PHILADELPHIA, PA — Theatre Philadelphia announces the return of Philly Theatre Week featuring 100+ theatrical performances and events across the region between March 23 to April 2, 2023.
“Philly Theatre Week is always such an exciting time of the year for theatre-goers,” said Theatre Philadelphia Executive Director LaNeshe Miller-White. ” From comedies to musicals, and traditional productions to a site-specific show about beds that is performed IN a bed, there really is something for everyone. Theatre Philadelphia has moved to a pay-what-you-can model for this year’s Theatre Week in order to ensure access for all to the performances. It’s a great opportunity for someone to try theater for the first time, or to try a new company or type of show.”
The eleven day festival will celebrate artists, organizations, and audiences that have made Greater Philadelphia one of the most vibrant theatre regions in the nation. Audiences will have an opportunity to try something new from 50 events being offered from 41 different companies and artists. There are over a 100 opportunities for audiences to experience. It includes productions, readings, exclusive pre-sales and special events in Philadelphia, Delaware, South Jersey, Bucks County and the Main Line and Western Suburbs.
Miller-White added, “Pay what you can lets us reach out to diverse audiences around the city and bring in the next generation of theatregoers looking to give theatre a try. It also gives repeat theatregoers and theatre supporters the opportunity to donate and support the work they are seeing based on their own capabilities and how moved they were. It is truly a win-win.”
The annual festival is one of the largest signature festivals in Philadelphia and it expands by an extra day this year. Also new this year, all tickets are pay what you can – to encourage and welcome new audiences to discover theatre while encouraging returning patrons to make donations and invest in our theatre community. Each company has provided some information about how ticket sales support their work.
Audiences are invited out early for a special free preview event in the Hamilton Garden at the Kimmel Cultural Campus on Monday, March 20th at 6:00pm. Tickets for the preview and all participating shows/events are on sale and available at www.phillytheatreweek.com.
