Theatre Philadelphia Launches Philly Theatre Week

The festival will highlight area theatres with performances, events, panel discussions, and more.

PHILADELPHIA: Theatre Philadelphia has announced the debut of Philly Theatre Week, a 10-day festival. The inaugural lineup, Feb. 8-18, will feature more than 70 organizations, 80 events, and 268 performances.

“Philly Theatre Week is a 10-day celebration of the artists, organizations, and audiences that have made Greater Philadelphia one of the most vibrant theatre regions in the nation,” said executive director Leigh Goldenberg in a statement. “Philly Theatre Week was designed to introduce new audiences to our region’s theatre scene, while encouraging existing theatregoers to step out of their comfort zone and try something new.”

The festival’s events, including performances, workshops, readings, and panels, will take place throughout the city of Philadelphia and its suburbs, in addition to New Jersey and Delaware. Among its many offerings, the festival will run concurrently with the world premiere of John Guare’s Lydie Breeze Trilogy: Cold Harbor at EgoPo Classic Theater and the regional premiere of Heisenberg  at Delaware Theatre Company. Theatre Philadelphia has partnered with TodayTix to offer tickets at a reduced price for the festival.
