With summer winding down, many Philadelphia theatres have opened or are about to open plays and musicals in their spaces. And as you may know, as a loyal SEPTA Rider - you've got Perks! With that in mind, we've created a quick list of all the upcoming shows and their Perks offer:
"Who are we, if not you and me? Renowned visual artist Rosa Barba and Artistic Director Blanka Zizka team up to create this world premiere adaptation of There by Lebanese poet Etel Adnan. Visual, poetic, and theatrical worlds collide in this wild journey through memory, history, identity, and fantasy."
"One of the most successful musicals ever, this is the heart-warming tale of Annie's adventures, her escape from the orphanage and the wicked Miss Hannigan to a new life with Daddy Warbucks."
"This Tony Award-winning tale follows the intersection of cultures, classes, and nationalities – all fighting for their American dream in New York City at the turn of the 20th century – reimagined for today’s audience."
"Based on true events in the life of Barrymore Award-winner Steve Pacek, this meditation on life after tragedy was a hit of the 2010 Philadelphia Fringe Festival. A heartfelt story of learning how to carry on when true love goes missing, told simply and sweetly through music, clowning, dance, and theatre magic."
"This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships."
"Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung."
So make sure you get your tickets soon, because they're going fast, and you don't want to miss out on any of these shows!
