Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival

Two Shakespeare productions a year, every year. Additionally, the Classical Reading Series explores the works of some of those playwrights who were contemporaries of Shakespeare, and those whose works have been profoundly influenced by Shakespeare.
The Philadelphia Shakespeare Festival Youth Ensemble, a company of student actors, grades 9–12, meet Monday evenings from September to June for training and rehearsals with professional actors and artists. Rehearsals will culminate in a full performance of a play in June, cast exclusively with student actors. The program will be free of charge to students who can commit to the yearlong program.

Copabanana (University City)

11:30-2am daily. No reservations.
Good times and good food are right around the corner. People watching is the favorite pastime at this tropical neon fantasy bar and grill. Tex Mex food, gourmet burgers and upbeat music make this a hot spot.


Some call it Philadelphia’s premier group for “downtown” new music. Others might say it’s Philadelphia’s only group for modern pieces. In any case, it’s the group that plays, and sometimes commissions, works by such contemporary composers as Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Fred Frith, Robert Ashley, Cynthia Folio, and Kitty Brazleton. They also have a new series at World Cafe Live. Events.
