Here is a sample topic page of theater stories. The tags are multiple and diverse. Only five tags allowed. So, I selected a variation of 3 Arden Theater tags, and 2 Walnut Street Theater tags. Unfortunately, the tags selected were not the primary story of the post.

Jim Cotter on Philadelphia's Boyd Theater. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named the art deco building on its 2008 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. It will be sold to a private investor next week who could, under an existing demolition permit, order its destruction.

Susan Lewis looks at Philadelphia's Settlement Music School, now celebrating its centennial.

Jason Peifer previews the Arden Theatre production of Our Town, the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Thornton Wilder.  Part of the show takes place in the historic Christ Church in Philadelphia's Old City, and each performance features a different musical group from the region.
