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.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at
