Passing of Kevin Moore of Cleveland Play House


It is with great shock and sadness that Cleveland Play House shared the news of the passing of Managing Director Kevin Moore.  On Saturday, October 24th, Kevin tragically died possibly due to a pulmonary embolism or heart attack. He was 59 years old.


(Side comment:  Kevin was a warm and caring person.  I, personally, will miss him, as will the entire CLE theater community.)






Theatre in the Circle presents STEERING INTO THE SKID, a free online theatrical event that helps family members, caregivers, local businesses, and the broader community be in a conversation around the subject of dementia.


In 12 short, clever scenes the audience comes to know a loving couple and bear witness to the early progression of dementia. 


“Our goal,” said Theatre in the Circle’s Mark Corcoran “is to assist community members and leaders consider new ways to think about memory loss and to become aware of local resources that support families who are dealing with a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. 


Presented by Theatre in the Circle, the program is co-hosted by Judson Services, Judson Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association Cleveland Area.

Grab a ticket and ‘drive-in’ to join the nine muses as they reflect, dance, and share their most memorable ‘inspirations’!!!
