What is Philly Theatre Week?
The 10-day festival for all things stage-centric in Philadelphia is a collection of 75 shows, play readings, discussion panels, concerts and networking events happening around the Greater Philadelphia region. Offerings include musicals, straight dramas, comedies, concerts and more.
When is Philly Theatre Week?
Philly Theatre Week 2018 runs from February 8 to 18, with events happening across the region at various times every day.
How much is Philly Theatre Week and how do I get tickets?
You could think of Philly Theatre Week as an event similar to Philadelphia Restaurant Week, because you’re essentially getting a buttload of theater for a set, three-tier pricing option: most shows cost either $15, $30 or—best of all—$0. Tickets can be purchased or RSVP’d at phillytheatreweek.com. In some cases, Philly Theatre Week events include productions that are part of a local companies’ regular season, so specially priced tickets are limited. That means you need to act fast if you want to nab discounted entry.
What should I see at Philly Theatre Week?
With more than 75 different shows on the roster, picking what to see can be tricky. We offer some of the top must-sees below.
