    Great shows here but they keep it a bit warm. If you're prone to falling asleep in womb-like temps drink some coffee before-hand.

    Eh...I wasn't too impressed with "In The Heights " and even less impressed with the tight and warm theater itself.

    Have plans to see "The Prescott Method" at the Independence Studio? Be sure to come hungry because you'll leave full literally and figuratively! Best of all, this play is written by a Philadelphian!

    From Barrymores to Hepburns, some of the greatest actors in history have graced the stage. It also currently operates the original rope, pulley, and sandbag system that was used nearly 2 centuries ago
