"a grand yet intimate piece of musical theater" "a tour-de-force performance from Jamar Williams" "Several actors in PASSING STRANGE are part of the Wilma’s recently formed HotHouse, a troupe devoted to intense physical training and to new ideas about interpretation. This production brims with them." - WHYY #WilmaPassingStrange

    Review: 'Passing Strange,' and grandly
    Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets Runs through Feb. 18 - Bold, boisterous, and bellicose, the Wilma Theater production of the musical "Passing Strange" seems much more real than it did on Broadway 10 years ago. And that's important: What's real or not is at the core of the engrossing musical.

    SEPTA Spruces Up The Underground With Downtown Link
    The future is looking bright and shiny for SEPTA's dingy underground lair. Dubbed "Downtown Link," the project is essentially a contemporary rebranding of Center City's weather-protected underground pedestrian concourse network. If you haven't already, you will soon see large signs for this directional and wayfinding system on the walls of transit stations and the many passages interconnecting those stations throughout Center City.

This would be a good read for any business who are worried about the idea of protected bike lanes. This isn't just a one off. There is a lot of data out there showing that improved bicycle infrastructure (including bike parking & protected bike lanes) is beneficial to local business.

    Business Man Changes his Mind about Separate Bike Lanes! * Average Joe Cyclist
    Business people around the world have tended to oppose separate bike lanes. But here's a turnaround from a Vancouver businessman that many readers will find very encouraging! I have supported separate bike lanes for a long time. I have watched with amazement as businesses in Vancouver have fought tooth and nail against separate bike lanes in Vancouver.

    Dropping from 17.5 million units in 2016 to 17.2 million in 2017 is not causing a panic among automakers. Technological advances mean buyers still have plenty of reasons to check out the Philadelphia Auto Show. - Scott Sturgis, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

    Theater in Sketch: Previewing TIME REMEMBERED (IRC)
    Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium's presentation of Jean Anouilh's Time Remembered runs February 6-March 4, 2018. I've been sitting in on some of the absurdist theater company's rehearsals, sketching and liking what I see. We settle into a country side manor where unusual personalities come out of the wood work, and surround an indecisive prince.

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster which encouraged employees to “stick to your job,” which encouraged workers not to drift from job to job because their dedicated work was vital to the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.
