The Arden, located in Old City, is a small venue with excellent sight lines and shows sure to entertain. Discounts at area restaurants are offered with ticket stubs. If you are in Philadelphia before June 24, check out Gypsy.

Wow! what a treat! to see this amazing, innovative, delightful, clever, entertaining "American Revolution!" The actors are superb, the dialogue funny and witty...we didn't want it to end. It is a short run...only until June 11....you really don't want to miss it.
