Earth Day's still a couple weeks away, but then, every day is Earth Day in Mt. Airy, innit? A couple thoughts on that: First, the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival goes live at the Prince Theater this Friday through Sunday, and there are tons of inspirational AND aspirational movies both feature length and short to choose from. Also, Saturday is the 11th annual citywide Philly Spring Cleanup. The Mt. Airy Business Improvement District will meet at 9am at Trolley Car Park (6941 Germantown Ave) to tend to street trees along the avenue; East Mt. Airy Neighbors (EMAN) will lead a cleanup of Chew Avenue beginning at 9am at Save-a-Lot on the corner of Washington Lane; and our good pals at Lovett Memorial Library - Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia will lead a cleanup around the grounds of the library, so if you can't wait till the Go Mt. Airy Garden Party to preview Lovett Park, grab a broom and grab a sneak peek this Saturday. Photo: Ahhh, spring blossoms in the Cresheim Valley.

JULIUS CAESAR (Quintessence): Why must republics fall?

[Sedgwick Theater, 7137 Germantown Ave.] March 21-April 28, 2018; quintessencetheatre.org/julius-caesar/

    JULIUS CAESAR (Quintessence): Why must republics fall?
    Was Brutus an honorable man? The debate was a common rhetorical device in 16th-century schools, and Shakespeare uses this familiar conflict to frame his JULIUS CAESAR, now in production by Quintessence Theatre Group. The play is set in the final death throes of the Roman Republic.
