Philadelphia Artists Collective moves around, both physically (performing site-specific works around Philly) and in terms of style. Classical theater, from Greeks through Shakespeare and his contemporaries, are central here, but this time a 19th-century murder melodrama is on tap. With three of their key people involved—Charlotte Northeast, who directs, and terrific actors Damon Bonetti and Dan Hodge switching roles from night to night—this fun, spooky show looks like a must.
