I've been to this little theater in the past. It's been about five years since I'd been here. I was invited to see , Dionysus Was Such A Nice Man. The play was an easy, enjoyable watch. The Wilma is worth a visit.

Never a disappointment. Fresh. Edgy. Thought provoking theater. Every seat is very good. Love the discussions offered after the show. Become a season ticket holder.

Not a bad seat in the house. Intimate and easy to get to with valet parking a half block away. The ballet was remarkable also.

The Wilma Theater provides the best avant guarde drama in Philadelphia. The theater is constructed so that the audience is close to the stage in almost every seat. But that also presents a problem since getting to your seats is sometimes difficult; you must slide...More

Great theatre that doesn't kill your wallet. Tickets $25 and $10 (students with ID). Comfortable, easy to book, easy to get to. Production we saw not my taste, but companion liked it. Would look for other venues here in a heartbeat.
