The Remarkable Rating System

The Remarkable System

CPT produces a great variety of new work. To help you select shows that will appeal to you, we have designed “The Remarkable Rating System.” Inspired by restaurants that use a jalapeño pepper symbol to alert diners to the degree of spiciness of the dishes on their menu, we are rating our full productions using our own system. These ratings are not judgments about thequality of the work but our best guess about how “Remarkable” they are.


Daring shows that will appeal to a broad spectrum of theatre-goers – a great option for introducing your friends to CPT. These shows address important contemporary issues and offer a great evening at the theatre.

Performances included in this category are:

Teatro Publico de Cleveland’s A Recipe para la Vida
Standing on Ceremony
Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant
Johanna: Facing Forward

Brand new work on the cutting-edge of theatre in Cleveland. These shows may be funny, emotionally powerful and wonderfully performed – and they are also adventurous. Super Risk can mean Super Experience. We are shooting for the moon – you can let us know if we crashed or triumphed.
