The 10-day festival will showcase the region's vibrant and diverse theater scene.
In total there will be 80 events and 268 performances. Tickets for each will either be free, $15 or $30.
Philly Theatre Week will include world and regional premieres, Black History month-themed events, Valentine's Day-themed events, classic theater, physical theater, academic and community performances, and much more.
Events and performances will take place in Philadelphia, the surrounding suburbs and New Jersey.
“We wanted to make a big and impactful statement about the importance of theater in our city and region. Like Philly Beer Week, Center City Restaurant Week or Philly Tech Week, we wanted to have a festival that celebrated theater alongside our city's other flagship events that are nationally known and recognized," said Leigh Goldenberg, Theatre Philadelphia's Executive Director.
