'There's nothing more terrifying than a teenager with something to say. " And Amy has plenty to say in Clara Brennan's Spine . Inis Nua Theatre Company presents the American premiere of this feisty and endearing one-woman play. Although to call it "one-woman" is to misrepresent: Spine is an all-female effort, from the playwright, to the actor (Emily R. Johnson), the director (Claire Moyer), the scenic designer (Meghan Jones), the stage manager (Alyssa Cole), the production manager (Lauren Tracy)

SS. Cosmas and Damian Church, in Conshohocken, is closing its doors, effective March 16, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced Sunday. In July 2014, the church merged with three other nearby parishes - St. Gertrude, St. Mary and St. Matthew - to form a consolidated St. Matthew Parish under the archdiocese's ongoing Parish Area Pastoral Planning Initiative. St. Matthew, on Fayette Street in Conshohocken, became the main parish location, while the other churches became worshipping sites for occasional Masses and weddings.

The Palm, one of Center City's longest-running steakhouses, will close for what is billed as a major renovation after business on Feb. 29. The restaurant, in the Hyatt at the Bellevue at Broad and Walnut Streets, is due to reopen late in the fourth quarter of 2016 or early 2017. The parent company said the Philadelphia restaurant will be the seventh to receive a new design. The Palm opened in 1989 and quickly became a power room that helped usurp the city's private clubs. Of late, though, it has been upstaged by newer competitors.

Tarantulas: Alive and Up Close The long: In a dimly lit gallery next to the Academy of Natural Sciences' butterfly room, 20 hairy, crawly, colorful eight-legged species of the world's largest spiders quietly lurk behind thick panes of glass, spinning webs, digging holes and eating crickets. The short: Sounds creepy but it looks lovely. The demo: Grade school on up. Big kids: Will love seeking and finding crawlers hiding behind logs and buried beneath dirt.

The 76ers held on to a thrilling victory on Darryl Dawkins Tribute Night. After blowing a 15-point lead, they came through in the clutch to post a 103-98 decision over the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday. The Sixers improved to 8-43 despite playing without their lifeline, point guard Ish Smith (sprained left ankle). They snapped a four-game losing streak. "We were down without Ish, but other guys stepped up," Robert Covington said. However, he was the one that really stepped up in the clutch.
