Plays and Players Theater is located at 1714 Delancey Place in Center City Philadelphia (off of 17th and 18th Streets, between Spruce & Pine). This is a small, residential street so please take that into consideration when approaching the theater. IT IS NOT A THROUGH STREET.
Please note: Plays & Players is a historic theater over 100 years old. We are currently working on improving the amenities the theater has to offer including the rest rooms and accessibility. Unfortunately the theater does not currently have handicap accessible rest rooms, nor an elevator. Wheel chairs can get into the main theater, but there are no rest rooms on the ground floor.
