I was lucky enough to attend Philadelphia’s 18th annual Bastille Day Block Party June 14, sponsored by London Grill and Wine Bar. The all-weekend event was held at Eastern State Penitentiary. We walked into a large crowd of excited people standing next to the large, castlelike doors of the prison. Lining the brick walls, thousands [...]

Drexel’s very own female a cappella group, The TrebleMakers, held its spring concert June 1 in the Stein Auditorium. Starting off the night with an old favorite, the group sang “Not Over You” by Gavin DeGraw. Soloist Rachael Frese did a nice job bringing this soft sound to life and starting the show on a [...]
“Some Nights,” the newest album by fun., was released Feb. 21, and to no one’s surprise, it amazes anyone who hears it. Opening the album differently than any other I have ever heard, with the addition of a chamber choir, “Some Nights” brings us back to the unique sound in the beginning of the album, [...]
Music lovers hit the streets of Northern Liberties Jan. 28 to witness the second annual Radio 104.5 Winter Jam at the Piazza. This free outdoor concert brought the people of Philadelphia together to share the music they love in continuation of the city’s rich musical culture — but with a modern twist. Three bands made [...]
When people hear the words “Ludwig Live!” (the Kimmel Center’s new musical), most wouldn’t believe this zany, almost comical title actually unlocks one of Philadelphia’s best, most unique and fantastic displays of theater in this city. With nothing more than a small intimate setting, a lighted stage, a grand piano, a wardrobe and two incredible [...]
This week American movie theaters open their doors to release the new Simon Curtis romantic adventure that is “My Week With Marilyn.” The film follows the story of Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) a young playwright striving for the chance to make his name in the movie industry. Along Colin’s journey he comes across some interesting [...]
This year, Drexel was lucky enough to present the talented freshman dance team, FreshDance. This group of girls has marveled their peers for the second term in a row after their first successful concert, “New Beginnings,” this past winter. To top off such a fantastic term, the girls ended with a bang: the freshman dance [...]
The only words to describe Wild Rompit are best said by the lead singer Blair Ollendorf: “Wild Rompit is three words, INFIDELS, CHEESECAKES, BOYS NIGHT OUT.” I can’t tell you what he means exactly, but after interviewing with this up-and-coming band, I think it is a perfect way to describe the group. This past week [...]
Many people say that life is a stage and we are the actors. For “Noises Off” by Michael Frayn, this idea is exactly the case. “Noises Off” is a hilarious British farce filled with complete chaos and enough hilarity to get you rolling in your seat even before the first scene is over. It begins [...]
“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is a musical that many people may call the most expensive disaster in theater history. Opening on Broadway after many halts and delays this past February, “Spider-Man” flooded with excited fans, waiting to see their favorite highflying superhero, Spidey, take the stage in a musical spectacular. To everyone’s dismay, this [...]
A nationwide phenomena erupted this past week as the streets of Philly filled with lines of impatient teenagers waiting for the doors to finally open and reveal the insane world that is “Dayglow.” “Dayglow,” as many may call it, is an experience like no other. The amount of energy and passion needed to survive this [...]
As I walked into the Mandell Theater, I truthfully had no idea what “Improvise” was going to be like. Coming in with the knowledge of it being a senior project, familiar formality wasn’t present, but a whole different experience was awaiting me. “Improvise” is a senior project by graduating entertainment and arts management majors Katie [...]
