I've already discounted every word you've typed, and I'm sure most others feel the same way. By the way, it's "seriously."

Yet you've never been to Milwaukee.

If all that concerns you is the "size" of a theater district, and you wish as well to ignore the fact that Chicago has "several" distinct theater districts, as well as a far more extensive and innovative overall theater scene than Cleveland does (much of what ends up on Broadway in NYC originates in Chicago, for example) -- well, in that case you may be right...

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Every metro in the Midwest has a variation of the theatre, orchestra, etc. Real, cutting edge arts (what is happening now) vary city-to-city vastly. Cleveland and Cincy simply do not compare with Columbus today (or for the past few decades), and I would know, since I've been booking bands and installations for a couple decades now and this is the kind of information I have to possess.
Very good point and well stated.

^ Prof, I wouldn't worry too much about what the above purveyors of low-culture Columbus boy-bands, bars, and beer conclude about high-culture Cleveland and Cincinnati art offerings and institutions. Nothing more happening in Cbus than chaff being blown about in the wind--here today, gone tomorrow. Undoubtedly, if one's 35 or older, they'll understand.

I'm over 35, and I'm concerned that you are also yet you're into boy bands. Pretty creepy. What's specifically happened in Cleveland that will "stick?" The answer is - nothing. 5th run plays. 180th run classical compositions. Are you completely unconcerned with vibrant, living culture? Because if so, you don't "get it," sorry.

Hahahaha, I love how you're letting your emotions get away from you on an online forum. We've moved from 3rd run to 5th run plays, and 180th run classical music. You still haven't explained why you think cutting edge= culture, when most European cities have lots of culture but are not necessarily cutting edge. Besides, Cleveland does have cutting edge things. We have a brand new Museum of Contemporary Art, and several Avant Garde theaters. In fact, the New York Times just printed an article about how cultured Cleveland is. http://travel.nytimes.com/2013/07/21...cleveland.html. The last line of the article? "...a T-shirt for sale at the homey Coffee House on the Case Western campus didn’t seem as far-fetched as it once might have. Emblazoned across it: Cleveland Is My Paris."

I think you're projecting your emotions "getting away from you" onto me, because your statement couldn't be further from the truth. I've explained why cutting edge = defining local culture numerous times already, you can't get blood from a stone.

So, you're over 35 and concerned with vibrant, living culture? Exactly where do you believe the rest of us to be? () We all mature in vastly different "social climes," and for you, Columbus has become some sort of Midwestern cultural-Mecca. Nevertheless, your own illusions don't translate into everyone else's reality. What's next--how many comic book stores, urban graffiti, flash mobs, Somali immigrants, and LGBT paraphernalia the other "2-Cs" lack? Please spare the rationale why Cbus is the "center of mind and heart" for the Midwest--and, in turn, you'll be spared learning why Cleveland and Cincinnati are Ohio's ONLY two cultured big-cities. (A deal?)
