Share in the tremendous joy of live performances in our 21/22 season.

It is a redefining moment for us as we begin a multi-year celebration of our 50th anniversary, announcing not only a new season but a new identity that proudly encompasses all that we offer to the University of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia region. This exciting new chapter honors our legacy, strengthens our connection to Penn and begins a transformative future.

Welcome back for live performance.

If there is anything the past year has reinforced, it is our passion for live performance. Simply put, it is core to our mission. We are proud to have kept artists performing live on the virtual stage, bringing you numerous world premieres and debuts as one of the few arts organizations in the city to offer real-time, digital performances. But, we are eager to return to our theatres for a season with the best artists, from iconic legends to rising stars, featuring many U.S. and Philadelphia premieres. We showcase beloved dance companies, jazz greats, a brand-new, family-friendly cirque series and even an innovative, site-specific work outside.

As we safely return to the theatre, we also eagerly look ahead to the excitement of our commemorative 50th anniversary season, for we have much to celebrate and can’t wait to do so with you, both this year and for the next 50. As the first phase in our celebration, we are thrilled to announce our new brand and identity, Penn Live Arts. » Read more

Welcome back. We’ve missed you and can’t wait to experience the start of our next 50 years, together.
