What we're about

Come one, come all! This is a Meetup with people who enjoy the theater. We invite you to join us where we can go cry together Les Miserables or talk about the ending of Cats, be mystified by the helicopter in Miss Saigon, or sing along to Phantom of the Opera. Our group consists of those who would love to go to watch Theatre and Broadway shows. We will also go to coffee shops and eat before or after most of our excursions. We will attend theater events in and around Philadelphia including local, regional, and professional theater. We will occasionally take short day trips to nearby places such as Princeton, NJ, Lancaster, PA, Washington, D.C., Wilmington, DE, and of course to Broadway in NYC. PLEASE NOTE: You are responsible for purchasing your own tickets, but details and approximate ticket costs will always be posted in each individual Meetup and your organizers are always happy to help if you need assistance. If we go out to eat, you are also responsible for paying for your own food. We will try to have some kind of event every month. Please commit to attending the event once you RSVP. Cancellations or no-shows without prior notification will automatically remove you from the group as we will be making arrangements for eating out, etc. which require accurate numbers.
