drowns in a bathtub.-

haunting your every breath.-

ABOUT REV THEATRE COMPANY:
REV Theatre Company brings a fresh contemporary vision to existing dramatic works and company created new pieces. We believe that theatre is an experience, an event: the worlds we create are visceral and immediate. The REV aesthetic fuses a profound exploration of the texts with a ferocious emotional landscape, intensely physical staging and musical production numbers.
We present our work in unique and site-specific spaces: we have performed on the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum, a parking lot in New York, a pier on the Hudson River, a tiny storefront on the Lower East Side of NYC, two Philadelphia cemeteries and the previously empty, disused lot next to the Broad Street Ministry.
One of our trademarks is the active involvement of the audiences in our outdoor productions as we bring the audience into the world that we create. We acknowledge and encourage direct communication and response from our audiences, engaging them in a collective participation with the performers, the story, the action, the space and each other.
REV’s production of Hamlet in Laurel Hill Cemetery 2017 played to sold-out houses. Our summer 2019 production of The Witch of Edmonton at Laurel Hill was also a sell-out. In 2020, REV will present Macbeth, once again in partnership with Laurel Hill Cemetery.

“Performers with killer pipes—spine-tingling, dead-on sexy” (Phindie)
“A show filled with nothing
but highlights. GO!”

“This is a terrific cabaret, campy and vampy with that twist of risqué strangely life-affirming, a funereal roller coaster” (Lysander LG blog)
