When it comes to Pennsylvania, most visitors think immediately about the historic sites of Gettysburg or Philadelphia or the chocolate-flavored attractions Hershey has to offer, but groups should not rule out the Keystone State as a hotspot for entertainment. With curtains rising in theaters across the state for musicals, concerts and dinner shows, tour planners have countless opportunities to add some razzle-dazzle to their itineraries. National headliners, classic Broadway hits, religious dramas and the grandeur of old-time architecture spark interest among travelers of all ages.
