History Done Funny
Weekly Event - Every Saturday: 7:15 PM to 8:15 PM (EDT)
The Philly Tour Hub presents MadCap Theater Company and its irreverent and comical spin on American History, Madcap's hilarious two person cast works at a breathless pace to perform their version of the founding of Philadelphia by William Penn, Paul Revere's famous ride, the deadly Yellow Fever epidemic, John Paul Jones wrestling and the infamous baby toss. Betsy Ross, George Washington and other revolutionary legends get madcapped as well. Everyone becomes a part of the show which is the best of vaudeville, comedy club and live theater.
The Philly Tour Hub is a brand new location in Old City that provides a unique social gathering place for travelers and locals alike. Arrange a tour, talk to experts about what's going on in the City, arrange a meeting, give a lecture, watch a movie, take in a sports event or just hang out and take in the atmosphere.
We are also featuring the work of Mural Arts photographer, Jack Ramsdale, original photos of some great murals.
