Sincerely, Philadelphia features Philadelphia Poet Laureate Yolanda Wisher (ACG '08) and poet Denice Frohman (LTA '12).

Will we elect our first female president, or the first president to star on reality TV?

In this open-letter style performance addressed to our new commander in chief, Philadelphians come together through storytelling to discover the common ground we'll need to move forward under new leadership.

Join us as artists share personal accounts in response to some of the biggest issues of the past four years such as #BlackLivesMatter, the European refugee crisis, Pope Francis' visit, the state of our schools, and more.

Voice how current events have impacted your life, and share your dreams for the future at onsite recording stations. 

Sincerely, Philadelphia will take place at Christ Church Neighborhood House Theater (20 N American Street) on November 9 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 before October 28 and $15 after. $10 for First Person Arts members. Buy tickets here.
