Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, and is home to many major historical monuments and landmarks. On this intimate walking tour, see most of Philadelphia’s essential sights, all while learning about the City of Brotherly Love’s history from your guide. In the company of a small group, see Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross, Franklin Court, and more, and wind down with a cold beverage in Old City.

We saw a production of Denis and Katya by the Philadelphia Opera at this theatre and it worked very well. The seating is comfortable with ample leg room, the venue is not stuffy and the acoustics seemed good. I would gladly return.

First of all, you cannot miss the electric entrance to this dynamic space. It glimmers on Broad Street, catching your eye with promise. The lobby area is inviting and offers an air of possibility - the past, tradition and future of a titanic force of the creative scene of Philadelphia. I attended the "See and Be Seen" evening of excerpts of plays and musicals in consideration for their 2018/2019 season in November. I felt a real sense of community in entering the theater space. A bold, inventive evening offering audience members real interaction and participation - we all got a voice in helping to create a dynamic season. I have been privy to the NYC theater scene for over 15 years and my standards are high when it comes to performances. The future of PTC, reminds me of NY's Playwrights Horizons, paving the way for bold new works and involving many local Philly artists the chance to shine. With the new artistic director in place, I cannot wait to see the next season in action.

Thank you so much for your comments about our space, the event we held and the “promise” you felt. We are truly excited about all that is possible as we move into our 44th season in 2018-19, and are grateful for the audiences who have supported us! Happy new year!

I went to "See and Be Seen", an evening of excerpts from several plays and musicals which PTC is considering for next season. I thought it was very brave and quite ingenious to ask us what WE thought and what WE would like to see next year. I can't think of any theatre company ever asking the general audience what they want to see. With this type of ingenuity and outreach, I am very excited to see what PTC will brings us as they continue to reshape themselves.

We are glad you enjoyed participating in See and Be Scene! We thought it was a fun way of getting to know our audiences with the lights on :). Can’t wait to announce our upcoming season. Some of the shows will definitely be ones the audience responded to, so we know it was a helpful event for our artistic staff.

We are long-time season subscribers to Phila. Theater Co. In previous years, their plays have generally been outstanding, with few if any duds. Beginning last season and continuing this season (2017-2018), the offerings have gone down in quality to a substantial degree. For example, Mike Daisy's monologue was poor. It would have been appropriate in the corner table of a pub with a few people and a lot of beer, but it was boring in a theater setting. It was two hours long, and if it were better presented, it would have been only a half as long. I dozed off for half an hour, and so did one of our friends with whom we have our subscription. In view of the declining quality of presentations, next year we are going to discontinue our subscriptions and subscribe to another theater company instead.

We are so sorry you did not enjoy Mike Daisey. This year, our subscription season has been paused, as new leadership has just assumed the artistic and management positions. Therefore, PTC is in a transition year and not producing plays. The restructuring of the theatre's business model means that we are keeping the doors open with a variety of offerings from the highly awarded and esteemed new play Small Mouth Sounds (coming in the spring), to very short engagements like Mike Daisey and a Valentine's Day big band concert. We are currently planning our 2018-19 subscription series which will resemble a more traditional PTC season, and hope you'll take a look once we've announced, and reconsider. Thank you for taking the time to register your comments. We don't feel good when our patrons don't enjoy themselves, but we're working hard to find plays for next year that will exceed your expectations!

Attended the Savoy Company's performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore recently and thoroughly enjoyed the comedic operetta. The cast performance was excellent. The venue with its perfect seating and acoustics made it so enjoyable.
