30 Days of Philly Arts: Graveyard Cabaret at Laurel Hill Cemetery - Day 14

Laurel Hill Cemetery is the final resting place for a who's who of Philadelphia history, from Thomas McKean, who signed the Declaration of Independence,
to General George Meade, who won the Battle of Gettysburg in the Civil War, to beloved sportscaster Harry Kalas.

The many guided tours at Laurel Hill provide insights from different perspectives into the history contained in this National Historic Landmark, one of very few cemeteries in the nation to be so designated. There are tours that focus in on writers or criminals or immigrants...one later this month is titled The Worlds of Thomas Jefferson at Laurel Hill on September 29th. And of course the cemetery is in its prime around Halloween.

During this time of the FringeArts Festival, Laurel Hill is also the setting for some of the festival's site specific offerings.

Tonight and next Friday and Saturday, New York's REV Theater Company presents Six Feet (Above and) Under: A Graveyard Cabaret, which has been been reconceived by company directors Rudy Caporaso and Rosey Hay and returns by popular demand.

The cabaret follows the story of departed souls as they wander from the world of the living to the world of the, yes, dead, accompanied by music from various artists from Bessie Smith to Scissor Sisters.

The Associated Press has said of REV Theatre Company's work "Not to be missed" and the Philadelphia City Paper has called them "exhilarating and imaginative."

The cost of the ticket includes cocktails served before the show. Reservations are required, tickets can be purchased here or at the door.
