    A very nice experience. The seats are a little tight for a person as tall as me but I had an aisle seat this time curtesy of my wife and that helped.

    Great shows here but they keep it a bit warm. If you're prone to falling asleep in womb-like temps drink some coffee before-hand.

    Eh...I wasn't too impressed with "In The Heights " and even less impressed with the tight and warm theater itself.

    Have plans to see "The Prescott Method" at the Independence Studio? Be sure to come hungry because you'll leave full literally and figuratively! Best of all, this play is written by a Philadelphian!

    Park at Will's Eye/Jefferson on 9th between walnut and spruce. Just a block walk and no line.

    From Barrymores to Hepburns, some of the greatest actors in history have graced the stage. It also currently operates the original rope, pulley, and sandbag system that was used nearly 2 centuries ago

    Right now it has "Fiddler on the Roof". It's really great and I highly recommend it.
