Three Philadelphia theater companies end fall run

    It’s the last chance to catch three plays that end their fall run in Philadelphia on Sunday.

    From HBO screenwriter Sarah Treem, The How and the Why, looks at how an up-and-coming evolutionary biologist finds truth in a male-dominated field.

    Haley Joel Osment, who starred opposite Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense, ends his Philadelphia reunion, with the closing of Philadelphia Theatre Company’s Red.  Osment plays the assistant to artist Mark Rothko in the Tony Award-winning play about the painter.

    And also closing is the powerful and biographical play, Our Class.  This Wilma Theater production traces 10 classmates, set in a small town in Poland in 1926, as their lives and friendships take dramatic turns after the invasion of the Soviets, followed by German Nazis.

    If you missed these three dramas, the theater season in Philly is not nearly over, with a strong line up of holiday works on the way.
