On board the USS Olympia (the oldest steel warship still afloat), Philadelphia Artists' Collective (PAC) presents a tale that's as intimate as a family drama with the implications of a world at war. The sacrifice of honor, of children, of marriage and of pride all come to bear in this tale of goddesses, warriors, families and loyalties. Brush up your Greek history as Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Achilles and Artemis make their appearances known in this thrilling play dating back to 406 B.C. Produced in collaboration with the Independence Seaport Museum.

As The Matzo Ball Turns ~ The Musical 
Heart of a Lion Productions/La Princesa Productions
September 7 - 10
Purchase tickets here

Heart of a Lion Productions in association with La Princesa Productions proudly brings As the Matzo Ball Turns ~ The Musical to Philadelphia for the 2017 Philadelphia FringeArts Festival. Based on a book by the same name, Emmy Winner and former editor of Rolling Stone Magazine, Robert Wallace, describes the book as "Day of the Locust with a side order of noodle kugel." The live production picks up where the book left off and delivers even more zaniness in the form of toe tapping music and unforgettable performances. This original musical takes audiences into the comical world of an aspiring LA actor turned waiter. The show takes place at Independence Seaport Museum.
