The Neighborhood & Things To Do

There are several fine restaurants near the 2000 block of Sansom Street that support New City Stage and make for an excellent before or after meal when attending a show. We sometimes offer ticket and meal deals, which will be featured on our home page and in our program. Here are a few of our recommendations…

Please support our season sponsor!

Oh! Shea's Pub
1907 Sansom Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103

A traditional Irish pub with friendly service, generous portions and tasty appetizers and bar food served fast. The perfect place for just drinks or a sit down dinner before or after the show, Oh! Shea's has been sponsoring New City productions since 2008, including some of our opening night festivities. You can often find our cast and crew hanging out here after a show, so please don't hesitate to say hello!

During the day this park is alive with skateboarders, sunbathers and dog walkers; at night couples stroll on romantic walks on their way to a show or dinner. The natural sanctuary of lovely trees and green grass is surrounded by one of the city's most upscale eating, shopping, and residential districts. Renamed Rittenhouse Square in 1825 for esteemed clockmaker and astronomer David Rittenhouse, this spot is the ideal place to take refuge from modern distractions. A few steps down the path at any of the six gates, and the noise and traffic of the city seem to disappear. Home to a vibrant and exciting performing arts renaissance, New City Stage Company is proud to call Rittenhouse Square home. Both our theatre space and administrative offices are located in this lovely district, in addition to many of our season sponsors.
