I brought my adult daughter here to watch a show and it was great! It’s a nice smaller sized venue and they sell beer, wine, and mixed drinks in addition to water and soda. We had balcony seats and had to walk up a ton...More

This smallish theatre is excellent for the Curtis Opera Company. It is intimate for you to see everything and and feel part of these productions. There are three levels of seating. I prefer the first balcony in the center, rather than then floor.

If you enjoy classical music, the Philadelphia Orchestra is world class. The concert hall is perfect. Acoustics are great. The performance on March 10th was one of the best concerts I have had the privilege of hearing.

Don't judge this book by its inside cover. The glass-panel encasement is striking and the theaters are aesthetically pleasing both in sight and sound. The lobby slash common area is almost as interesting as a high school cafeteria. To go to all of that trouble...More

The Kimmel Center houses several venues and is the premiere venue for classical music as well as jazz in Philadelphia. The building is very attractive and located right on Broad Street in the center of town. There are several good nearby restaurants and parking garages.

This is a beautiful building with great acoustics for listening to the Philadelphia Orchestra. The seating is spacious and comfortable and even our relatively cheap seats had a great view.

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
