After more than half a century, the Society Hill Playhouse will close its doors permanently on April 1, according to an announcement released Thursday by cofounder Deen Kogan. The playhouse, located at 507 8th Street, was founded in 1959 by Jay and Deen Kogan in the former David Garrick Hall. The two had met as Temple students, were married in 1950, and after earning advanced degrees in theater, returned to Philadelphia, where they became part of the local theater scene. They purchased the old Garrick Hall for a reported $10,000.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Properly functioning heating, ventilation, and cooling systems are paramount to maintaining objects and artifacts in museums. And the lack of such well-operating systems is apparently what forced the Noyes Museum of Art here to close Sunday. "The building was truly an oasis for culture and art in the region for a long time," said the museum's executive director, Michael Cagno, who said he was speaking on behalf of the museum and Stockton University, which entered into a 10-year collaboration with the Noyes Museum of Art six years ago. "And it is certainly a gorgeous space . . . but at the same time, the function of the museum and its mission will remain, just in a different format.

So 60 minutes before tipoff - to the minute - Penn basketball coach Steve Donahue put on his jacket in his office in the building next door and walked the three minutes over to his team's locker room, stopping on the Palestra floor Saturday for six handshakes and a hug for a Penn women's assistant. You can't blame a guy for believing in precise timing when your professional life is played out in increments of 30 seconds or less. Three and a half hours later, Donahue stood with his players on the Palestra court as Penn's band played the alma mater.

WE STILL seem to be early in the Eagles' coach-hiring process, as candidates' names continue to surface. The Eagles apparently will speak with Cincinnati defensive coordinator Paul Guenther within the next week, after a Thursday sit-down with Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. Multiple reports indicate the Eagles are scheduled to talk to Kansas City offensive coordinator Doug Pederson on Sunday, the day after the Chiefs visit Houston for their wild-card-round playoff opener.

The "liquidation sale" at the Macy's store at Suburban Square in Ardmore begins Monday, with steep discounts on most items. The store is one of 40 the company is closing nationwide. The closures were officially announced Wednesday as part of the company's strategy to cut costs and shed expensive real estate in underperforming locations. Although no date has been set for the Ardmore store's final day, the company said it wants this batch of stores closed by March 31. "The process of closing a store usually takes anywhere from eight to 12 weeks," Macy's spokeswoman Elina Kazan said.

Homage to Hamilton The guy on the $10 bill - and not cats - is the theme of the Little Lion , the upmarket but casual American bar-restaurant opening Thursday at 243 Chestnut St. (267-239-0688), filling the long-vacant space that was Haru at Third and Chestnut Streets in Old City. "The Little Lion" was the nickname of Alexander Hamilton, also the nation's first Treasury secretary, who lived up the block in the 18th century. Owners Chris Younge, a former manager of Devil's Alley, and entrepreneur Jason Dills are history buffs, and the resto is set up in a bank building across from the forthcoming Museum of the American Revolution.

Mike Piazza's election to baseball's Hall of Fame Wednesday completes a curiously connected trinity of locally born Dodgers. He now joins Roy Campanella and Tommy Lasorda as the last link in a chain that began more than a half-century ago in Brooklyn. Like Piazza, the manager who had a brief mid-'50s career as a pitcher was born in Norristown. One of his closest friends was Vince Piazza, his future catcher's father and another Norristown native. It's that Norristown connection, as much as anything, that Piazza can credit for his big-league career, not to mention his Hall of Fame selection.
