Now in its 207th year, the historic Walnut Street Theatre may be America's oldest performance space, but it's on the absolute cutting edge when it comes to bringing Philly the latest blockbuster shows. The exciting 2016 season includes the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway and Hollywood comedy Harvey and Broadway's grown-up prequel to Peter Pan, Peter and the Starcatcher. A heartfelt musical tribute to the friendship between a housewife and a legendary country singer, Always... Patsy Cline features 27 classic songs, including "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces" and "Sweet Dreams." Based on the beloved 1992 Whoopi Goldberg film, the Tony-nominated Broadway musical Sister Act features soaring music from legendary eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors). From winter through spring, make sure your 2016 starts with a (Broadway) bang that continues throughout the year!
