SOCIETY HILL PLAYHOUSE - PA
Society Hill Playhouse is located in the heart of the Society Hill District (just 1/2 block off the "hot" South Street Corridor). This is theatre for people who don’t like theatre ... or who think they don’t. Housed in the historic David Garrick Hall.
This century-old building with its Victorian pressed tin walls and ceilings presents good, entertaining shows. No highbrow, high-falutin, artsy stuff here. Although most of the productions are new comedies or East Coast premieres, these shows are not only accessible, but they also reach out and pull you right in, sometimes literally. Shows like the long-running “Lafferty’s Wake” involve the audience; others let you sit back and enjoy the laughs.
Deen Kogan and husband, Jay, launched Society Hill Playhouse in 1960 as Philadelphia’s “off-Broadway” theatre for contemporary American and European playwrights. Gradually, it developed a niche in populist comedies, and Nunsense, scheduled for six weeks, ran for ten years. The Red Room cabaret on the first floor seats 99 - and the main stage located on the second floor seats 223.
