We went to hear Joe Biden speak. The seats were comfy and had a reasonable amount of space. The interior was especially beautiful too.

You know how, if you're 6' or taller, your knees are crushed up against the seat in front of you on an airplane? That's exactly how the seats at Kimmel Center are. Hope I never have to go there again.

The acoustics of the Kimmel Center were superb. We experienced the Philharmonic with both the full and partial orchestra. It is a concert hall that, truly, must be experienced!.

We attended the Kimmel Center to see Renee Flemming. It’s such a romantic place, the interior is absolutely gorgoeous. Recommend getting there early as bottle necking happens with a crowd!

Have been there many times ballet, opera, Christmas Nutcracker you will not be disappointed. Have also heard the Vienna boys choir. Take the children over the holidays they will always remember their visit there. I always get balcony seats. Beautiful building.

The main concert hall, Verizon Hall, is a beautiful structure architecturally imitating the curves of a violin in the balcony areas. The acoustics have been tweaked to yield wonderful sound. The Philadelphia Orchestra deserves its reputation as one of the world's best. It is under...More

So many young talents performed at this particular event. A beauty to experience a joyful occasion, especially given so much strife in our world. The concert hall itself provides spacious comfortable seats and excellent views of the stage.

Philadelphia doesn't show up on many lists of US cities known for theater, but the city makes all sorts of shows very accessible right in center city. Kimmel is for Opera and Orchestral shows. I always love going to see the Philly Orchestra.

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
