Great little theater in Philadelphia. Not a bad seat in the house. The play Metamorphoses was very well directed, acted and extremely entertaining. The theater is very easy to get to from anywhere.

We just saw the Arden's production of "Metamorphoses" by Ovid on Friday night. The set was beautiful and evocative--a large pool of water was set into the floor in front of the stage, with the actors interacting with and immersing themselves in the water while...More

If you love the theatre then see if anything is p,along at the ARDEN when you are in Phiadelphia. The performances are equity and the quality is terrific. I have seen many plays and musicals here and they are all excellent.
