstage, the Marx Theatre. And although they’ve by now got the new mainstage underneath construction, it will not be completed in time to get started the 2022-2023 period. So producing creative director Blake Robison determined if audiences just cannot occur to the hill, then he’ll take the theater to them.

While the new 530-seat Rouse Theatre is in its closing phase of construction, the Playhouse will develop three demonstrates in distant areas the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theatre, the Carnegie (in Covington) and the Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre in East Value Hill.
