Philadelphia is served by the PA Turnpike (I-276), I-76, I-476, I-95, US-1 and the New Jersey Turnpike. Philadelphia is conveniently located in the middle of the Northeast Corridor, 100 miles south of New York, 133 miles north of Washington, D.C., and 55 miles from Atlantic City. By car, the city is just two hours from New York City, 90 minutes from Baltimore, three hours from Washington D.C. and about an hour from Lancaster County, Atlantic City and the New Jersey shore via major highways. More than 63 million people – approximately a quarter of the U.S. population – live within a 5.5-hour drive from Philadelphia.


Street parking is available in the vicinity of our venue as well as a surface lot at 20th & Sansom, and a parking garages across the street and one block west of the theater at 2102 Sansom Street. Weekend street parking is often difficult to find, so if you plan to park on the street be sure to allow extra time.
