English: The Walnut Street Theatre at 825 Walnut Street on the corner of S. 9th Street in the Washington Square West neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the oldest continuously operating theatre in the English-speaking world and the oldest in the United States. The theatre was built in 1809 for the Circus of Pepin and Breschard under the name The New Circus, and was designed by Willimam Strickland in the Classical Revival style. The theatre has also been called the Olympic and the American; it was first called the Walnut Street in 1820, but that name was not used continuously. The theatre was renovated in 1828 by John Haviland, in 1903 by Willis Hale and in 1920 by William Harold Lee.
