Guts and glory storm the stage in full leather boots as The Philadelphia Artists’ Collective (PAC) embarks on a sweeping adventure tale with Thomas Heywood’s The Fair Maid of the West at Broad Street Ministries (315 S. Broad Street). This long-submerged theatrical treasure rides the waves with dashing heroes, treacherous villains, plucky heroines and love on the high seas. Charlotte Northeast directs a well-known cast lead by Barrymore Award winner Rachel Camp as Bess, the Fair Maid of the West who will stop at nothing to be with Adam Altman's Spencer. There's love, danger and enough buffoonery to warm any heart.
The Fair Maid of the West opens Friday, April 3, 2015 at 8:00pm, with previews on Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 8:00pm. The show runs for a total of 12 performances through Saturday, April 18, 2015. Tickets are on sale for $20 (or $15 with student identification) by calling 215-551-1543 or visiting www.philartistscollective.org.Read More
