    Twenty four restaurants, markets and stores were closed temporarily by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15. Inspectors were busy in the last two weeks citing food establishments for a myriad of offenses. It's fall and while leaves are dropping from trees, finding them on cheese is never a good thing.

    Alongside legendary Philly stalwarts like Sarcone's and Kaplan's, new bread bakeries are popping up like so many brioche buns left to proof. If the humble loaf is in retreat nationally from the double-whammy of carb-phobia and gluten intolerance, Philadelphia shows little sign of retreat.

Exile for 18 months, then back home to South Philly

Read about the future of Theatre Exile and our plans for a new space on 13th and Reed!

Quick, creative thinking saved the day. If all papers get signed, as Block expected them to by Friday, July 28, Theatre Exile will be in exile only 18 months or so and can then move back to its digs at 1340 S. 13th St.

This article has 2 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

Saying the lease gets signed, Theatre Exile moves to offices at Our Lady of Mount Carmel at 2319 S. Third. Rocky country, yes, but it’s also quite the South Philly fine-arts office park down there, with 1812 Productions, 11th Hour Theatre Company, and the Leah Stine Dance Company as cotenants.

And Theatre Exile’s temporary yurt, or theater, will be (at least for the 2017-2018 season) the Latvian Society of Philadelphia at 531 N. Seventh St., where EgoPo and other nimble outfits often perform.

    Exile for 18 months, then back home to South Philly
    Read about the future of Theatre Exile and our plans for a new space on 13th and Reed! It has been a stressful year for Theatre Exile, a year in the life of one of Philly's vigorous, agile neighborhood theaters. As A.D.
