RENT THE PRINCE
The Prince resides in the historic Midtown Theater at 1412 Chestnut Street, on the Avenue of the Arts. In 1999 the facility was completely renovated creating one of the best theater spaces in Philadelphia with enviable acoustics and full wheelchair accessibility in all the public areas.
There are three separate spaces available in the Prince Music Theater as well as the large, party-friendly lobby with its original Al Hirschfeld mural entitled “American Musical Theater.”
