One of the jazz world’s biggest rising stars, the Grammy-nominated Cecile McLorin Salvant will thrill Philly jazz fans with a stellar solo vocal show. “If anyone can extend the lineage of the Big Three—Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald—it is this virtuoso.” —The New York Times

Potted Potter
Oct 20 – 25 | Perelman Theater


Playing to sold-out houses all over the world, this Olivier Award nominated parody takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books into seventy hilarious minutes. Even if you don’t know the difference between a horcrux and a Hufflepuff, Potted Potter will make you roar with laughter. Perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).
