It’s a hike to New York City, but you have a hankering to see a Broadway show—so what do you do? Take a quick trip to Center City Philadelphia and check out the Walnut Street Theatre—America’s Oldest Theater and a National Historic Landmark. Having stood at the corner of Ninth and Walnut Streets in Philadelphia for two hundred years, this bustling theater has seen many classics, from A Streetcar Named Desire to Wicked, and a lot of famous faces, like Marlon Brando, Sydney Poitier, and Audrey Hepburn to name a few.
Right now, get tickets for Oliver! (quick, it's only on stage until January 10, 2010), or try to score seats for the May 18 – July 18, 2010 run of Fiddler on the Roof. For more information about these shows and the fantastic productions running in between, plus the special Walnut Street Theatre for Kids show schedule, visit the Walnut Street Theatre website.
