Philadelphia Theatre Company is presenting an East Coast premiere of a bomb shell. Exit Strategy is a co-production with New York’s Primary Stages and will move to the Cherry Lane Theatre in March. It can be seen at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, 489 S. Broad Street, through February 28. It is not often that you have an opportunity to see an original drama in Philadelphia immediately before it reaches the stage in New York. Grab this opportunity. You won’t regret it. Exit Strategy has an excellent ensemble cast. Michael Cullen, Deirdre Madison, Aimé Donna Kelly, Brandon Pierce, Rey Lucas, Christina Nieves and Ryan Spahn are all involved to some degree or another in coping with a failing school destined to be closed and fighting back to make the administration allow the school to remain open. Alliances change and altered attitudes are surprising. Action is quick-paced and dialogue is contemporary. Playwright Ike Holder gets to the soul of the heartbreak of a potential school-closing and the effect it has on so many-administration, faculty, and student body alike.
