Participant Profile

Dagmara Gumkowska


Playhouse Square Center is the second largest performing arts center in the U.S., with a diversified range of shows from ballet, opera and classical theater, to comedy, gospel musicals and touring Broadway productions. Dagmara had the opportunity to see how PSC prepares for different types of performances from both a front-of-house and a back-stage perspective. She participated in production, budgeting and development events and meetings, and in the activities of the Idea Center, a new arts and education facility that includes public radio and television stations and a theater. PSC arranged visits and meetings with other cultural institutions in the area, notably Cleveland Public Theater.
