PASSING STRANGE (Wilma): A worthwhile caricature of art

[Wilma Theater, 265 S. Broad Street] January 10-February 18, 2018; wilmatheater.org.

    PASSING STRANGE (Wilma): A worthwhile caricature of art
    Stew's semi-autobiographical rock musical, revived this month at Wilma Theater, follows a middle-class African-American youth on his journey through the European art scene in the 1980s. The script isn't strong - the portraits of both cultures are cartoonishly exaggerated, the songs (created with Heidi Rodewald) are formulaic, the lyrics are repetitive and cliched - but the talent and unity of the cast make the experience worthwhile.

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings of the National Archives are brimming with hand-written records like this document, the Deposition of John Snyder. This document is the sworn statement of John Snyder regarding the events surrounding the assault of Garrik Hulsecamp by Ezikiel Teel. It comes from a criminal case file which consists of assault and battery charges brought against Ezekiel Teel for his alleged assault of a man by the name of Garrett Hulsecamp on his ship in October of 1790. You can learn more about this case, and see the handwriting up close, by visiting our online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806. We know that last week’s Citizen Archivist Challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue the important work of unlocking history by transcribing and tagging our records! If you haven’t already, get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist) to learn how to start and to find specific missions. 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.
