    Congressional Districts Map Proposal | Governor Tom Wolf
    On February 15, 2018, Governor Tom Wolf submitted a map to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that combined features of legislative submissions but, according to an analysis by a gerrymandering expert, was statistically more fair than the Republican leaders' submission. The governor's map is fair, is constitutional, and complies with the court's order.

    The lost work of Louis Kahn
    Louis Kahn is considered one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. But most people connect Kahn with the Yale University Art Gallery or the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, while Philadelphians are more familiar with his modern homes and public housing projects scattered throughout the region.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today’s post comes from the Allegheny National Forest (ANF), Pennsylvania’s only National Forest. This photograph was taken in August 1926 and shows two lovers on the trail to Heart’s Content near Warren, PA. At this site in particular, the U.S. Forest Service conducted a series of experiments and ecological studies that focused on developing new methods to protect America’s beautiful wealth of land. A few examples of the new sustainability concepts introduced at ANF in the 1920s included preserving seeds for future growth, maintaining watersheds, and guarding wildlife habitats. The purpose of this mission was to create a long lasting and healthy forest, one that generations to come could all explore and enjoy. So on this day dedicated to love, show your affection to not only the people you care about, but the places you appreciate too! This post was written by Megan Kelly, Research and Writing Intern at the National Archives at Philadelphia. #happyvalentinesday #valentine #valentinesday #alleghenynationalforest #ANF #forest #love #hisory #archives Citation: Photograph from Heart's Content Trail; Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, Timber Management Research Station; RG095 U.S. Forest Service; National Archives at Philadelphia (NAID: 28208828) and (HMS ID/Record Entry ID: PH-3926).

“I mean what would people say if I told them that the Partridge Family was probably the single biggest influence on me becoming a professional musician? That doesn’t fit the standard narrative but I’d like to mention it.” - Stew Explore the musical influences of of PASSING STRANGE in this new blog post. #WilmaPassingStrange #PlayAllNight

    Musical Influences
    Stew had a passion for music from a young age. Between singing gospel at church and joining an R&B band at 14, his influences span every genre, from Gospel to Pink Floyd. Stew said in an interview with Wilma Dramaturg Walter Bilderback, "I mean what would people say if I told them that the Partridge Family was probably the single biggest influence on me becoming a professional musician?

Theater in Sketch: TIME REMEMBERED (IRC)

[Walnut Street Theatre Studio 5, 825 Walnut Street] February 6-March 4, 2018; idiopathicridiculopathyconsortium.org

    Theater in Sketch: TIME REMEMBERED (IRC)
    I sketched TIME REMEMBERED by Jean Anouilh, presented by the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium February 6-March 4, 2018 at the Walnut Street Theatre Studio 5 ( read the Phindie review). The cast in this play were given many chances to bring out characters that keep coming back on stage and the drama of not knowing what will happen next was absurd.

    TIME REMEMBERED (IRC): What is love and how do we kill it?
    In a lot of ways, the set for the Idiopathic Ridiculopathy Consortium's production of TIME REMEMBERED, which opened last weekend, looks like a lot of their other sets. Hand-made, hand-painted, relatively simple and with a lot of tricks in store. As we enter the space Katherine Perry is sitting and waiting onstage, trying to hold down her frustration.

The Wilma Theater added an event.

PART TWO: ADVANCED HOTHOUSE METHODS March 6 – 9 Advanced HotHouse Methods is designed for participants who already have some foundation in the physical and vocal practices of the Wilma HotHouse, either through taking Part One of the HotHouse intensive or through a previous intensive with Blanka Zizka. Advanced HotHouse Methods follows a similar structure as Part One, but will progress into new content. Justin Jain introduces the next level in the Method of Mr. Terzopoulos, which focuses on the vocal aspect of this training. In the second portion of each class, Blanka Zizka delves deeply into text work and what it means to fully embody the text in performance, which as Blanka explains in the Wilma HotHouse's New York Times feature, “is to have emotion, body, voice, all in fluid expression.” SCHEDULE PART TWO: Tuesday, March 6: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Wednesday, March 7: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM Thursday, March 8: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM Friday, March 9: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM ... Click on the ticket link to purchase tickets for both part one and part two of the HotHouse Intensive. For questions about the class call Education Assistant Rachel Beecher at 215-893-9456 ext. 113. TUITION: $250 for one week or $400 if you take both Wilma HotHouse Intensive: Part One and Part 2. NOTE: "Introduction to HotHouse Methods" or a previous intensive with Blanka Zizka is a prerequisite for taking "Advanced HotHouse Methods." * All HotHouse intensives are designed for advanced acting students and professional actors, but curious and brave directors, playwrights, educators, etc. are always welcome. * Come prepared to move. The work can be rigorous but adjustments will be made for various body types, injuries, and physical limitations
