We are loyal fans of the Arden Theatre holding season tickets for over 15 years and attend even the Childrens Shows 2x a year. It's hard not to love everything about The Arden. The show selections every year are fantastic-we take the Leap Of Faith every year which provides a break on price by signing up w/o knowing the shows! THAT's HOW MUCH CONFIDENCE WE HAVE IN THEIR PRODUCTIONS.
The performances are always high quality (we love them all but stand outs include Jeffrey Coon, Mary Martello, Scott Greer, Ben Dibble, Doug Hara).
The sets are insane, they can be minimalist but highly effective or extravagant and wildly detailed.
There is not a bad seat in the house, regardless of which stage (there are 2) you are in or what configuration they have developed.
The prices are extremely reasonable. Often under $30.
Where else can you see high quality, often ground breaking performances with professional actors at the top of their game, in a smallish theater with amazing sets for such a small price? Dramas or musicals. They are all truly amazing.
What a true gem in Philly. Thank You Arden!
