In its rehearsal spaces and on its main stage, the venerated Walnut Street Theatre currently resembles a jungle gymlike maze of elevated catwalks and open portals - all for Peter and the Starcatcher , which opens Thursday. Peter is such a massive, madly active production that, for the cast to rehearse adequately, a replica of the huge, multilevel, Rube Goldbergian set on the main stage, all ladders, paths, and openings, had to be built in the fourth-floor rehearsal space, for which, in the words of director Bill Van Horn, "rail heights and step lengths were cut in half, to get used to the real estate.

"We have one more stop before heading back to Izmir," said Ahmet, our tour guide. I was surprised, because I was ready to go back to the hotel. We had been touring the Turkish countryside for 10 hours, and my sweaty clothes and the dirt between my toes were making me very cranky. A shower was calling me and I needed a tall glass of cold water. No historical site or shop could be worth visiting at this time of day. I glanced at Amy, my college-age daughter sitting next to me in our chauffeur-driven car. I rolled my eyes, but I didn't say anything because I didn't want to insult the driver and our guide with my refusal.

The uniform was yellow and blue, the colors of the inaugural Eagles team in 1933 after the Frankford Yellow Jackets went bankrupt. Kearse didn't care that he was used only as a model during yesterday's news conference at the NovaCare Complex detailing the ways the Eagles would commemorate the anniversary.

The little girl turns around, startled at her father's response. "But Daddy, aren't you worried about protecting your company and employees in the changing global economy?

Delaware River Port Authority officials insisted that the PATCO High-Speed Line is safe despite yesterday's smoky motor failure that forced 35 evacuated commuters onto a Ben Franklin Bridge catwalk. The 6 a.m. drama that spewed smoke and sparks from the front engine of the Philadelphia-bound three-car train had nothing to do with PATCO's aging fleet, officials said. No one was hurt. "I'm assuring the public that they are safe," said John J. Matheussen, chief executive officer of the authority.
