The Walnut Street Theatre, located at the corner of Ninth and Walnut Streets, is America's oldest theatre, a National Historic Landmark and the State Theatre of Pennsylvania. Since its opening in 1809, world-famous stars such as Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn and Marlon Brando, have performed on its stage. Many of the greatest works in American theatre premiered there, including A Streetcar Named Desire, A Raisin in the Sun, and Neil Simon's first Broadway play, Come Blow Your Horn.
