The Suzanne Roberts Theatre is among the newer venues on Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts. Opened in 2007, the venue impressed Philly audiences from the get go with a flashy neon sign dawning its name over the front entrance. Inside the the auditorium, spacious seating and modern, curvy designs are the work of renowned local architect Kieran Timberlake.
Of course, the Suzanne Roberts Theatre’s main draw is its programing. Home of the Philadelphia Theatre Company, this stage has its own dedicated team consistently producing imaginative and celebrated shows.
Offering Broadway-caliber work from local and acclaimed playwrights, content from the PTC ranges from reimaginings of classic characters like Sherlock Holmes to contemporary political tales like the recent production of Disgraced.
Located on Broad Street, a destination of Philadelphia culture in itself, the Suzanne Roberts Theatre is an easy, ten-minute walk from the Independent Hotel. The same stretch of road is home to entertainment champions including the Wilma Theatre, Merriam Theatre and Kimmel Center.
