We now know how to "be in the room when it happens." The Broadway smash, 'Hamilton' headlines the 2017-2018 Key Bank Broadway Series coming to Playhouse Square.

Seven shows were announced at the launch party, including the two already released, 'Hamilton' and 'Waitress.'

'Waitress' kicks the season off from October 17th- November 5th. It's the launch of the national tour of the show, with music and lyrics by singer, Sara Bareilles. Bareilles is excited to start the tour of her show in Cleveland and says, "I always love coming here.
