We saw a great show and had amazing seats. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. We bought student rush tickets which they do on Friday nights in an attempt to sell unsold tickets for only $10. It was a steal! Light refreshments were available before the show that were somewhat reasonably priced.

I've been to several plays at this playhouse and I have never been disappointed. The acoustics are great and there are no bad seats. The design is beautiful. I highly recommend visiting this location.

We decided at the last moment to take in a play while visiting friends. What a great theater to check out. It has all of the old charm, and cozy feel. We saw Murder for Two, and found it super entertaining and hilarious at the same time. Although, this play was a couple of months ago, the 2015/16 season line-up... More

My father and I decided to take in a show while visiting Valley Forge and we were not disappointed! This place is clean, modern and orderly. They have restrooms, snacks, drinks and parking close by. The show we went to see (Murder for Two) was fabulous! Would definitely go back if in the area!

For the last seven years of living downtown we have walked to most of our theatre nights out but if you need to drive use the lot that is right across the street. Of the 5 venues that we have season tickets, the PTC and this theatre space are right at the top of my list. PTC puts on polished,... More

My wife and I saw a show put on by the Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus. We very much enjoyed the experience, it was a lot of fun. The venue was very nice, comfortable chairs, more leg room than usual for a theater and the acoustics were first rate. It is also located in a good area of Philadelphia with plenty... More

Arrived at my hotel (Doubletree Philly City Center, see my review) a 7:40 p.m. and decided to give Broad Street the "double 'o.'" (That's the "once over.") I followed some folks, mostly dressed to the nines, into the Kimmel Center where The Danish Quartet was playing. I wasn't in the mood for classical, so I headed back out on Broad... More

Sat in the 5th row. All seats are the same price. Got to see a good production of Outside Mullingar on Thanksgiving weekend. Would recommend this to anyone who loves theater.

Like many arts organizations, PTC has seen its share of financial issues over the last couple of years. However, press descriptions of its situation were at best exaggerated. The Company remains a vital part of the theater scene in Philadelphia and has rich relationships with playwrights (Terrence McNally, among others) and actors which lead to great experiences for its audiences....
