OK, so most of us aren’t thinking about fall already. But when it comes to live entertainment, it almost always better to be the early worm.
Starting in September and running through July 2014, the Walnut Street Theatre will celebrate its 205th anniversary mainstage season with a befittingly stellar line-up of award-winning shows, which includes three spectacular musicals, a comedic classic and one gripping contemporary drama:
In The Heights (Sept. 3-Oct. 20)
Elf (Nov. 5-Jan. 5)
Other Desert Cities (Jan. 14-March 2)
Arsenic and Old Lace (March 11–April 27)
How To Succeed in Business Without Trying (May 13–July 13)
Should you be interested in seeing more than one of the above productions, you may want to consider investing in a subscription now for the 2013/2014 season. Not only do prices start as low as $95 dollars, but you’ll be saving up to 77 percent off regular ticket prices and ensuring that you get a decent seat. Single tickets on the other hand, range anywhere between $10-$95 and won’t go on sale till August.
Random interesting fact about the WST: besides being the oldest theatre in the nation, it also happens to have more subscribers than any other theatre company in the world—a total of over 55 thousand. Pretty damn impressive.
