Which upcoming events are you most excited about to kick off summer?

***Disclosure: I was asked by both Cleveland Public Theatre and the Cleveland Zoological Society to help promote their upcoming events mentioned in this post. In exchange, I was offered ticket(s) to these events, but declined both due to scheduling conflicts. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
