The Forrest is a quintessential "road house," stripped to the bare walls and used primarily by touring theatre and dance companies. It is owned by the Shubert Organization, a company that was started by three brothers from Syracuse, NY about 100 years ago.
About Forrest Theater
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. Still owned and operated by the Shubert Organization for over eight decades, the Forrest Theatre continues to be a shining star in Philadelphia's theatre community.
