Went to a fantastic performance by string artists called "Well Strung", four handsome young guys playing cello, violin etc classics morphing into pop tunes. Looks like the venue is bringing in some great talent to this comfortable setting, where we were able to enjoy good live entertainment with affordable drinks. Super enjoyable evening for our whole party of five. Will... More

We went for a dance performance. It is a lovely space with the seats not being too crowded together and fairly intimate as far as size goes. The temperature was good as was the sound. But the bathrooms were a problem. Before the performance, half of the stalls were without toilet paper and it was not attended to during the... More

As exemplified by enchanting Andrea Marcovici, Cabaret is alive & well in Philadelphia. An intimate setting upstairs at the Prince Theater, the RRaze Room is an opportunity to sip some wine or bubbly, while listening to oldies but goodies at little round tables nestled close the stage.

Either is they've kept it very nice or it is newly renovated. Whichever, it is really nice! The theater is very spacious, and it was practically a private showing since there... More

Watching a re-broadcast of the Royal Opera Company's stunning production of Tosca, my favorite opera, while sipping beer, munching chips & holding hands with my fella was the best date I've had in a long time! Thankfully preserved, the grand Prince Theatre has been put to good use by offering live performance broadcasts, quality films & interesting musical events. An... More
