In three words: riveting! Powerful! Engaging! To say more might be a spoiler. I am a subscriber. This play, for me, has been the best so far this season. The time flew by. Incredible staging!

Warning: a lot of swearing and a little nudity.

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.

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!

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

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