Go here for any production and you will be happy. Best theater in Philadelphia by far. Actors are well cast and sets and everything is as good as any Broadway produced show. Go.

The Arden Theatre consistently produces excellent work! I've enjoyed numerous shows over the years and am always impressed with not only the performances but also the imagination and execution of the staging, set design, wardrobe and direction. Truly worth a visit.

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.
