The Baltimore Avenue Business Association, (BABA), represents the businesses along the vibrant Baltimore Avenue corridor in University City, West Philadelphia. All of the businesses are easily reached by taking the Green Line 34 Trolley or by following the bike paths. You can, of course, walk or drive.
This business corridor serves the diverse West Philly community which cuts across several neighborhood associations: Cedar Park, Garden Court and Spruce Hill. The heart of the community, of course, is beloved Clark Park where everyone can be seen at one time or another. Young or old, families, students, business people, anarchists, artists, musicians and their 4-legged friends all relax and play at the park. And twice a week, the Clark Park Farmers Market is jammed with people buying fresh farm produce.
Curio Theatre Company’s mission is to serve audiences in West Philadelphia and beyond with high quality, affordable theatre performances; to develop artistic talent through ensemble, company-based training and rehearsal processes; and to further academic, social, and personal development through arts education. The artistic and the educational arms of the theatre company are intertwined as we make our home in the diverse community of West Philadelphia.
By Brian Friel
Sometimes the high grass and golden fields of Ballybeg, Ireland can be unforgiving to the five unmarried Mundy sisters. Brian Friel’s poetic and heartwarming masterpiece invokes Irish tribal dancing that awakens the sisters’ long buried desires, vanishing dreams, and a last chance at happiness in the summer of 1936.
