Forge Theatre opens film noir musical comedy, Adrift in Macao beginning January 7th

Why Are They Waiting?

Everyone who comes to Macao seems to be waiting. What are they waiting for? They don’t really know. And as they wait, strange things begin to happen...

Join the sultry nightclub singers, trench-coated villains and other exotic underworld characters who inhabit the world of Adrift in Macao. A hilarious, irreverant musical comedy set in the steamy, shadowy world of 1950’s film-noir, this witty parody takes you deep into the mysterious tropics where anything can happen -- and usually does.

Forge Theatre in Phoenixville is proud to present Adrift in Macao, a zany, wise-cracking musical comedy written by award-winning playwright, Christopher Durang, with music by Peter Melnick.

Steve Shulz directs. The cast includes Diana Gagliardi, Gary Bullock, Bob Goretski, Leigh Ann Brienza, Russ White, Dru Ullery and Allie Greet.

Performances of Adrift in Macao are January 7, 8, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 at 8pm and January 16 at 2pm. Closes January 22. Adults $15, Students $12.
Forge Theatre, now in its 49th year, is at 241 First Avenue in Phoenixville. For tickets and information, call 610-935-1920 or visit http://ForgeTheatre.org.

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.
