This week, we're looking forward to the 12th annual BlackStar Film Festival, arriving at Center City venues August 2-6. Don't miss Kyle's interview with founder Maori Karmael Holmes. We're also very into a haunting, witch-centric Macbeth in Rockwood Park, a charming Sense and Sensibility at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, and more.
Next week, we're resting! The BSR editorial team will be on our annual hiatus from July 29 through August 13. But we have something special for you this year, while we're away: our first-ever essays issue, featuring some of our region's best writers. Look out for a guide in next week's newsletter, and then we'll see you back here on Wednesday, August 16 with a fresh batch of reviews, including productions of True West and The Bridges of Madison County.
We hope you're getting some rest and renewal this August, too.
