FringeArts gets new additions

Written by , Posted in Art, Arts & Entertainment

Once called the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe will now be a year-long operation under the name of FringeArts. Underneath the Benjamin Franklin Bridge used to be a firehouse pumping station which has now turned into an artistic purpose. There is now a 232-seated theater which will host theatrical performances and other artistic events all year round. The space will also include an 830 square foot studio for rehearsal space. Events are taking place now, but the restaurant built with the space as an outdoor plaza open in the spring of 2014.
