We attended graduation ceremonies at the Kimmel Center, and found it to be an excellent facility for the large crowd. The auditorium was very comfortable, the acoustics wonderful, and the sightlines excellent. The lobby was well suited for the post graduation reception.

Went here for our niece's med school graduation. This place is huge!! The only downer is that there really aren't a lot of bathrooms and there are non on the main floor. There's a Starbucks (if needed) just down the street.

Small theater with great stage view no matter where you sit. Excellent acoustics. Tickets reasonably priced. Parking and great restaurants within easy walking distance. Beautiful and safe part of the city.

Wonderful venue to see a show. Smallish in size but that is a good thing in my opinion. I'll be back again for sure.

We sat in the next to last row of the third tier! The sound was excellent, the view was terrific, the seats were comfortable, and the price was right. The ushers were gracious and encouraged us to take a tour of the Center, too.

The Perelman Auditorium is a lovely theater in this center and hosts many shows. The Verizon Hall , home of the Philadelphia Orchestra has great acoustics. Interesting season ticket packets.

Recently, on May 4th, we attended the first concert of the Festival. It was great. Especially, a member of Rachmaninoff family was in attendance, sponsored part of the festival. It was a gift to all the attendees.

To be honest...with a show like WICKED, you would want a full view of the stage. Not sure what areas of the stage you won't be able to see. Go online, view seating chart to see which areas are blocked. Good luck... More
There are easy ways to avoid the extra fees. Pick up tickets at the box office/will call. The fees for this level of performance in a venue of this stature are consistent and frequently below like venue. Also be sure if you are purchasing tickets on line that you are not at ticket seller site but the the official Kimmel Center site. Price are universally high for this level performance but the excessive add on fees can be avoided. Best regards
