'To suffer love. " This unusual line appears three times in quick order toward the end of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing . Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's fresh, exuberant production illuminates the Bard's theme with a fullness and flourish. Much of Much Ado centers on the unwilling affection building between Beatrice (Eleni Delopoulos) and Benedick (Chance Dean), a proud maid and professed bachelor trading jaded barbs about how they will never marry, especially not each other.

Kremp 3d Florists of Willow Grove was busy delivering these fragile symbols of love.

Hours after being nominated for three Grammys on Friday, R&B singer-songwriter Jhene Aiko took the Electric Factory stage with humility, the set glowing with candles to get her to a level of complete Zen on her first headlining tour. As she faced the audience, her petite frame was buffeted by a strong gust of screams. Aiko, 26, responded with ethereal vocals. One of the first songs, "To Love & Die," featuring Cocaine 80s from her album Souled Out , released in September - had aspects of a warrior anthem as she crooned, "Where I'm from, we live for the love, die for the love.

John Patrick Shanley's Outside Mullingar is a lovable play about love. The Philadelphia Theatre Company production is lovable, too - full of quirky charm and tasty dialogue and, well, lovable characters. The cast is superb; they create rich accents and meticulously craft personalities. Shanley, best known for his New York voice in both the tough-minded play Doubt and the romantic screenplay for Moonstruck , here returns to his Irish roots. Outside Mullingar is set on two farms in rural Ireland, and although we're told the events begin in December 2008 and continue to 2013, it feels long ago and far away.
