New on Avenue of the Arts
The Avenue of the Arts is Philadelphia’s public avenue – an elongated piazza lined with magnificent buildings. At Walnut there’s the ornate Park Hyatt at the Bellevue, formerly known as the Bellevue-Stratford. North of City Hall is the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. All of these are more than a century old and National Historic Landmarks. Recent additions to the Avenue include The Wilma Theater, and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.
And now, the Avenue of the Arts acquires another destination: the Philadelphia Theatre Company. This Sunday, October 21st, beginning at 1PM, the PTC’s new home in the Suzanne Roberts Theatre will be celebrated with a ribbon cutting and open house. This event is free and open to the public. From 2:00 to 4:30 you’ll find tours and entertainment. Stay until 7pm when the marquee is lit.
