Did He or Didn’t He? Forge Theatre Presents Doubt

Forge Theatre in Phoenixville continues its season with one of the most critically-acclaimed plays of the last decade -- John Patrick Shanley's Doubt: A Parable. This fast-moving, suspenseful drama opens November 5 and runs weekends until November 20.

Set in a 1964 Bronx Catholic school, the drama centers around the hard-edged principal, Sister Aloysius, who, after learning about a friendship between Father Flynn and a young boy in the school, decides to take matters into her own hands. Acting on her suspicions, Sister Aloysius is convinced that Father Flynn will be blindly protected by the church hierarchy, and decides to take him down herself. What follows is a bristling confrontation between the fiercely protective nun and the priest who feels that she has overstepped her authority.

The Forge cast for Doubt includes Sherry Snyder as Sister Aloysius, Eric Jarrell as Father Flynn, Andrea Daniels as Sister James, and Tia Allen as Mrs. Muller. Cindy Schneider is directing.

Performances are November 5, 6, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20 at 8pm; November 14 at 2pm. There will be a talkback with the director and cast immediately following the Sunday, November 14th performance.

Tickets are $12, student tickets are $10. Forge Theatre, now in its 49th year, is located at 241 First Avenue in Phoenixville. For more information, visit http://ForgeTheatre.org or call 610-935-1920.

Doubt won the Tony for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, Lortel and Obie Awards for Best Play.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
