The Forrest is one of Philadelphia's premier venues for live theatre, presenting only the very best plays and musicals that Broadway has to offer. In recent years, the Forrest has been honored to host touring productions of Mamma Mia!, The Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Contact, Copenhagen, and more. Built in 1927 by the Shubert Organization, the Forrest has played host to hundreds of theatrical productions over the years, including Broadway musicals, comedies, dramas, Yiddish theatre, dance programs, Gilbert & Sullivan productions, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
