Will The Lights Go On Again In Playhouse Square? This article was in the Sunday Plain Dealer, March 19, 1972, 45 years ago today. The title refers to the streetlights being out from 13th to 18th along Euclid Avenue. It was pretty dark down there back then, on nights when the Allen was open the marquee was like a beacon of hope. Back then not many people thought the four theatres there would ever re-open. This was the story that got me involved with the project, a week later.
