“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.

    Philly cabaret artist offers neighborly homage to Mr. Rogers
    "When I was very young, I had a dog that I loved very much. Her name is Mitzi. She got to be old, and she died," confessed Fred Rogers in the 1970 "Death of a Goldfish" episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." "When she died, I cried."

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.
