FREE!! When: March 26th, 9:00 pm | Where: Plays and Players Theatre – 1714 Delancey Street Philadelphia, PA 19103
Ever consider dropping out of college to start a 3-person comedy theatre troupe? We wouldn’t recommend it, but it sure worked out for 4SW, three theatre students who decided to veer off and do there own thing. Now they’ve been delivering uncensored laughs for 4 years, making people feel insulted, offended and happy all at the same time. Monday is the night to meet the trio in person for free! So commit yourself to a night of non-stop laughs courtesy of 4SW.

Ever wished that stuffy lounge would instead play your favorite Journey music? Well, Brat Productions is launching an all out war in that pursuit in Let’s Start a War: Rock & Roll and Theatre Collide. It’s punk music vs rock music at a government sponsored cocktail party in this rock-cabaret inspired by the music of the Dead Kennedys and satirical political punk rock. So watch rock win it all in this third installment of Brat Production’s Rock & Awe.

Watson Adventures’ Murder at the Philadelphia Art Museum Scavenger Hunt
Price: $34.50 w/ Student ID | When: March 31st, 2:00 pm | Where: Philadelphia Museum of Art – 26th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19130
Campus Philly knows something you don’t: the truth behind a murdered curator. But we won’t tell. To find out who dunnit you’ll need to head over to the Watson Adventurer’s Murder Mystery at the Philadelphia Museum of Art to solve the crime yourself. There you’ll search hidden clues in famous paintings and crack a secret code in the victim’s appointment calendar. But hey, if the Renior’s cause you to veer off, murder can wait. This is a great opportunity to check out the museum in a unique and exciting way.
Azuka Theatre Presents Hope Street and Other Lonely Places
Price: $17 – $27 | When: Ongoing until April 1st, various times | Where: First Baptist Church of Philadelphia – 123 S. 17th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
A play for Philadelphia by Philadelphia, Hope Street and Other Lonely Places follows the lives of 5 locals. But the star of the show is the city itself. Each character attempts to find hope in the City of Brotherly Love, one searching Philly libraries for their long-lost love, another snapping pictures of the city as love letters and another trying to help his mother deal with the death of her older son. Show your support for this play about Philadelphia, written by Philadelphia local Genne Murphy and performed in by a Philadelphia theatre company.
