The Walnut Street Theater is the oldest theater in the country. One of the many firsts for Philadelphia. They have top notch shows every season and has become a tradition for many in the Philly area.

“Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

Oldest Theatre in the city and very well done. Great casts and plays for a reasonable price.
Small but charming and not a bad seat in the house, good eateries close by and also reasonable.
Don't miss this if you are in the city

“First class productions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

I have been a subscriber to the theater's five yearly productions and am always impressed with the quality of the performance. This year's holiday production of The King and I is not to be missed.
