THEATER City of Nutterly Love: Funny as Bell! Philadelphia Theatre Company collaborated with legendary The Second City comedy theater to create this world-premiere revue, through July 26 at Suzanne Roberts Theater, 480 S.

She was born in Chester and now lives in L.A., but we claim her as our own. Before moving to the City of Angels, actor Jessica Graham was a staple of the Philadelphia-area scene. Graham co-founded both Theater Catalyst’s Eternal Spiral Project and Stonegraham Productions (producers of girL, Philadelphia’s longest-running lesbian party). She has also worked with a number of Philadelphia filmmakers and has not one, but two films in next week’s QFest (formerly the Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival). The multi-talented Graham has done stage, screen and television, including commercials for Southwest Airlines, AOL and PETA; various stage productions and the lead role in the sexy thriller “2 Minutes Later.” PGN had a chance to chat with her about her time in Philadelphia, her thoughts as an out actor and what’s next on the agenda.

Quince Productions has been reliable for presenting a steady string of quality dance productions and LGBT plays, but this summer it’s changing things up a bit by organizing a weekend overflowing with cabaret performances.

Theater Grey Gardens Philadelphia Theatre Company presents the eccentric lives of the reclusive Little Edie Beale and her mother, Edith Bouvier Beale, the cousin and aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, respectively, through June 28 at Suzanne Roberts Theater, 480 S.

The Bike Stop has been the “heart of the leather community for over 18 years.” At one time I found the place a little intimidating, but now if I want to stop by and have a quick beer or get a bear hug from Rick upstairs, I no longer feel like I’m invading the boys’ club. It’s still a male-centric, non-frilly spot (The Pit Stop in the basement has a sign that reads “No Sneakers — No Cologne”), as it should be, but now it feels like a place where I could hang with my big brothers and feel safe. (Not that my actual big brother is into leather ... at least not that I know of.)

The best TV reporters bring us more than the news — they bring us perspective, draw us into their stories, make us part of what they report on, be it major news or human interest.
