The building is a total mosaic and you have to walk around the entire outside. Then go in and be greeted by wonderful people, then walk around and experience what a community is all about.

Attended the Iguail modern dance production at the Painted Bride. The performance was amazing and the dancers were extremely talented and showed a high level of expertise. Very entertaining.

The Bride's strong suit has always been its programming. Over the years we've seen acts such as Spaulding Gray and Sun Ra. Its latest location (which is NOT shown in the picture) is a wonderful space. The main performance area has no bad views, and the acoustics are great. There is also a gallery area which always has an interesting... More

Saw Sandra Bernhard recently and the tickets were general admission but I have to say the venue was wonderful with not a bad seat in the house. The seats without armchairs were very comfortable. The area is really nice and is called Old City. I will explore this area next time I am in Philly.

The Painted Bride is a non-profit started in 1969 to showcase under-represented cultural art.The acoustics were... More

We normally do a girl’s night in the city and my friend purchased tickets for the Burlesque Nutcracker something I thought I would never go to in my life!

Had to add a review here, as I cannot believe the Bride has never been reviewed before! One of the better, more interesting small theater and music venues in the Philadelphia area. Have been here so many times, and seen some incredible advant garde theater, dance, band, spoken word, etc. over the years. In a town with a huge theater... More
