Philly is home to great dance, including 2 professional ballet companies. Student fans of contemporary ballet can get $10 student-rush tickets. Just show up with a student ID 1/2 hour before show time, when they start selling unsold tickets.

Philly’s only Victorian museum and garden, the lavishly decorated interiors (the subject of an upcoming post) at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion are an atmospheric setting for Victorian Theater. In addition to full length productions, the museum also hosts Victorian inspired murder mysteries – like the Sweeney Todd inspired version we participated in last week – one of us actually correctly identified the murderer (it was the understudy who was having an affair with the leading man!)
