The Philadelphia Theatre Company, located at Broad and Lombard Streets in the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, is presenting the Philadelphia premiere of Seminar through April 14.  The award-winning drama was written by Theresa Rebeck, creator of the hit TV series SMASH!   Rebeck has said, “There is something in the human spirit that yearns for and responds to a well-told story…Stories teach us so much.”  The top-notch ensemble cast of Rufus  Collins, Matt Harrington, Teresa Avia Lim, Genevieve Perrier and Luigi Sottile portray story-tellers all.  Sharp, witty and perceptive, Seminar introduces us to four novelists-in-the-making who have chosen to group together and pay a considerable sum to a literary guru for weekly sessions in which he will critique their work. The group’s undercurrents are constantly shifting as the would-be writers seek to curry favor with their instructor and with each other on their way to pursuing a successful literary career.  Seminar is a very interesting study in group dynamics and begs the question, “To what lengths will one go to achieve success?”  For more information or tickets, call 215-985-0420 or visit online at
