In 2005, EgoPo moved from New Orleans to Philadelphia. Hurricane Katrina was part of it, but Philly welcomed this exceptionally intriguing company—under the imaginative direction of Lane Savadove—with open arms. And rightly so: EgoPo regularly delivers some of this city’s more thought-provoking theater. Their three-play seasons are organized as “festivals” around a unifying theme (“Russian Masters” in 2016-17), and the works are often radically, sometimes thrillingly, reinvented. In 2017-18, the focus will be playwright John Guare’s “Lydie Breeze” trilogy, which EgoPo will stage at Christ Church Neighborhood House.
