They also make a Quarantini (cocktail inspired by the disease) for each episode which is just super fun!

Being surrounded by such an awesome group of talented people.  I’ve been learning new digital platforms and the ways of working in this nonprofit artist space since day one, and I truly appreciate the important responsibilities and opportunities I’ve been given. This open office space is super cool and having dogs around is a huge bonus!

What event or performance did you enjoy most during the 2019 Fringe Festival?
NecroPhillyAhhh: A FUNeral Cabaret by the REV Theatre Company was my favorite Independent Artist produced show.

I’m continuously amazed at all the wonderful talent that is located within our great city!
