"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.

    Charming Society Hill home from 1818 asks $729K
    An idyllic Society Hill home from 1818 that charms on the corner of 5th and Spruce has just hit the market, with surprisingly spacious interiors. The brick, 19th-century home may look tiny from the outside, but behind the blue front door hides a 1,783 square feet of space that stretches from the front living room to the dining room and kitchen, followed by a landscaped backyard hooked up with an automatic watering system.

If you’re curious about the history of science, you likely know Robert Boyle and his work. But Boyle wasn’t working alone: his published work refers to partners and collaborators. Or he’d publish their response to his ideas. But Robert’s most frequent and influential collaborator—his intellectual partner!—was his sister, Katherine, even though she never appears in his work by name. In this month's episode of Distillations podcast, learn more about Katherine Boyle: http://bit.ly/LadyRanelagh (Image: Chiara Ogan flickr: http://ow.ly/zkI630hPVuU)
