    Philadelphia Struggles to Balance Historic Preservation and Equity
    As Jared Brey points out, there's been little perceived need to protect existing structures in a city that's been desperate for development for decades. Now, that may be changing, but making sure historic preservation respects communities of color and does not become a tool of gentrification remains a challenge.

"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

    'Passing Strange' at the Wilma: Updated, rocking tale of Youth's quest for identity
    Stew and Heidi Rodewald's "Passing Strange" at the Wilma Theater tells an often-told tale: The self-glorifying, distinctly unheroic artist-hero questing for his identity through changes of scene, sexual encounters that stop short of love, and the supposedly redemptive act of creation.

"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.

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.
