“It is a show about whether and in what way do we need irony right now as a political or social approach. You will hopefully learn more about the kinds of drag you are doing every day to get through your long life. What audiences — gay and straight — will get is a good time, a bit of healing and a strong drink.” - John Jarboe You Can Never Go Down The Drain is now playing through July 1. #mxrogers #neighbeardhood
“Drag and cabaret is a space for permission, right? Let’s be loose, let’s really be ourselves by being someone else. I think Mr. Rogers is a space for permission of feeling.,” - John Jarboe Read more of the WHYY interview at the link below. You Can Never Go Down the Drain is now running through July 1.

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.
We are pleased to announce that The Wilma Theater is one of the recipients of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage's 2018 project grants. The grant will fund THERE, an ensemble-devised work, led by Blanka Zizka, which adapts Lebanese American poet Etel Adnan’s book-length poem 'There: In the Light and the Darkness of the Self and of the Other' and contemplates existential questions of personal and community identity and conflict, in an environment created by Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba. The work will premiere as part of the 2019 Fringe Festival. #PewArtsGrants
