CLEVELAND -- PlayhouseSquare will rename the Second Stage Theatre in honor of longtime supporters Jane and Jon Outcalt.

Second Stage is part of the Allen Theatre Complex. It will now be known as the Outcalt Theatre.

Mr. Outcalt and his wife made a recent donation to the theatre for $2.5 million in support of the not-for-profit performing arts center's theater preservation fund. It is the largest gift received from a family in Playhouse Square history. Mr. Outcalt has served on the PlayhouseSquare Board of Trustees since 1983, and was its chair from 1996-2000.
