Take a stroll through Old City Philly for magic and mystery, inspired by history! You will visit several historic locations each of which is the basis for a comedic and mind-bending performance. In the program are:

  • “If I Could Save a Penny in a Bottle”
  • “Say Hello to my Little Benjamin Franklin”…..and much, much, more!

You will never see Philly the same way again!
