Forrest Theatre History

If you're ever around the Philly area, one of the places to stop right after you stop marveling at the Liberty Bell is Forrest Theatre, a top-tier venue that has been around for a long time putting on one amazing show after another. Not too many places can boast that they've been around since Babe Ruth was swatting balls out of Yankee Stadium and Charlie Chaplin was in his heyday, but Forrest Theatre has a lot more than just an amazing history.

Though the Theatre has undergone many different manifestations in its day, these days it's dedicated to bringing the best of the best live shows to the stage all year long, helping to make it one of the staples of the local community and a beacon for talented entertainers. Once you're there in the stands alongside your fellow music fans, you'll be glad that you're not anywhere else, as here is a venue that tends to live up to its enormous reputation.


Forrest Theatre Events

Whether it's Jersey Boys, The Book of Mormon or any of the other top-tier shows and musicals that you might find at Forrest Theatre, this is just one of those venues that you need to turn up at once in a while if you love live music played by world-class artists. Sure, there are plenty of options for entertainment these days, but you're never going to recreate the live musical experience from no matter how hard you try. The list of musicals set to come through this venue is nothing short of astounding, giving you plenty of opportunities to be a part of the action as some of the best shows around rock the stage for a highly anticipated musical event.


Philadelphia, PA

Though Philly often gets left out of the spotlight thanks to prominent northeast cities like Boston and New York, there is no denying the legacy that Philly has, nor the thriving entertainment scene that it has to this day. It even was the breeding ground for Benjamin Franklin, the man who is arguably the greatest mind in American history thanks to his jaw-dropping commitment to politics, diplomacy and inventions of all kinds. The very spirit of Franklin is exuded by this one-of-a-kind Eastern city, and you'll see that type of creativity whenever you make it out to Forrest Theatre to see some great entertainers do their thing. Philly was even one of the few cities that can boast being founded before the before 1700.

OK, so quite a bit has changed since the early days of the European settlement in North America, but it goes to show just how rich of a tradition that Philly has. One look at this town and you'll understand what made the original settlers call it home, and it doesn't get any better than mixing with the locals at a top-tier venue like Forrest Theatre. With a steady stream of unbelievable acts that come to the stage, there is nothing better than actually being there so you can see it all up close and personal.


Forrest Theatre Seating Layout

Whether you're on the right, left or somewhere in the center, you're bound to get a great show if you make it out to the Forrest Theatre. No, we're not talking about governmental impasses and political theater; we're talking about the elegant seating arrangement of the Forrest Theatre in Philadelphia, PA. There isn't a bad seat in the house, which is something that you really won't understand until you actually make it out to see it for yourself. Once you're there watching one of your favorite musicians, the last thing you'll be thinking about is your seat, however, as you'll be jumping out of it all too often from one ballad to the next as great entertainers bring the house down.

With a great crowd from night to night, this is just one of those places that you absolutely need to be a part of sooner or later if you love big-time concert events, and one look at the schedule and you'll see plenty of prominent concert events that you know you'll want to see up close and personal.


Forrest Theatre Trivia

Did you know that Chicago played at Forrest Theatre back in the mid-1970s?

We all know that one look at the schedule and you'll see some of the very best musicals around, but that isn't something that just started recently. Long before Richard Gere and Catherine Zeta-Jones helped Chicago win an Oscar on the big screen, Chicago was playing at Forrest Theatre. Even before that, though, great musicals like The Music Man and Funny Girl came to the stage and gave musical lovers some big-time thrills, cementing Forrest Theatre as one of the staples of the local entertainment scene in the process. Once you're there in the stands, you'll be glad that you're not sitting at home.
