Thanks ...

Thank you to everyone who came to see Mother Courage and Her Children. We were terribly proud of the production and hope that you enjoyed your time in the theatre.

Recently, local critic Jim Rutter penned an interesting piece for the Broad Street Review. In it, he points out how few theatres in Philadelphia have strong track records for producing plays with meaty, interesting, lead roles for women. He praises our Joanna Rotte and Kristen O'Rourke, both in Mother Courage, and wonders why two recent grads, Marcie Bramucci and Jessica Dal Canton, haven't appeared in Philly yet. (The answer to the Marcie question is easy -- she moved to New York!)
