BWW Reviews: Fells Point Corner Theatre's ORPHANS Deserves Love
by Cybele Pomeroy - Nov 22, 2013

Let me just say that I am a fan of small community theatres tucked into residential neighborhoods, so naturally I'm inclined to feel kindly towards FPCT. Aside from the issue of parking on the streets of Fells Point, that is. The theatre, which is in its 27th season of operation, has been updated bit by bit, so the overall feel of the interior is contemporary, open and welcoming. The theatre seats are comfortable and don't squeak at all. At intermission, there are refreshments, including wine, available in the lobby. (more...)

The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), one of the most prestigious and oldest art schools in the nation, presents Wrong's What I Do Best, an exhibition transcending social, political and personal fault lines intent on provoking dialogue through the artists' fearless exploration of the deep and sometimes dark edges of our world.
