Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Since it began in 1973, the Wilma has been known for theater with a distinctively European, often avant-garde sensibility, along with a tremendous visual panache. Still led by Blanka Zizka, one of the company’s founders, season offerings here will likely include devised work alongside plays, and familiar works (Hamlet, a few years ago) getting a fresh spin. Tom Stoppard’s plays are a specialty, often getting exceptional productions. The best of the Wilma is intellectually rigorous and bracing—but for some, it can provoke head-scratching. Their 300-seat theater is one of Philadelphia’s best venues in which to take in a show.
