    Rodent droppings in kid's classrooms close Philadelphia care centers - Philly
    In this Clean Plates edition, there was moldy food, rusty food slicer blades, rodent contaminated cat food bags and a men's restroom without a door. But what was really disgusting was the number of cases of mice and rat droppings that were found in children's classrooms and restrooms. Philadelphia food inspectors temporarily closed 34 facilities between April 1 and April 13.

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.
