I've seen quite a few of EgoPo's productions and have never been disappointed. The shows are always of the highest quality and, unlike a decent amount of classic theater, are transformed in a way that make them fresh and tangible for a modern audience. I know when I go to see a play there that I will be in for... More

EgoPo, hands down, puts on the most captivating theatre in Philadelphia. They have impressed me with their acting, staging, and directing for the last four years. Any show seen at EgoPo is one you will remember. They take classic titles we've all heard and make them fresh. Subscribe to their season you wont be disappointed

Death of a Salesman was fantastic!!!! EgoPo's productions keep getting better. The acting was top notch and the directing was great. The theater (They are using the Latvian Society this year) was small so I can not think that there is a bad seat in the place. There is plenty of free parking on 7th north of Spring garden. This...

EgoPo Classic Theatre was my first dose of Philadelphia theatre ("Marat/Sade") and I've been hooked ever since. Affordable, bold, fresh interpretations of classics, well-known and obscure. Physical specificity makes this company refreshing; their attention to the physical self (hense their name) makes their productions stand out and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'm a fan.

We have been subscribing to Ego Po Theatre for the past two seasons. Originally from New Orleans they have settled in Philadelphia and put on productions that are unique. Each year they choose a theme and pick plays that revolve around that idea. This past year was vaudeville. The prices are inexpensive and the hard work that the staff does... More

EgoPo has been one of the best theater's I have ever attended in Philly. As a college student near the Philadelphia area I make sure to come out to Philly to see as much art I can, whether it be murals, or music, or theatrical performances. I went to see EgoPo's Life and Death of Harry Houdindi at Plays and... More

Egopo Classic Theater consistently puts out some of the highest caliber productions in the city. Their shows are challenging and provocative as stand-alone productions, but when you consider that they produce full seasons on one overall theme, Egopo has to be regarded as a leader in the Philly theatre scene. Keep it up, Egopo!

EgoPo offers terrific productions that are always entertaining! I can't wait for this season's productions relating to the American Vaudeville era.
