This is theater that is urgent, necessary, and beautiful. Growing up in West Philly, with much family in North Philly, I had no idea theater existed in Philadelphia. Theaters didn’t put up posters in our neighborhood. Theater wasn’t “for us.” We weren’t invited to the table. Power Street is building a new table. One Philly--and this nation--desperately needs."
