Went to see Agatha Christie's mousetrap. We got tix late and still managed great seats in the front of the balcony. The venue was great, the show was amazining and the cast incredible. A true gem and the oldest theater in the country.

As the country's oldest theater, you must go to the Walnut Theater. We just loved the King and I and are anxious to see Mousetrap. Great performances in a wonderful old theater.

A great place to see outstanding shows -- small enough to feel comfortable but large enough for great performances.

Amerlica's oldest theater in continuous use. Modern inside, and most productions are very good to excellent.

If I had to pay the asking price of $95+tax/service fees I woud've been disappointed but at 50% off with the code our concierge gave us, it was a great event

I bought mine online, but a Google search gave box office hours as 10-6 every day except Sunday. If there is a performance on Sunday, it is open 10 until performance. Box office is open later on performance days.
