BEST show. Riveting. State of the art with great humor. Most of the acts - I just can't figure out how they did it. Don't miss this!

Wow! The Kimmel Center is just beautiful! We saw the Illusionist show which was amazing! Our seats were way up the 4th floor yet we could here and see everything! The acts were amazing!

Funny guy in a classic setting - try and get seats in lower sections unless you get front rows in Family Circle and Amph.

We got the stadium seat at the back of the stage, and it was best concert experience we've ever had. It was very close to the stage and we can see clearly the face of conductor and action of each performer. Best of all, we can hear the music directly from the instrument, not from the amplified speaker. Of course,... More

Not a bad seat in the house. could use better food options. Our name is on the wall as contributors (Just a little contribution) when it was built; still we're proud.

Some of the best Chamber Music in the World right here in Philly. Check our their website and book tickets well in advance. Prices are reasonable but the good seats always sell out early.

I've visited twice in three years. Both times, I went to see a philadanco performance. Each experience was enjoyable and one that I will never forget. Most memorable were the accommodations that were available for my sister who has a disability. The facility is wheelchair accessible and the seating was very comfortable. The auditorium was clean and the staff was... More

We felt engulfed in a musical instrument as we sat in our seats. What a beautiful intimate venue for performances.

Went to see the Philly Pops Classic Soul Concert and the experience was a wonderful one, the Pre show held in the waiting lobby was great, the service at the bar was very quick and bartenders very nice, prices are as to be expected for a place like this. I was a little disappointed when I was told I could... More
