'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.

People buy flowers for their sweethearts all year round, but Valentine's Day is the day to go public with love. A simple bunch of daisies will not do. No, for maximum points, a long white box must arrive, a box that can contain only one thing: a dozen roses. Yesterday, Charles F. Kremp 3d Florists of Willow Grove was busy delivering these fragile symbols of love.

We're keeping our fingers crossed that the film Brotherly Love takes home the NAACP Image Award Friday night for Outstanding Independent Motion Picture. Not only is Overbrook High School the backdrop, but a makeup artist in the film - executive produced by Queen Latifah and starring Keke Palmer - is Northern Liberties' own Shannon Thompson . "I'm excited ... I'm super excited," said Thompson Wednesday morning, hours before she planned to hop on a plane to Los Angeles for the 47th celebration of African American superstardom held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

The Sundance Film Festival's awards, announced on Saturday, were dominated by Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation , the story of Nat Turner's slave rebellion that won both the Grand Jury Prize and the audience award. But another, less bloody take on the African American experience made waves in Park City as well: Southside With You , which follows a Chicago lawyer and her summer associate who just happen to be the future Barack and Michelle Obama on the course of their first date.

In the months before he killed his 26-year-old wife, Erica Crippen, Kyle Crosby shared meals with her family, visited their homes, and played with their children. Crippen's family trusted him, said her cousin, Barbara Kellam. Crosby and his wife also shared an infant daughter, Kay'lee, now 1. So on Thursday, when Crosby is sentenced to 31 years in prison for Crippen's slaying, Kellam said it will feel like losing another family member, even though she believes he belongs behind bars.

A shocking act of vandalism has inspired an outpouring of love from outside and inside a Catholic parish in Lindenwold. "We're praying for whoever did this," says the Rev. Joseph Capella, the pastor of St. Lawrence Church, where sections of stained-glass windows were smashed and the central altar was trashed shortly before noon Jan. 6. The perpetrator "must have been filled with rage," says Capella, 54, a Hammonton native who continues to set...

ARIES (March 21-April 19) A good time will be had by all this weekend - especially you. If you ever dreamed of popularity that soars, that drops great possibilities upon you, you've got it. You get previews of others' love dances, but not until late Sunday are you inclined to make a choice. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) With the ram twisting, turning, and ogling, you decide to put your energy into a more worthy activity. What is more worthy than love and friendship, too? You might find that tonight and Saturday aren't soaring with the heat of the moment, but someone you meet could become a lot more.

MOBILE, Ala. - It's a new world for Doug Pederson, whether he's evaluating defensive prospects, in addition to the offensive guys, here at the Senior Bowl for the first time in his career, or completing his first coaching staff - as Pederson did Wednesday, with the hiring of defensive line coach Chris Wilson and offensive quality control/ assistant wide receivers coach Joe D'Orazio. In his second week as the Eagles' coach, Pederson didn't suddenly gain qualifications; he still has just three seasons at the coordinator level behind him, he still hasn't called plays on a consistent basis.

Admirers of the seldom-heard 1913 Italo Montemezzi opera L'amore dei tre re ( The Love of the Three Kings ) are used to having to hunt for it, if only because it was so popular in the first half of the 20th century and fell off the map during the second half. But at the intermission during the Academy of Vocal Arts presentation of the opera Tuesday at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater, I was on a different search - for what I wasn't hearing. All the right things were on stage - a good, 60-strong orchestra under Christofer Macatsoris, a cast who, even if their voices weren't always up to the considerable task at hand, understood the piece so minutely as to know exactly how each scene functioned.

With talk of Oscar boycott in the air over the Academy's monochromatic nominations process, we thought we'd mention that the Academy is not only negligent in presenting awards to African-Americans. The number of Puerto Ricans who've won acting Oscars? Three. Jose Ferrer , Benicio Del Toro and Rita Moreno . Del Toro is the only winner in the last 50 years. The number of Asians who've won acting Oscars? Four. Yul Brynner , Ben Kingsley , Haing S. Ngor and Miyoshi Umeki . None in the last 30 years.

Though many hunkered down, others reveled in the historic snowfall that turned Philadelphia into a winter playground. They got into snowball fights, snowboarded down the Art Museum steps, and ran impromptu laps from LOVE Park to Eakins Oval. "It makes you really excited because you're smiling at people on the street," said Erica Hope, 27, of Chinatown, who was among about 20 who joined an afternoon snowball fight in Washington Square organized on social media. "You're all slipping together so it's a good thing and now you're cramming snowballs in each other's faces.
