The Arden, located in Old City, is a small venue with excellent sight lines and shows sure to entertain. Discounts at area restaurants are offered with ticket stubs. If you are in Philadelphia before June 24, check out Gypsy.

Wow! what a treat! to see this amazing, innovative, delightful, clever, entertaining "American Revolution!" The actors are superb, the dialogue funny and witty...we didn't want it to end. It is a short run...only until June 11....you really don't want to miss it.

My friend and I teach Shakespeare, so we ventured out to the Arden to watch A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was perfection. The theater is fun, funky, and comfortable, and the actors were second to none. The entire experience was phenomenal.

My girlfriend and I went and saw Stupid _____ Bird here and it was awesome. Really nice and clean. Seats were comfortable and it was really fun! It was the first play I have ever been too and it was a good place to go.

Terrific blend of new & standard productions never disappoints. Top rate casts in "no bad seats" venue. And they support young artists while providing high school students with opportunity to see live performances. I am always thrilled to watch their expressions of appreciation. Something for...More
