Home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, the center boasts two major auditoriums. It hosts many other non-orchestra events. Acoustics are near-perfect, the great Verizon Hall is spectacular.

A postponed show from a month ago - but Crystal was worth the wait. Theater was full of happy patrons. Great show as always - glad we waited and got to see it. The man is a genius of comedy and his shows are always GREAT

Even if your seat is in nosebleed, if you're there for the music there isn't a bad seat in the house! In fact, the sound is better up there! Excellent venue for a concert or stage performance!

This is the home of the Philadelphia Orchestra as well as many other arts organizations. There are three exhibition spaces, Verizon Hall, very large and with an amazing organ, Perelman Theater, more suitable for opera and drama, and a newly improved small room, Hamilton Garden, which is situated on top of the Perlman Theater.

This is a nice older theatre near the center of town. Has a multitude of professional talent and shows throughout the year. Make sure you check your seats well as some have poor site lines, otherwise its a good place to see a show.

Home of the Philadelphia Orchestra, one of the premier orchestras in the world. I am giving Verizon Hall high marks based upon being in the right place in the hall. I have attended many concerts there and three days ago heard Britten's War Requiem from seat J-114. J-114 is my favorite seat, orchestra left perhaps a third of the way... More
