Want to see Broadway shows, but don't want to take the trip up to New York? This post is for you! I'll tell you exactly how you can see a bunch of Broadway shows right here in Philadelphia.
Does traditional theater bore you? Do you not understand why people sing in musicals? Do you feel uncomfortable sitting in a theater for 2 hours? If you answered yes to any (or none) of those questions, fringe theater might be for you!
I love Philadelphia, and I love all of our amazing regional theaters, but… New York City is just 2 hours away… If you ever feel the bright lights of Broadway calling, here are the basics you need to know to make the most out of a trip to NYC.
While there are plenty of great theater options across the Schuylkill in Center City, you don’t actually need to go that far to enjoy a good show—Drexel University has its own theater company right on campus. That's right! Drexel University, the famed engineering school, is full of actors (and quite a number of engineers who can act).
Philadelphia is full of amazing regional non-profit theaters. They may not be Broadway, but they give students the opportunity to see shows for $20 or less!
