I parked on the street as I wasn't clear to where the 'free' parking was unless that was it!

You can dine before you go or enjoy light coffee shop style treat at the theater for a small price. I dined at 'Paris Bistro & Jazz Cafe 8229 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118. Nice happy hour food.

As Quintessence Theatre Group works to establish a resident repertory ensemble, Quintessence regulars Khris Davis and John Williams will lead this nine actor repertory ensemble. Mr. Davis, who played the title role in Quintessence’s acclaimed Othello this past fall, Haemon in Antigone, and Lorenzo in The Merchant of Venice, will play Bluntschli in Arms and the Man. Mr. Williams, previously seen as the Prologue in Antigone and Sganarelle in Don Juan, will play the title role in The Misanthrope. Quintessence also welcomes back ensemble favorites Sean Close (Roderigo in Othello) and Daniel Fredrick (the titular role in The Diary of a Madman, Cassio in Othello).

They are joined by Mattie Hawkinson* in her Quintessence and Philadelphia debut as Louka in Arms and the Man and American film actress Jennifer in The Misanthrope.
