A boy, a girl and a bookstore come together in the magical Michael & Edie, which makes its Philadelphia premiere under the direction of James Ijames. The pair meet in a magical labyrinth of books, where they can bury themselves among the stacks in order to get away from their real lives. This world full of illusions -- where aisles turn into secret passages, snow falls from the ceiling and tea kettles turn into crickets -- gives way to the poignant poetry of being young and lost in a confusing world. Described as "heartbreakingly beautiful" by NYTheatre.com, this drama will captivate and enchant.

The play was great--really well done. It was a packed audience. The tickets I got from Goldstar for this performance were comp tickets so they only cost $6.50 each for the service charge. I got tickets through Goldstar for a previous show at this same venue and they were $12.50. If you're going on a date or something, I would suggest spending the few extra bucks because the "free" seats were pretty cramped compared to the ones we got before. Great show though and excellent acting. A very interesting modernization of a medieval classic.
