“Oldest theatre in the US”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

The Walnut Street Theatre has a regular season of Broadway shows and also carries a nice variety of shows. It's a beautiful theatre and very historic. Take time to walk around when you're there for a show. I also recommend not driving here. Take a cab or walk.

“The Theatrical experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

Oldest continuing theater in US. Plays in the large theater venue and, also, in a smaller intimate theater setting. Children's plays. Theater workshops.

“Great perfomances”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

I always like the performances here. The major dislike is the lack of leg room. All seats are fine but I prefer the first 12 rows in orchestra.
