PlayhouseSquare is one of the largest theater complexes in the country, the construction of which was completed in the 1920s. Although it was not the first one to open (the Ohio and State theaters being the first two), the Palace Theatre soon gaimed fame for various reasons. The electrical sign above the building was once the world's largest, and the lobby housed an expensive art collection, but it was the vaudeville shows that drew crowds. This theater has also played host to artists like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Fanny Brice.
