Enjoyed a wonderful concert by Joan Baez here! The venue is absolutely fabulous! I don’t think there’s a bad seat in the house. The acoustics were wonderful. I would definitely like to rake in more concerts here!

The Kimmel Center is excellent for any of the performances they have. The best would be the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Spent time at the Kimmel Center while in town. They usually have concerts and Broadway shows there but this particle visit they were having an indoor flea market. There were plenty of vendors there with plenty of antiques and paintings for sale.

I would call the box office the day of the show to make sure there are tickets available and have them hold the tickets for you at the will call window. Shows sell out fast and well in advance.

You're going to want to call the box office directly to get an answer to that question. Every subscription series differs... The Kimmel Center Box Office is open daily from 10am - 6pm. The Call Center is open daily from 9am... More

To be honest...with a show like WICKED, you would want a full view of the stage. Not sure what areas of the stage you won't be able to see. Go online, view seating chart to see which areas are blocked. Good luck... More
