I have seen many Broadway type productions at this venue and not once has it disappointed. I love the balcony box seats and they are well worth the extra money for the views. If you can't make it to Broadway this is a excellent substitute!

We've been to the Kimmel Center for quite a few shows. It's a Christmas time staple attending Peter Nero and the Philly Pops. Although Peter has retired it is still quite a show. Great sound, respectful place.

To hear Philadelphia Orchestra and see Kimmel Center is a highlight of visiting this beautiful city. Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin did a perfect job when conducting the orchestra which played Barber Adagio for Strings, Op. 11 among other great music.

Kimmel Center is an amazing building and the concert hall is beautiful with perfect acoustics.

What a perfect night it was. Always to be remembered.

By chance I remarked that they were performing Don Giovanni at the Kemmel centre. Could obtain easily a balcony ticket on the day of the performance. Classic venue, gooed performers, nice location. Ideal intermezzo during a business week.
