“Small theater with cutting edge plays”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Seats are comfortable, ticket prices are reasonable and plays are not run of the mill retreads. The theater is located next to the Doubletree Hotel on Broad St. and is close to many good restaurants.

“Angels in America is amazing!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Part 1 and 2 of this play are quite long, but the experience was well worth the time. There were so many brilliant storytellers on that stage. We spent over 7 hours at the Wilma in the past two days. The seats in this theatre are very comfortable which made the experience even better. Brilliant!

“A moidern theater on The Avenue of the Arts”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We just saw a production of Angels in America in this fine modern theater just cater- corner from the Kimmel Center on The Avenue of the Arts. It is a a medium sized theater designed so that every seat has an unblocked view of the stage. Its sound is good and hearing devices are available for the hard of hearing. Most important, the production was extremely managed and was a treat. I would highly recommend that theater lovers take advantage of its next productions throughout the coming months and years

“Edgy, dynamic theatre”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

The Wilma Theatre is well worth more than one visit. Their choices are usually
edgy, dynamic with wonderful sets. The theatre, itself, is very comfortable and they
have excellent customer service. If one subscribes then free parking is a wonderful
option.

“Excellent Dark Comedy”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I support the Wilma Theatre for their dark comedies that move people. My favorite is "The Vibrator Play." Great seating anywhere in the theatre.
