***Disclosure: I was invited to attend Theater Ninjas’ [sic] with two complimentary tickets. I was invited to the media preview of MOCA Cleveland’s Winter 2014 Exhibition Season, but declined due to scheduling conflicts. I am a member of Playhouse Square Partners. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
