The Summer Intensive with begins this June with Artistic Director Blanka Zizka and Company Member Justin Jain. Delve into the work of the Wilma HotHouse Company --> https://goo.gl/1nAins

    HotHouse Intensive: A New Breath
    Temple University Musical Theater BFA student José Raúl Mangual took part in a HotHouse Intensive this winter. He documented the experience through daily reflections and photos that will be shared as blog posts as we prepare for the Summer Intensive. I felt like today's class was the first that I saw, without seeking, the parallels between exercises.

Happy National Memo Day! Our holdings are brimming with memorandums from a variety of government agencies. Memorandums are written messages which can document anything: the installation of a new water fountain, organizational changes, policies, and much more. Featured here is a memorandum related to the archaeological investigation at El Morro, which is part of the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico. This memo details the work that has already been performed and also includes photographic attachments to document progress made on the dig. Check out the rest of this memo here: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/40304916. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing philadelphia.archives@nara.gov.

Is there anywhere in Philly to securely park a small 10" moving truck overnight?

  • From the sounds of it, you want to pay an indoor garage to do so. there are two in the 1500 block of Latimer that I know of, plenty of others in town too.
